At their best, this rapidly growing chain of mid-priced Indian restaurants can be very good. Inconsistency is a problem, and food that is vividly spiced on one visit can turn bland the next. Potato cakes with a spicy green chutney are terrific. - Eric Asimov (5/98)
Baluchi's Restaurant Review:
This Northern Indian restaurant offers the best meal value for your dollar (especially the half-price lunch) as well as deep-fried veggie pakoras, curried Malabar salmon in a mustard sauce, and savory samosas. Inlaid tables and embroidered fabric chairs lend a strikingly exotic air to the atmosphere. Other locations around the city.
