Proximity: 2 blocks, 5 minute walk.
Menu: Diverse menu with lots of choices. Multiple vegetable sides available. Hidden lunch specials available but not advertised on menu.
Price/Value: $6-10. Cheap lunch specials available (gyro sandwich combo with rice and sides for under $7), but vegetarian options were more expensive.
Service: Great. Service took a while but was “memorable.”
Freshness/Quality of Ingredients: Very good. The naan was toasted to order, the meat was incredibly delicious.
Taste/Flavor: The green spicy chutney was amazing. All of the side dishes were incredibly scrumptious (particularly the pumpkin, chickpeas, and spinach). The chicken was a teeny bit dry but seasoned well. The naan was made with yeast, so it was a bit puffier than normal nan, yet had a nice crispy finish on the bottom.
Pros: Free soup while waiting for food, fun Bollywood music videos in background, restaurant would be a good place to enjoy a meal in as well as for take-out, interesting yogurt drinks available, the server tolerated our inane questions and made helpful suggestions, lunch specials available.
Cons: A bit of a long wait for the food. The vegetarian options were more expensive than some of the meat dish lunch specials, the Bollywood music videos could grate on one’s nerves after a while.
