The first thing you notice when you walk into mirch masala is that upwards of half the people eating there are actually Indian. This is perhaps the most telling sign, but really the food does speak for itself.
I've been to Mirch Masala a number of times, and I have never eaten a bad dish. I generally get the buffet, and eat twice as much as I normally would, but the food really is that good.
The naan is some of the best I've ever had--it's light, fluffy ans just a little salty from the butter.
The curries are rich and complex in flavor, and the goat in particular is divine.
The dal is creamy and full of strong lentil flavor(thank goodness).
Even the gulab jamin is fabulous.
Pros: The food and the price ]
Cons: You'll leave feeling fuller than you ever have before.
great indian food, but kinda pricey.
my boyfriend and I ate here today. we were going to go to udipi cafe which is in the same strip mall, but then we realized that it was vegetarian cuisine. we ordered the mixed tandoori grill which came with shrimp, chicken, and sheekh on a bed of onions. the flavors were wonderful! we also ordered the vegetable numaish which was tasty and spicy. my boyfriend had the garlic naan which was a little too oily, but it was good. we will definitely be back!
DO NOT EAT HERE! Things crawling on the plates!!!!.
Do not eat here. This place was highly recommended by several of our family members. My family and I went during the lunch buffet. When we got our plates, there were two black things crawling (I'd mention what the things are, but CitySearch won't let me type that word in my review) on the area next to the plates on the buffet. When we told the waiter, he just looked at us and acted like it was no big deal. I can understand if he possibly didn't understand what we were saying, but when he clearly saw the things crawling and still didn't react, we just walked out. I cannot believe this place. I will never eat here and I hope the proper authorities pays them a nice visit.
Terrible waitstaff was curt and slow. The food took forever, and was terrible. He suggested mild, but brought out an extremely spicy dish. Only the Naan was good. Price was unreasonable for such poor food.
I was recommended this place by some Indian friends of mine. They were right. Awsome food, great value for money (after several beers, apps and tip, only $25 a head), and it is the only authentic place in town. Don't be scared of the menu, just ask lots of questions, we did.
