Gujarati food, really! This is probably the most neglected Indian restaurant around, and you don’t even have to go to the suburbs. Everything here tastes real. Do you know that kind of Indian place where the spices taste a little grainy because they haven’t been ground fully to a smooth blend? That is this place. Recommended, and badly needed as well.
