Excellent Indian Food!
Posted on 07 / 05 / 2011
Streets of India has some of the best Indian food I've ever tasted, and ALL of the food served there is either vegan or vegetarian: there are NO meat options (hooray!). At our lunch there today, my partner ordered the Masala Dosa, which was enormous and came with two sauces: one hot & spicy, the other mild & tangy. Despite the huge size of the dosa, my partner had no trouble finishing it, so I know he liked it. I had the Thali plate, which comes with 3 vegetable choices, either white or brown rice, raita, a side of relish, naan, and a beverage. My vegetable choices were spinach, cauliflower, and okra, all of which were delicious and nicely spiced: not too hot but just hot enough for my taste. (ALL of the other selections also looked great.) Instead of regular naan, I opted to pay a dollar extra for the garlic naan, which was superb.
We opted to sit outside on the front patio, as there didn't seem to be any air-conditioning inside. The patio tables all had umbrellas, which we appreciated, and they were very clean as well. Also, the patio is high enough and far enough away from Ventura Bl. that no dirt or car exhaust fumes blew on us or into our plates. Though the temperature outside was quite warm, we preferred to sit out there rather than inside where it felt even warmer.
There could have been better coordination behind the counter, but both servers were friendly, and both came out to see if everything was okay.
I wish Streets of India would open a restaurant in Hollywood, so that we could enjoy their fantastic, all-vegetarian food regularly.
