We used to go to this mega South Asian buffet restaurant (although not for some years). Housed in an old cinema, it seats what must get on for 500 customers. I’ve never known it other than packed. The noise, just from normal conversations, can be deafening with so many people in there, often in large family groups. In its early days, most customers were Anglos but it’s customer base is now from the sub-continent. Food is now halal and no alcohol is served.
We’ve not been in HO times but this Chowhound review will give you a flavour of the place. Sad to see the business side of things badly affected over a number of years.
