Taj Mahal on McKnight is a tremendous Indian restaurant, and the Monday/Thursday dinner buffet is an absolute steal at $10. http://www.tajmahalinc.com

Have you been to Tamarind in Oakland Shyster? Very good Indian, best in the city IMO.

Yes, and I like Taj Mahal better. Tamarind in Oakland used to be Indica Indian Bistro. My during the Indica days, my brother ate there so often that he was on a first-name basis with the owner. When the owner sold, he took his recipes with him. IIRC, in my brother's opinion, the food under the new (Tamarind) ownership went way downhill. I don't think he even eats there anymore. I can ask him.

I also eat fairly often at the Tokyo Sushi Buffet next to Best Buy. Decent sushi and a nice selection of hot dishes too. There's always Mad Mex too.

I live in Ross and I concur that while the McKnight corridor has plenty of restaurants, most of them are generic chains or aren't all that good. There's a distinctive lack of fine dining.

sesame inn is pretty good IMO.

I actually really like the Hunan Chicken and General Tso's from a place here called China 88. They may or may not have locations elsewhere. You're not gonna travel to Waynesburg to eat there, but I like it. ;)
