Indian Restaurant on Urbanspoon

I think it's funny that the name of this Indian food restaurant is Indian Restaurant. Makes you wonder if they just gave up on trying to agree on a name.

It's only been open since March, the dining room is new, fresh, nice, not a lot of character, but traditionally decorated, white table cloths, preset with cloth napkins.  I arrived for an early dinner today (Sunday) around 4pm and had the place entirely to myself; they seem to do more of a take-out business, although it's very pricey for take-out.

The staff was attentive without being annoying.  I sat in the restaurant for over two hours watching a streaming seminar on my phone. Was lucky enough to sit next to an outlet. No one seemed to mind or rush me with the check. Around 6pm two more guests arrived for dinner.

I had the Lamb Saag - tender lamb w/fresh spinach, coriander & other fragrant herbs: 3 Tines.
Entree price $13.95, but does not come w/ naan ( unleavened bread) that was an extra $2.50.  The dish was savory and moderately spicy, nothing to rave about, but certainly enjoyable, no complaints.

About This Blog

is about discovering what I find pleasing in screening & eating - in case you missed it, the name is a play on Tinseltown using the Tines of a Fork.

Feel free to send me info on a film or new restaurant you'd like me to highlight.

Will there ever be a cap on movie prices?

Will we one day pay $20 a pop?

Why don't we pay on a scale?

A crap movie like everything Adam Sandler has ever done should cost about $4.50.
Big action movies like"Lord of the Rings", "Iron Man," "Transformers" are worth $10.
Woody Allen movie or something like "Silver Linings Playbook" $6-$7.
A chick flick or light comedy $5.75 and most Indie Films $5.25.

You could even do it by seasons - all summer block busters from May to August - $10
Sept - November 15th $3.50 - $4
Back to $10 for Thanksgiving and Christmas etc...

Or you can do it by A Actors ($9 - $10), B Actors ($6 - $7) TV actors on the big screen ($3.50 - $4)

Surely I'm not the first person to realize this makes sense. Has it been voted on in the Motion Picture Industry and then vetoed? If so, why?
