    As long as you have a vegetarina main I would be happy and I think other guests would be hapy too. Lasagna will hold up better than lamb in a buffett unless you are having it as a carving station. It tends to dry out in the bain maries. you might want to add a rice dish for the tandoori chicken. I would swap out the crispy noodle salad for a rice dish. The noodles don’t really tie in with the rest of the menu.

    I agree with swapping the noodle salad for a rice dish that will go with the chicken. I would also add a vegetarian option, and consider adding a fish option. I would also consider swapping the Caesar salad or the Greek salad for a simpler mixed-leaf salad; I like to have salad as a side with lasagne and chicken, but don’t like either Caesar salad (too heavy and high in calories) or Greek salad (depending on the ingredients).

    I know you’re not having vegetarian guests, but… As a vegetarian, I would be ABSOLUTELY FINE with the above menu. People get all worked up about accommodating vegetarians, but I could eat 7/10 of those things. No problem 🙂

    I voted no since there’s no vegetarian option, but I guess if you’re 100% sure you don’t have any coming, then maybe it’s ok.  I just can’t imagine how there wouldn’t be at least a couple, but I suppose they could survive on the side dishes.

    Personally, I’d eat the lasagna, but not the chicken nor lamb.

    I think that it is always helpful to have vegetarian and seafod option for the main course…I would pick one meat option (with meat or chicken), something with fish; and vegetarian option…total of 3 main courses.

    I would definitely have a fish dish in there, otherwise your meats are both quite heavy. And not enough people like lamb to have it.

    lamb and chicken

    rice side -goes well with chicken or lamb

    mixed leaf salad you could offer ceasar dresing 

    no fresh fruit or cheese for the kids and adults who want to nibble instead of dine?
