Spice Kraft Indian in NoVa - Report

Steve | Oct 1, 202007:52 PM    

Bombay Curry Company in Del Ray, and its sister restaurant, Delhi Club in Clarendon, have now both turned into Spice Kraft. They were owned by B. Bhasin who provided some of the best Indian food around in his Del Ray restaurant. Delhi Club still has the old name for a few more weeks.

Bombay Curry Company always served very well crafted meals that had a nice spice kick but never overwhelming. They didn't vary the heat, and they didn't need to.

Was it too much to hope that the owner simply went for a branding change? Perhaps I could still get those great Tandoori wings or onion bhaji. The wings were moist, hot, and crispy. Maybe they stayed the same?

Judging from what I tried, I doubt that Mr. Bhasin has anything to do with the new establishments. The wings were flabby and dull. The Lashooni cauliflower was a breaded, deep fried and salty mess. More like a Chinese dish. The menu has been mostly sanitized to provide easily recognizable Indian dishes. I think I'll stay away for now.
