Respond to Review of Bawarchi Indian Kitchen
by spiceislandvegan

Review: I thought it is the best tasting North Indian vegetarian cuisine. I usually eat South Indian because lots of vegetarian dishes available and lots of spices but this chef has created dishes for only veg and vegans. I gave him 2 thumbs up since usually North Indian includes meat dishes in their warm buffet. He is able to provide about 20 for vegetarians and vegans. Yay! We should not be complaining! It was hard to choose so I chose the jackfruit perwoshari (or something like that), the soy fish and soy chicken dishes. They are delicious. I chose whole wheat roti which was excellent. My husband had the garlic naan and he thinks it was too thick. He had the black garbanzo dish and some other legume dishes which were also good. There was also a 'salsa' station like in Baja Fresh (a small one). What was called salsa is actually sliced onions with different spices. We tried that and they were GREAT condiments. The dishes here are NOT HOT. They have complex flavors and lots of spices but they are not hot to burn your mouth. They are quiet enjoyable and very flavorful! The Chef is a systematic and methodical guy. He showed us how to arrange our trays on our table, where to put our salsa, etc. He meant well though and maybe some people took that the wrong way. He even showed his worker how to dip the curry from the warming table. I think he is just that kind of guy who wants everything done right. We weren't offended. The place is clean but too small. We saw a South Indian restaurant next door that is bigger. I wonder why he didn't pick that location or maybe that restaurant was there first. I think this restaurant is going to do well since it was crowded with people coming in and out to dine in or to take food-to-go. Unfortunately, it is too far for us to dine here often. We also took food to go and was suggested to get the Grilled Jalapeno dish by a customer. We will definitely be back when we are in the area. BTW, the combo dinner price is now $9 which is not bad considering the area.
