Indian | Virginia Beach, Norfolk / Virginia Beach

This was our first visit to NanKing and we plan to return! We were greeted promptly and seated right away. We were there for the vegan buffet and were not disappointed. A gentleman showed us the appetizer tables and explained how to assemble the little puffs - I don’t remember what they are called, but they were delicious! We sampled nearly every item from the buffet and enjoyed seconds, and some thirds, of our favorites. The server was pleasant and attentive. A great dinner!! (Our only non-positive comment is related to the uncomfortably chilly seat - in a corner booth. Thankfully the food was warm. 🙂) More
