What is deal with Breads of India?

Jag Singh | Nov 2, 2001 08:23 PM

I went to breads of India in Berkeley recently and I cannot figure out what all the fuss is about? The descriptions on the menu made me want to order everything, but when the the decision was finally made and the food arrived I was dissapointed. The chicken curry had no authenticity (which explains the lack of Indian patrons), is it an attempt at fusion? Furthermore, for a restaurant calling itself breads of india the naan was not that good. And the 150 types of naan is absurd, it's all really the same, sprinkling curry powder on a naan is not creative.

Why do people love this restaurant? Why do the critics give it such great reviews?

I love good Indian food, I frequent Chaat Cafe and Pakwan. But I just don't get what people see in Breads of India.
