Thai Spice Buffet & Restaurant2501 W. Parmer, 821-1522
Monday-Friday, 11am-2pm, 5-9pm; Saturday, 5-9pm
Many table-service restaurants with lunch buffets treat their sneeze-guarded fare as some sort of ugly stepchild, but you won't find that attitude at Thai Spice. Most of the food on their $7.95 lunch buffet is comparable to what you get when ordering off the menu, which is especially good at a superlative Thai restaurant like this. Sweet, spicy Moussaman Curry, plentiful Pad Thai, and addictive Chicken Cakes compete for your appetite along with a separate buffet for vegetarians.
