Absolutely hated this food! I ordered naan, chicken Korma, and samosa chaat. Let me preface this by saying I eat Indian food, a lot. I almost always order the same thing (korma) i.e. I know how it is supposed to taste.
Pros: food was 10 minutes early
The chick peas were well seasoned and spicy
Naan was too salty. In my experience, naan tastes similar to pita bread. So, no distinct flavor other than it has little flavor. This was way too salty and hard. Didn't tear or chew easily.
Chaat: new item. I know better next time (well, there won't be one at this place). It is literally a platter sized dish (re: Big AF) with ONE vegetable samosa and filled with cold chick peas.
Korma: EFFING HORRIBLE! I think these people just think "dumb Americans" aren't supposed to know what "authentic" Inidan food is supposed to taste like. The Korma looked unappealing and had the consistency of thickened chicken broth versus the creamy yogurt based look it should have. It was a gross green color instead of the yellow ( due to the use of turmeric and saffron) it was supposed to be. It tasted gross! Not like Indian food AT ALL!. It tasted like chicken broth after it is congealed and been reheated with some jelly like parts left over.
Anywho, I immediately called customer service and the woman (Rachelle/Rochelle) was nice. She empathized and told me she would call the restaurant to ask for a refund for me, which was appreciated. She called back and stated after a few calls and waiting, the restaurant was not willing to refund me because "that's just how they prepare it". So I lost my 30 bucks but was compensated with a coupon from GH. so, they wont replace my money, that's ok. They can just get a bad review on EVERY platform.
Moral of the story: the food and customer service at this place IS TERRIBLE!
