Chaat Cafe Los Gatos

They are springing up everywhere. The one in Los Gatos is a largish airy room done in soothing yellow overtones. You order at the counter from a wall mounted menu that is divided into 4 main catagories: Chaat and Appetizers, TandooriWraps, Curries and Stuffed Naans.

The vegetable samosas were a bit too doughy but the filling was greaselss and flavorful. The pari chaat was great: various vege flotsam suspended in a yummy yogurt swirl served with chutney.

The entrees were all
very tasty..not out of this world exotic but solid fast food doled out in generous portions. We sampled the Chicken tikka (very well done with a crisp coating), ground lamb wrap (a little too much meat), chicken tikka Masala (a respectful rendition) and the
chicken plate (rather blah). The naan has a low grease quotient but is quite thick in a pizza crust kind of way.
Overall a great place for take out.
