We ate here on 1.5.13.
My wife ordered the Ambrosia Seafood Masala. It's supposed to be an Indian version od cioppino. My wife took a bite. Then another. Then one final bite and asked me to taste because something wasn't right with the dish. I spotted it right away. The "crab" was imitation crab.
We called over the waiter and I asked him what was in the masala. I asked him if there was imitation crab in the dish. He didn't speak English very well and went off to get someone who could speak with me.
Everyone was smiling like little boys who'd been caught doing something wrong. It was kind of funny in a way. We counted 16 pieces of imitation crab. I pointed out that we were in Monterrey, CA and there should be no trouble finding real crab.
Our waiter brought us a menu and we ordered more of what I had which was the Lamb Vindaloo. The Lamb Vindaloo was so yummy!
To the owner: What are you doing? Why are you making the Ambrosia Seafood Masala with imitation crab? Are you trying to make some profit gambling that people won't know what real crab tastes like? Well, you lost.
On the restaurant's side, they did not charge us for the Ambrosia Seafood Masala they we sent back. Good on you.
The Lamb Vindaloo was delicious. The rice was superb. The naan was excellent. The veggie platter was VERY good.
Finally, stick with what you do well. Drop the Seafood Masala. No one will notice.
I give you five stars for the lamb but give you one star for trying to trick me with imitation crab. That makes three stars. You'd have a higher rating if you dropped the seafood masala.
