Choosing the Right Indian Restaurant
Choosing the right Indian restaurant – in any country – can be a daunting task, especially with the variety of Indian restaurants serving all sorts of food (from restaurants that serve generic Indian food to restaurants that only serve vegetarian Mangalorean food).
Certain factors do come into play while choosing where to dine; like location, time of day, other reviews, food offered on the menu, and so on.
Since Indian restaurants are increasingly becoming commonplace, choosing the perfect Indian restaurant based on their location is a smart tip – noting where the restaurant is placed indicates what kind of restaurant it is – if it’s located above a grocery store or is a small establishment, you can know that this restaurant is family-owned, and the food is bound to be spicier and more flavourful. Family-owned restaurants are always preferred to commercial chains, because the quality and consistency of the food is exponentially better in mom-and-pop restaurants, where the chefs care.
Going to a restaurant also depends on the time of day and week you go – going during the weekend inevitably means that there will be a slight rush, no matter where you go. If you wish to enjoy your dining experience, going to the restaurant during the weekday will be better, because it’ll be relatively quieter and calmer.
Listening to recommendations and other reviews (or even looking up reviews online) can only help you – reviews by other customers evaluate the food, location, ambience, service, and other things that can make or break a restaurant.
The kind of food offered on the menu also matters. Depending on what kind of food you want to eat (vegetarian or non-vegetarian could be one distinction), you should choose a specific restaurant (a restaurant that serves food from Kerala would be preferable to vegetarians, for example). Since most Indian restaurants tend to serve food that is from specific parts of India, you could try multiple restaurants, which specialize in a specific menu from a specific location. Most Indian restaurants tend to serve North Indian food; but there are establishments that now serve food from other parts of the country.
