I was shocked by a meal a couple of days ago at Diwan Curry House, the hapless offshoot of the now fallen Jackson Diner. The food was absolutely horrible in nearly every aspect. The dishes were swerved from their Indian counterparts, maybe to try to attract Upper West Siders, with most things merely salty, dull tasting, and unappealing. The "crab chili fry" was totally smelly and old despite its interesting description, the chicken tikka coated with some kind of weird salt crust, the lamb kurma flavorlessly salty and creamy, and worst of all was a chicken vindaloo that tasted like bad Italian cooking.

What gives?
