Consensus as to best Indian restaurant in Waltham?

  • k

Going there tonite for dinner. Husband is a fan of New Mother India as he's been going there since his Brandeis days (he doesn't like change!). I've found them a bit pricey. There is one I like on Moody which has a number of South Indian selections, the name escapes me now. But, is there a Chow consensus as to the one with the best food?

  1. I have to go with New Mother India. I really noticed that the dishes are made with care and somehow they seem just a tad better than at the other Indian restaurants in Waltham. The flavors seem brighter. We were there recently and noticed that the potatoes in the samosas are cubed, not just mushed up, and the mango lassi really tasted like mango, not just sweet. We try other Indian restaurants in Waltham, but always measure them against New Mother India.

    1. re: sushimom

      I concur that New Mother India is still the best in Waltham. My husband and I had our first date there in 1996 -- and we still go back to celebrate. It still feels like a family owned restaurant -- great food, honest prices.

    2. Appreciate your opinion, sushimom. As it happened, we did go to New Mother India and husband felt quite vindicated that his choice was seconded by a Chowhounder!!
