  1. Devi is very good. Haven't had chicken there, though.

    1. I had dinner there in December 2004 and was not impressed. The usual Indian mush at higher prices is my verdict.

        Curious how you could call dishes such as Veal Brain and Liver Bruschettas, Manchurian Cauliflower, Crispy Okra, Jackfruit Biryaani "the usual Indian mush"?


      2. Indian mush? That's not a very attractive way to refer to the wonderful delicacy that is Indian food.

        Never been to Devi, so cant comment. Had a great meal as usual at Brick Lane last week though. Love their lamb madras.

          Sorry! What I meant was that much of the Indian food in New York is mush. You know, the same sauce mixed with different veggies or meat kind of stuff. Of course Indian food is not mush - just the stuff you get in half of New York's Indian restaurants

        2. I went over the weekend, We tried everything on the tasting menu. While I thought it was quite good, nothing was really amazing, and I don't think think it was worth the $60 / pp, and I probably won't be returning.

          1. yes, i've definietly had better indian at a heck of a lot cheaper.
