My wife and I ate lunch at Mirch Masala on a dreary Sunday. It is hard to find as it is actually inside Cintoms Custard Shop. If you were not specifically looking for this Indian restaurant you would never find it. I had never heard of it, but when I asked Siri in my iPhone for Indian restaurants in Asheville, it was listed. Upon entering, we were tempted to turn around and leave. This is clearly an ice cream parlor with kid- oriented decor. It appears that the owner of the ice cream shop has allowed his friend to prepare Indian food in his litchen. That was a good decision my friends. To start, the Indian owner brought us some spicy Papadum, it was sublime. We ordered Samosas and they were spectacular, definitely the best in Asheville. The entrees were Chicken Tikka Masala and Chicken Bhoti. Both were outstanding. The Tikka is different than the norm, it was not tomato soupy, in fact it was almost like an Indian Jerk chicken. Both dishes were obviously made a la minute. The Basmati rice was just okay. If you are lookijg for good fod and nkt a dining experience, you must try this place. If you want the whole experience, the Mela is a better choice. This is all about the food.
