My husband keeps wanted to go to Kanna Peena on Solano Ave. in Berkeley. I've never been impressed. I agreed tonight to give it another try.
Again, disappointed. Potato tikko appetizer tasteless and textureless. Indian tomato soup didn't come together. Papadam good. Tandoori mint chicken good--nice texture and taste and color (that unearthly bright green). Lamb biryani muddy-tasting and textured. Tandoori vegetables may just have been a mistake in ordering--mushy, bland. Naan OK. Raita good.
I'm a fan of Shalimar across the bridge. Where in Berkeley/Oakland/El Cerrito can you get comparable Indian fare that sings?
