Currying Favor

Posted By on Thu, Oct 30, 2008 at 6:54 PM


The latest entry in the Indian restaurant market, Amruth, is open where Kebab and Curry withered out in the Market Street Shopping Center. The month old restaurant utilizes the same red faux leather diner chairs and tables, but now the color has been toned down with tan tablecloths and curtains.

The food has also changed. Instead of the Anglicized, Brit-style curries of its predecessor, Amruth’s curries are deep and full of bite. The naan is fresh and soft, not chewy -- and the chai creamy and full of cardamom.

Lunch specials are simple but offer a good variety. They include an appetizer (pakora or samosa), rice, Naan, Gulabi Jaman (sweet balls in honey), and your choice of two dishes. Thursday’s choices included three veggie dishes: Thadoka Dal, Mix Vegetable Curry, and Chana Saag, and three chicken choices: Tandoori Chicken, Chicken Curry, and Chicken Tikka Masala. Choose from the veggie choices and the special is $5.48 plus tax; with one or two meat items, it’s $1 more. Chai runs $1.49. Other lunch offerings include the Chicken Biriyani ($6.48) and Vegetable Biriyani ($5.48).

Amruth Authentic Indian Cuisine is open seven days a week -- with lunch specials Monday-Thursday 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., a lunch buffet from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Friday through Sunday, and dinner service starting at 5 p.m. every night.
