Kailash Parbat - first US branch of a Mumbai restaurant chain

pravit | May 3, 2014 11:48 AM

Tried this newly opened place in the "Curry Hill" area yesterday. It's the first US branch of a Mumbai-based chain. The menu is entirely vegetarian, with a page focused on street food dishes like pani puri, dahi puri, etc., main courses, and even Indo-Chinese food. The server informed us there is also a special menu for people who do not eat root vegetables.

We ordered the chaat platter (pictured), ragda pattice (chickpea curry with potato patties), and the dum biryani. I enjoyed the chaat platter; it's a fairly unique thing to find in NY Indian restaurants. I was a bit disappointed with the biryani, but mostly because I prefer meat biryani and didn't much like the carrots and cauliflower in this one - as far as vegetarian food goes it wasn't bad.

Overall I liked the food, but I think I could have picked better than the fairly generic items I ordered - they seem to specialize in Sindhi food, which I'm completely unfamiliar with. I noticed a lot of interesting sounding items on the menu that you can't normally find in NY Indian restaurants, including some that are only served at Sunday lunch. I'd definitely come back to try more. Their US website is under construction, but the menu on their Singapore branch is very similar, minus the European food section.
