Just 3 Indian places combined in Spokane & Valley .. well tough to get a perspective about how good the food is when you feel like comparing them.
But then it is a good thing that I have eaten Indian all my life :P and I am capable enough to say a word or two about the food.
BTW a thing which stands out among the other Indian/Pakistani restaurants I have been to are the interiors .. everything neat & clean & new & yeah not much to look from outside but the interiors are really nice. However, the buffet section (where the food is laid) is a bit congested which shouldn't be so and there are 2 rows of food trays the far end is tough to get access too .. well could be a strategy too so that people get annoyed and take less food :P b'coz the food is really worth it :)
Jokes apart, let me account for our lunch the other day -
The buffet was with limited choices, though I, personally, do not have anything to complain about .. the vegetarian people were not very excited .. not saying that they did not like their food, they did, very much did but the choice of mains was rather regular for us .. nothing which we do not prepare in our daily routine.Anyway, here it goes
Vegetable Pakodas (fritters) - the fritters in India are made with gram flour and water .. all type of veggies are used .. but the most famous ones are onion, mixed veggies .. nothing spectacular given the fact we make them at home all the time as snacks but yeah they would definitely make a tasty snack for the locals :)
Raita - masterchef and other serials have made this name very popular .. "raita" is runny yogurt blended with spices with some veggies etc in it .. here it was with some grated veggies like carrots, cucumber, tomatoes etc ..
Tandoori Chicken - the chicken was moist and fresh .. could have had a bit more char in there .. but not bad at all
Butter Chicken Curry / Mutton (goat) Curry - Loved the mutton curry more than the chicken one, the butter chicken was just a bit too sweet for my liking.
Mutter (peas) Mushroom Curry - A very very famous vegetarian curry in India .. regularly made at home, hence not much excitement seeing it ..
Same went for the chickpeas curry (chole) and the palak (spinach) .. but taste wise they were all very good.
The best part, however, were the gulab jamuns (the round brown in sugar syrup) .. they looked well fed :P and yeah without a shadow of doubt they were the best gulab jamuns I would have had in the American Subconctinent.
All in all, quite a good choice whenever we are missing our very favourite curry or feel like eating a load full of Indian food.
And yeah, I will be back :P
