Just heard about this site and thought it'd be fun to register and join y'all.
My husband decided that we would drive down Shaw Ave. in Fresno on our way home last night and do something new... pick a random restaurant that we'd never been to.
We chose one that we had never seen before called "North India - Bar & Grill."
Wow!! The nicest and cleanest Indian Restaurant that we've been to. The food was fantastic! The owner came out after our meal. We chatted with him for a few minutes and found out that he was a restaurant owner in San Francisco for some years, who did not want to sell it, but after commuting for 6 years finally sold what sounded like his beloved restaurant there. It is obvious that he has sunk a great deal of money into this Fresno restaurant. It is a building that has been gutted, apparently, and completely remodeled from "head-to-toe." Beautiful detail and lovely atmosphere! From what we understand he is world-renowned and has lived in many parts of the world.
We ordered the Curry Mutton (my favorite of all - absolutely FANTASTIC!!), Bhindi Masala (delicious!), Veg. Rice Biryani (good, but didn't love the mint in the rice), and of course Garlic Naan (Very Good). For dessert we ordered Creme Brulee which was Indian style served in this fantastic copper and brass dish. It was not as firm as some I've had and had quite a bit more yolks I assume as it was quite a bit more yellow (Delicious!).
We are thrilled to have found a new Indian restaurant that we know we'll be able to count on being clean, professional and fresh, wonderful food!
We will frequent this restaurant without a doubt!
If anyone else would like to give it a try, they are located on the South side of Shaw Ave. between Villa Ave. and Minnewawa Ave.
Hope that you enjoy it as much as we did!
