    Default East Indian Food

    Just curious where everybody goes and what's the best. I'm getting some tonight to eat at home and usually get it from Rajdoot, I like it but I'm wondering if there's some place better. Price isn't really a big deal, just looking for good butter chicken and Naan bread.

    I've been to the Tandoori Hut in Kensington. Pretty good food for reasonable prices. They also have a buffet lunch.

    MMMMM...Butter Chicken...

    Well, take it from a coconut...For those who dont know...thats brown on the outside and white on the inside...Moti Mahal is good...they are down on 17th Ave by the Chocolate Bar...

    For butter chicken, really an Indian mother cannot be beat, but...There are a few butter chicken places in town...one if the Samosa Garden right by the Peter Lougheed in the NE...as well as a new place, its kinda pricey for the portions, but GREAT food...its on 16th Ave right by the old WCB place...and on MacLeod Trail...the place that is painted like the Taj Mahal...MMMMM good food....Take a look at those places...Although, I am not too sure what would be open today so...OH OH OH and the Clay Oven...

    And a lil secret from me to you...Butter Chicken...is really easy to make...it kinda stinks up your home...But really easy nonetheless...and as for Naan you can pick that up and any east indian gocer and cook that shiznit up...

    But my neighbours are out of town...

    Yeah, we've made butter chicken before but my moms not doin well and I'm lazy, and you can even get Naan bread at Safeway, but it sucks.

    I know Rajdoot opens at 5 cuz I called there earlier, I'll check out the other places, thanks.

    I really like Glory Of India on 4th street across from ceasers, they're currently my favorite Butter Chicken. I like Namskar on 16th ave, they're pretty tasty too.

    For great take out in the northwest hit up Curry n' Hurry at the top of 14th street. They're another of my favorites but it's not an eat-in place. If you go there, tell them Kevin and Rekha sent you!!

    I can vouch for Taj Mahal - I haven't been to many Indian restaurants here in Calgary - Taj Mahal really is the only one. I guess its so good, I haven't bothered looking for another. Damn now I'm craving some!!

    hehe.. a friend of mine was a restaraunt inspector for the government and he said whatever you do, never, ever eat at the Taj Mahal! He wouldn't elaborate but he said the restaraunt is very un-sanitary. I've avoided the place ever since!

    Its a curried chicken...with a base of cream, and believe it or not whipped cream...you eat it with Naan, or "flatbread" or rice..I LOVE it with rice...


    And as for Naan...just pick some up from a E.I. grocer and you get the good shit...


    And I am craving some too...I am gonna ask mommy to make some now...

    Seemed clean enough to me. Ignorance is bliss I guess. If he thought it was so horrible, and he's a restaurant inspector, why didn't he shut it down?

    I believe they did at one point but I could be wrong. He had no reason to lie about it, so I trust him.

    I'm just really skeptical about things. I enjoy going there, so I'd go there again, but I'm open to trying new places. I went there mainly because I lived at Glenmore and MacLeod and it was close by - now that I'm downtown everything is close by.

    Butter chicken is pretty pimp. A friend's mom makes THE best butter chicken I've ever tasted in my life. It's literally to die for.

    Moti Mahal is pretty good for butter chicken as well. Definetly a good place to check out.
