Indian Chef in International Food Warehouse-Lodi?

  • t

Has anyone eaten at the Indian Chef, the little Indian place in International Food Warehouse inside the National Wholesale Liquidators on Route 17 in Lodi?
Is is ok? I am nervous (a little) about a kind of 'fast' Indian place. What do they serve? Is it any good?

  1. What makes you nervous?

    1. Funny you should ask, got sick after eating there a few weeks back. No big deal, part of experimenting with different places but I definitely won't be going back.

      1. I haven't tried it yet. We love Indian food and this is on my short list of new Indian places to try after reading all the comments from other foodies.


        1. I regularly consume Indian food in the NY/NJ area and have eaten at Indian Chef a couple times. So far what I have had has been very tasty and well seasoned; each time I've had a one meat and one veg combo which comes with rice and a nan for around $7. It is not fancy (as one might expect from the location), with a steam table and plastic plates, but seemed clean enough. Next time I will be trying the dosas, which looked very good from what other customers had.

            hmm--quite mixed reviews.
            what makes me nervous? well, the fact that it looks like a place where the stuff 'sits' there all day and gets heated up and all that.
            we actually tried to go the day i posted, but it was closed when we got there at 8 p.m. :-(
            but with the person getting sick, i doubt we'll try it now.
