Wow! The best Indian food I've ever had!!!
Posted on 06 / 29 / 2009
First off, the kind of vegetarian I am is known as "Asian vegetarian" or sometimes "Pure vegetarian". I don't eat onion, garlic, leeks, chives, or shallots. Usually people that abstain from these vegetables do it for religious purposes.
I love Indian food and most Indian restaurants have some vegetarian dishes, but you will rarely find one that has some dishes without onion or garlic. I always ask and there are some dishes that they can do this with and others they can't. I first called up "Guru" and asked if they had many vegetarian dishes. The lady said they did. I asked if the chef could prepare any of those dishes without onion or garlic. She explained that they have this request quite often and they can certainly accommodate me. I was very happy so I went right over.
We were a party of 4, including my little boy, less than a year old. I identified myself as the one who called about no onion and garlic. She was surprised and said that most of their customers that request that are almost always Indian, and sometimes Asian. My wife and her sister are Taiwanese and I'm a Canadian caucasian. Apparently there are many Indians from southern India who don't eat onion or garlic. Okay, I see I'm rambling now.
The place was nice and clean. The staff were very courteous and pleasant.
Here's what we had:
Basmati Steamed Rice
Plain Naan x2
I've eaten at many Indian restaurants before and this food was hands down the best I've ever had. Easily. Delicious and spicy dishes, and the naan bread was perfect. I will recommend this place to anyone interested in having fantastic authentic Indian food. Oh, I can't wait until I have more overseas friends or relatives come visit. This place will be remembered always.
As for the person that just gave a terrible review before me, it's too bad you didn't try the food. $11 or $12 for an entree is not too bad. I wondered about the size of portion and they told me that the food was served in 16 oz. bowls. I didn't know how big 16 oz. was, but for 3 people eating 3 dishes plus 3 breads and 1 rice, we were all stuffed. The total bill was under $50 before tip and I felt that was reasonable. Again, super-delicious!
Thank you, "Guru", and many compliments to the chef!
clean and nice decor, excellent service, great, great food
