some (royal) india oasis news

babar ganesh | Aug 7, 2005 09:52 PM

as reported on the board several weeks ago, india oasis has changed hands. i went today for the first time since the change, and the food was still very good, but there were some changes.

first the name: it's now "royal india oasis". big deal.

second the waiters: decidedly less formal. the new owner himself took my order, and he was very much a business man. but it was sunday at 5 pm, so maybe the normal waiters had the day off?

third: they are revamping their menu, paring it down, etc. when i was in, the owner was talking to a guy he knew who was introduced to me as a chef he used to work with at the astoria-waldorf hotel -- he was apparently the consultant.
