All you can eat
Lunch buffet a convenient and affordable option

 Whether you enjoy a great salad, freshly cooked meat off the skewer, or an ethnic cuisine, there is a wide array of self-serving options at more than a dozen weekly lunch buffets across southern New Hampshire.

 
Go hot or go cold
The weekly lunch buffet at Gauchos Churrascaria Brazilian Steak House in Manchester is a good option for those looking for a quick hot luncheon entree served fresh off the skewer or a make-your-own salad, said Gauchos owner Jose Nieves. He said both hot and cold options are offered every day during the lunch buffet hours, so there is always something for everybody, whether it is beef, chicken or vegetables.
“People can come in and pick up whatever they want and then they can leave, they don't have to wait for anything,” he said. “And we cook everything fresh every day.”
He added that a majority of the options on both the hot and cold buffets are gluten-free, allowing those with diets or health concerns to have many foods to choose from.
 
Healthy and fresh
Lovers of Indian food need look no further than Taj India (with locations in downtown Manchester and Nashua), which offers several vegetarian and non-vegetarian options during their lunch buffet.
“The menu has about 30 to 40 dishes and they rotate every other day,” said Rakesh Kumar, owner of both of Taj India's restaurants. “We offer a chicken masala, a chicken curry, a goat curry and a lamb curry. … And then we have veggies like a vegetable masala and a spinach with potatoes.”
Kumar said the all-you-can-eat price of the buffet will get you an appetizer, a dessert and tea in addition to several of the entrees and soups. He added that he has found the lunch buffet to be a great way to promote Indian cuisine dishes to people living or working nearby who may not be familiar with them.
“A lot of times I feel like everybody thinks Indian food is always spicy, but it's actually not, it's mild,” he said. “We just serve spicy things on the side.”
But the combination of walking inside a restaurant with a fresh, home-cooked meal readily available — as well as the quick fix option it provides for people with a limited window of time to eat lunch during their work day — is something Kumar said makes lunch buffets an attractive option.
“We have so many more options to eat every day, so people can try different things each time they come,” he said.
 
Award-winning eats
The San Francisco Kitchen, located in the heart of downtown Nashua, offers an award-winning lunch buffet every Wednesday through Friday.
“It's mostly a West Coast type of Chinese food,” Sebastian Ramirez of the San Francisco Kitchen said. “We have a little bit of everything for everybody. … We have a variety of rices, soups, and noodles and veggies, and we also offer fresh sushi and vegetable sushi and fruit salad.”
Ramirez said the restaurant has several regulars throughout the week and added that allowing customers to serve themselves with whatever they want makes the lunch buffet at the restaurant popular. The San Francisco Kitchen is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week.
“We especially have regulars during the buffet hours and we always make sure it's nice and fresh for them,” he said.”
