Respond to Review of Chowpatti
by Lindsey

Review: My husband and I went to Chowpatti last night for our anniversary and were happy with our experience. Our waitress was nice, knowledgeable, and attentive. They were able to make mostly anything vegan. I was only disappointed once during our trip when I found out they no longer make the vegan sesame dressing listed on their menu for the falafel, but the waitress brought some oil and vinegar to the table for me to make up for it. My only other complaint is that many things had to be purchased separately. A mango topping for the Indian nachos was $1 extra. Cucumbers and spinach for my falafel was $1 each. Rice and bread for my husband's saag aloo was $1 extra for each. The food was good, and we loved having SO much to choose from. We are so used to going into a restaurant and not having to think about what we are getting, since there's usually only one option. Quite a change going from that to a hefty, spiral-bound menu!! We were so happy they had two vegan desserts. The brownie and cinnamon roll were very small, especially the brownie, but they were both extra delicious. I can't complain too much about the smaller portions, since I at least left feeling nice and satisfied instead of overstuffed. Overall, it's not an AMAZING place, but it is a very nice place to have around for vegans or vegetarians - not too many vegetarian places in the suburbs it seems! They seems to be focused more on healthy eating than on making food that just blows you away (usually stuff that's heavy in fat and salt). They also have a large selection of fresh juices to choose from. I would love to go back to try some of them out. We will probably return many times to try as much as we can on their HUGE menu. This place probably would have gotten five happy cows from me had they some dairy substitutes available instead of just having the option of dairy omission (although, I'm still grateful for that option).
