This slightly pricey Indian place I haven’t tried before had some decent reviews. So we gave it a shot. And we were craving Indian.

We ordered:

  • Guthi Vonkaya Kura
  • Peshwari Chana (both comes with rice)
  • Raita

Ok. First off, the curries were VERY GOOD. Just look at the photo we took (above) Overall, we were pleased. The Kura is a stuffed Indian eggplant, there’s a kind of red paste they seem to marinate from the inside, then pan fried. These kind of details I love, gives so much unique flavor. The Chana dish was equally great. Proper spices, and deliciously spicy. I love that they made it proper hot!

The raita was the only disappointment. Extremely watered out, but I’m not a fan of raw white onions anyway…

Now, the prices are normal I suppose of South Charlotte. It did make me hesitate from eating here, until I open my takeaway bag and realized that two dishes was enough to feed 3, 4 ppl. Huge portions.

Will come here again to try the daily lunch buffet. They also had lots of South indian dishes, like Kerala Fish Curry. Made me nostalgic about Kerala and spending a few weeks there for my friend’s wedding, eating at Taste of Heaven veg hut three times a week. The only thing I dont like about kerala style food is the coconut and sweetish curries, but anyway. For another time.
