The "Lunch in Harvard Square" Blog - Restaurant Reviews

Since starting to work in the Square in mid-August, I'm trying to eat lunch at a new restaurant every day until I can't find any more. Here's my list of the Top Ten Lunch Restaurants in Harvard Square (Food Only). Got a suggestion on a new lunch spot for me? New Restaurants to Try in Harvard Square.

India Castle

74. 12-18 India Castle 928 Massachusetts Ave. Summary: Decent Indian buffet, nothing special.

I didn't even know India Castle existed until a couple days ago - it's very close to the Plough and Stars, closer to Central Square than Harvard. Given there are four Indian restaurants in the heart of Harvard Square (about 15 minutes walk away), India Castle probably serves more the in-between and Central crowd, I think. A lot of people live between Harvard and Central, so the restaurant has a market to address.

The food isn't anything to write home about. The buffet (taken for granted, all Indian restaurants offer lunch buffets) is of average size, with foods that are a bit oily but nonetheless decent. Tom and I did take-out from the buffet with good sized, but not huge, take-out dishes. The foods all seemed to have the same basic taste to them - not much stood out. The salad was weak - iceburg lettuce and frozen tomatos. They did give each of us a full piece of Naan bread.

$8.30 per person - decent value.
