I had read about this place on happycow, and here's my New India Sweets and Spices review.
I was in the Fairfax area and decided to stop in and grab something to go. Parked on the street just in front of the store.
The store is small with narrow isles. You walk straight to the back to find the food and the menu on the wall. I asked the woman who worked there (probably an owner, and she seemed impatient and hard face) what the vegan items were, and she told me that they use corn oil instead of ghee in many of the dishes. The steamtable selections were few. I was surprised to find this place also offers MEAT (chicken). Very unlike all the "India Sweets and Spices" place all over.
After perusing the menu and glancing over the ready made dishes, sweets, and snacks, I ordered a couple samosas plus a small serving of spiced cashew nut mix and a small serving of savory peas and nuts mix.
The samosa didn't taste so good, perhaps below average. The cashew nut mix was way too salty, and the peas and nuts mix was salty and unpleasant to eat. I took a few bite and threw everything away, I'm sorry to say. Oh well.
Cons: uninspired food, has meat, salty
