Chennai Kings now open in Mountain View

anyhow | Jul 24, 2014 06:53 AM

We had dinner last night and loved everything. Restaurant is open with "soft-run" menu that will soon expand. Tamarind soup, chicken 65, parotta with goat curry, biryani with chicken and spices, mango lassi. Beer and wine will be available soon.

I am a fan but not familiar with South Indian cuisine and culture -- await others' reviews. Greeting and service, including waiter describing and showing us photos of each dish, were great! Food was seasoned mild for us and our opinions were asked. We even got a quick lesson on cricket (shown on two TVs w/o audio). Go Dhoni!

Location has been Gelayo Gusto (loved their gelato and froyo), then a sandwich shop. Now, it is nicely decorated and happily busy. Try it.
