Respond to Review of Smrat Pure Veg - Ground Floor
by JohnnySensible

Review: Still very, very simple. Decidedly grubby. If you are not "India experienced" maybe avoid. They have cleared away some boxes so perhaps 6 people can sit there now. This evening I had 2 alu (potato) parathas - 1 portion of channa (chick peas) - 1 portions of a gobi (cauliflower) dish - plus a pakora - all vegan - nicely spiced - all for HK$33 (just over US$4) exactly 'I am satisfied'. Updated from previous review on Friday June 15, 2007 A difficult place to review. Not easy to categorize. Super simple - super basic - super cheap. Friendly - often quite exuberant staff. The "Sardar Ji" at the counter will forget your order within 30 seconds. Seating for 4 small people or 2.5 large people in the storeroom at the rear. Cooked dishes come down in the elevator from the upstairs branch of Smrat. Unfortunate name - the hellish Chung King Mansions building certainly has numerous rats but Smrat is clean. I eat there often - it is always a good experience. No menu that I have ever seen. Alu paratha's / channa masala / alu matar / tarka dhal etc. I do not bother with the microwave - room temperature is just fine for me. I also love Monty Python & The Goon Show.
