India House, Montrose, NY: Who needs liars?

Josh Mittleman | Feb 17, 2000 10:28 AM

After hearing favorable comments about India House, on Rt. 9A in Montrose, NY, my wife and I decided to try it again on Monday. We'd had a lousy meal there several years back, which ranged from bland, oily baingan bharta to dried-out ras malai.

Knowing that Valentine's Day can be a busy night, I called ahead and had the following conversation.

"Hello, India House."
"Hi! You're open tonight?"
"Yes, we are."
"Will you have any trouble seating two adults with a baby?"
"No problem."
"We'll be there in fifteen minutes".

And we were, to find the parking lot full to overflowing and a line of people waiting for tables.

I don't care if they have the best food in North America: I don't need restaurants that lie to me. To hell with them.
