I have mixed feelings about this place. They have the single best and most authentic Indian menu around, ranging from the Chicken 65 dosa to Kori gasi, namely chicken made in fresh coconut, red chilly, and curry leaves, plus a lot more in between. And none of it is bad. Yet somehow the dishes don’t quite taste right. With some superior execution this could be premier places on this list, but as it stands it is an interesting curiosity of unfulfilled potential. If I lived nearby I’d go all the time, but it’s not yet worth the trip.
