After having developed voracious appetites attending an AKC dog show at the fairgrounds several miles away, I googled the best restaurant list for WPB. This restaurant popped onto the radar screen with its rave reviews. And it was within a short driving distance. Very serendipitous since we love Indian food.
The storefront isn't much. Nothing to get excited about. All the action is indoors. The large dining area is class personified, with an Indian theme. Artwork gracing the walls -- metal sculptures, wooden carvings, a painting. A flat screen TV in a corner with an Indian program, the sound muted. Pleasant Indian background music. Tables covered with not one but two tablecloths, red offset above white. Artsy ceiling tiles. A waitstaff at the ready.
We took our seats at a table that allowed us to surveill the entire interesting scene. We quickly opted for the luncheon buffet, already set up. One large container held chunks of chicken -- red, white, green -- with varying degrees of flavors and spiciness. I used the tongs there to place a piece of each on my plate. Then down the line, past containers of chutneys and vegetable dishes and rice mixtures and chicken entrées. I scooped liberally. My wife followed, doing the same.
The waitstaff brought a basket of freshly baked naan bread to our table. Then another type of bread, thin and crisp. Our water glasses were kept filled as we dined -- no, gorged -- like royalty. The waitstaff was ever attentive without being in our faces. And the food, all of it, was simply delicious. So much so that we made another trip to the buffet line.
And still we were not done, unrepentant gourmands that we are. Back again, this time to the desert table for rice pudding and gajar halwa, a tasty combination of carrots, milk, nuts, raisins, cardamon. Now we were done. Sigh.
