“Not an Indian Restaurant”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2011

Passed this restaurant on many occasions, noting that it bills itself as "South Indian Dining". I assumed the food was prepared by a person from South India (as many other Indian restaurants in Tokyo are) but was surprised to find a single Japanese cook in the kitchen. (Or at least, this was the case when I visited). The four curries on offer were watered down to suit Japanese tastes. In fact, they tasted much like the Japanese"curry" that can be found all over Tokyo. The nan the came with the curry paled in comparison to the nan that can be had at places such as Samrat and Pondicherry. On a positive note, the ambiance of the restaurant was quite pleasant. A shame that the food disappointed!
