From authentic Indian recipes to those with a fusion twist, these buffets offer it all when it comes to sumptuous Indian cuisine. As one of the oldest cuisines, the use of spices and a myriad of ingredients offer vast complexity in flavours when it comes to Indian food.

Deepavali, also known as Diwali, is called the Festival of Lights, as it symbolises the spiritual victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance. One of the most popular festivals of Hinduism, the reason that devotees adorn their homes with lights is that it’s the time to destroy dark thoughts, eradicate dark evils, and provide the strength to carry on with good intentions and vibes for the rest of the year.
