I have heard decidedly mixed things about Vatan. Is it
worth trying?

In the summer of 1991, I went to its predecessor,
Jhupdi, in Queens, two times. I had one of the best,
and then one of the worst meals of my life.

  1. I think Vatan is worth trying once for the experience.
    I've been there twice (three times if you count the
    time we showed up 15 minutes early for our reservation
    and waited almost an hour before giving up), and
    I don't think I'd go back again.

    1. I like Vatan a lot. It is extremely similar to its
      predecessor, Jhupdi; if you liked that you will
      probably like this and vice versa.
