Angeethi in Herndon - Report

This is a handsomely decorated Indian place (did it used to be a Korean restaurant?) that was clearly popular for Father's Day. The service is attentive and the food is handsomely served. I don't know if the special occasion produced the same kind of problems as Valentine's Day , but the experience was below average.

The papadam chat came out a too soggy, and the tandoori chicken on the bone was all dried out. I have never had a chicken thigh that dry.

I was not happy that two of the items we ordered , mater paneer and a vegetable balti, were identical in preparation. When they were served, one in a pan with a flame underneath (!) and one in a copper bucket, they looked exactly the same. I asked if the bucket was additional balti..... the server could have warned us that these selections were so similar.

Furthermore, the green pepper sauce served at the table was too mild and the tamarind sauce too sweet. To drink, the coconut lassi and the chai were both very good.

Nice place, but I missed the tandoori chicken at Punjab Dhaba in Falls Church, It's a dive, but the chicken comes out phenomenal every time.
