Clove Indian Cuisine in East Rutherford - food delivery report

buttertart | Aug 22, 201108:23 AM     9

We had food delivered from Clove on Saturday night (minimum order for delivery $35). It was OK but no hell:
- meat samosas were tasty enough although the keema was very mildly seasoned) and not greasy
- poori and naan both fine
- chilli chicken seemed like an Indian Chinese dish (variation on General Tso's), husband liked it
- seekh kebab - expected lamb, this seemed more like ground chicken, nicely spiced but quite dry
- lamb vindaloo - terrible, the sauce tasted like butter chicken sauce (which always reminds me of canned tomato soup) with some extra chili pepper chucked in, and the lamb was tough
- patiala pullao - very good, with browned onions, cashews, peas
- raita unexceptionable
The above (which came with enough plain rice for two small servings) arrived within 45 minutes, was hot, and cost $73.
Is there a better place that delivers to Rutherford?
