Have I told you that Indian food is probably my favorite food? I don’t eat it that often, but when I do, I feel like I’m awakening my taste buds. So the other week, S and I were craving some Indian food so we decided to try Mirch Masala. It’s located in the Capitol Hill district of Seattle, which is a popular district but not one we have spent much time in. Every time I go to the Hill I see restaurants that look so appealing though!
Here’s a look at what we had:
The butter chicken was pretty tasty. It wasn’t as creamy as I like but it was still pretty good. The chicken could have been a little bit more tender though.
I wasn’t the biggest fan of this dish, but S really liked it. I generally like curry, but this one didn’t taste a lot like the curry that I am familiar with. It was really thick as well. Too thick for my liking!
Saag Paneer is probably my favorite dish, one that I always order when I go for Indian. This one was pretty tasty, the cheese was really good. It was a little less creamy than I would have liked as well, but it was still good.
Under each of our entrees they had this little tea candle which I thought was so cleaver. It really did a good job of keeping our dishes warm throughout the meal. It’s surprising how much heat can come off these little candles.
We got a side of rice, plain naan and garlic naan to eat with our mains. I ordered the plain naan thinking that the garlic naan would be disappointing but it was actually really good! The garlic naan was very garlicky – just the way I like it!
Total Damage: $61.32 (including tax, not including tip)
Personal Rating: 2.75 out of 5 (OK)
Overall, this place was OK. I wouldn’t refuse to go back, but I would probably not suggest going here again. The service was just ok. They were not that attentive, but the server was nice enough. It was a Friday night and they had some take out orders they were dealing with, but the restaurant itself wasn’t that busy. The food was ok, but I have definitely had better Indian food in Seattle.
