For Austinites, the drive to Pflugerville is worth it to dine at Taste of Ethiopia. Family-run, the restaurant serves lovingly cooked Ethiopian specialties, pleasing both vegetarians and non-vegetarians. Like most Ethiopian restaurants, meals are served family-style at Taste of Ethiopia. Stews are ladled onto a thin round of injera, or Ethiopian sourdough flatbread, on a platter placed in the center of the table along with rolled up injera. Diners pick up morsels of stew with the bread. Delicately spiced, stews range from mild to spicy and include beef, chicken and lentils, along with lots of vegetables. To try a wide selection, opt for a sampler platter or try the lunch buffet, 11a-2p on weekdays.
Tucked away in a shopping center, Bombay Express is not your typical strip-mall fare. With a menu of tasty bites from North and South India, Bombay Express offers a spicy respite from the burgers and fries.

Bombay Express is also one of the few restaurants in Austin to offer chaat, or Indian street snacks. Choose from samosas, fried dumplings and several types of puri, crisp bread with veggies and sauce. Can't make up your mind? On weekends, the thali provides a mind-boggling amount of small dishes for a steal.

Buffets usually are hit-or-miss; most of the time, the food gets stale in the warmers on the serving tables. However, the lunch buffet of Chola in the south side of Round Rock, is a step above the rest: most of the dishes are rice concoctions (such as biryani) and spiced stews (such as curry). Chola stays true to the Hindu roots of India by burning votive incense near the restaurant's entryway, as well as by offering a palate-cleansing mixture of anise seeds (some candy-coated, some not) after the meal. Those new to Indian cuisine can ease into this type of cooking by sampling the chicken tikka masala, tandoori fish, and naan (Indian flatbread). Chase everything down with sweet and sour lassi.
