I've never gotten over Grand Sichuan folding up the tent at this location. At least Bawarchi offers some serious Southern Indian food in its stead.
Had the meat lunch ($10.00)-- a goat curry, some cubes of yesterday's tandoori chicken, some sugary gajar ka halwah, naan, bastmati rice, lentil soup and a piece of well seasoned chicken thigh buried in a bowl of biryani rice.
The tandoori chicken was OK, goat/mutton curry was a small piece of neck in an extraordinary, hot as hell, fragant, nuanced gravy. Lentil soup/sambar was likewise well prepared, The biriyani was pretty damn tasty but I don't like to eat that much carb at one sitting.
The clientele was mostly Southern Indians, and the food was at a chile level that would kill an average non chilehead Minnesotan. Service was relatively slack, but not annoyingly so.
Looking forward to exploring some of the chef's specials and southern stuff like dosas on the huge menu.The food is the real deal here. Not cheap, but authentic.
