I just got off the Gem last Sunday, and the Indian items on the buffet were my favorites. I think I have photos of all three Indian meals I had...let me see...
Day 1 (embarkation day)
yellow lentils, eggplant, and curry noodles (curry noodles were not like any actual indian food i've ever had...so not sure if they count!)
Day 3 (first day in port--Bermuda_
malai kofta (my favorite--and these were pretty good, too!) and some kind of potato pepper dish.
I know that I had Indian three days (every day that I had lunch at the buffet) and I know that there were different offerings each day...and that they were always veggie (I eat meat but not often and rarely from a buffet!) I'm almost positive that they had some sort of saag paneer on one day. Anyway--hope this answers your question.
And as for quality--it was surprisingly good. There was actual spice, which is often lacking in buffet settings. And the naan that was out every day was much better than the rice--which was kind of over cooked.
