Respond to Review of Balti Drambliai Vegetarine Kavine
Review: I really wanted to like this place. There were many positives. I liked the atmosphere (young and alternative/hippy), the interior was nice - bricked walls, quirky, the staff were friendly and efficient, the food was very cheap and I liked the fact that you could get alcohol here (so many veggie places don't serve it). But, and it's fatal for me, the food was flavourless. I had Indian food, but there were no Indian spices at all. No coriander, no turmeric, no garam masala, no cumin. As a result everything just tasted like an unseasoned stew. Filling, healthy, vegetarian, cheap - yes, but not tasty at all. I went on a Sunday night and it was really busy so it's obviously popular; maybe the food has been adapted for local tastes? I'm glad it's doing well, but it's not for me as I like food with a bit of flavour. That said, it'd be a nice place to go for a drink. There's a huge selection of teas on the menu. Or just go there for a beer and a plate of chips! The terrace would be great in summer and the location is lovely.
