Two new indian in Mountain View and Sunnyvale

bbulkow | Jul 8, 201510:09 AM     13

Zareen's, in the Shoreline parking lot, near the theater, near the Sport Page. Real small - like 6 tables. Very fresh tasting and healthy mom and pop. Not overly spicy. Very popular now, with a 4.5 Yelp review, but rather worth it. Lots of young people, healthier menu, likely worth the yelp acclaim for a change. Small portions, though.

Satkar, on ECR just "south" (east) of 85. There's a number of new places in this stretch, but easy freeway access. A more standard north indian menu, but the dish I had was well cooked and popped well. Again, a mom and pop, maybe 7 tables, and the tastes showed. more like home cooking than you tend to get at established restaurants. re: spice level: They ask you about spice level (you know how I feel about that), and I said VERY spicy, but most of the Indians said spicy. The Very Spicy was nearly inedible, in a good way.

In both places, service is not the forte. Amaturish. Long waits, unbussed tables, etc. I think the food's worth the un-restaurant-ish service. They advertise, and do, a lot of take-out and delivery.

The second Aachi Aapakadi is not that far further down ECR, and is recommended. Need to try Himalayan Kitchen and Madras Cafe.
