This will be interesting. A new Indian restaurant called "Glory of India" is opening up on Union Street in Easthampton. I've read that the owner(s) owned other restaurants in Lee and somewhere else in the Berkshires, but that they closed after 11 years. Makes me wonder why. Does anyone have any experience with the other restaurants? There was an article in the Gazette today and one thing that really turned me off was that they will have a "few" Italian dishes on the menu! What the heck is that all about?! I have my fingers crossed but my expectations are not very high.
At present, the only place I go for Indian food in the Valley is Pintu's. The two Indian places in N'hampton are very mediocre and after trying them a few times we finally just crossed them off our list altogether. Pintu's had some service issues initially but they seem to be running pretty smoothly now. As a matter of fact, the last few times we have been there, Pintu has been hosting, not cooking! The old crew left a lot to be desired, but this new crew of waitstaff is topnotch, and the food never disappoints me.
Glory of India is supposed to open in early April. Stay tuned!
