Indian-Chinese Fusion

The January/February 2008 issue of Saveur Magazine sings the praises of Indian-Chinese Fusion restaurants, printing a recipe for "Gobi-Manchurian," deep-fried cauliflower, stir fried with ginger and green chilies.

I've never seen an Indian-Chinese Fusion restaurant. Are there any here in the Bay Area? This would seem to be the perfect subject for Chowhound exploration: ethnic, inexpensive, and delicious. Any sightings?

  1. I believe Spice Hut in Newark serves Indian-Chinese food. The reviews are mixed.

    1. Check this topic ...

      Also I have since realized that Passage to India has a few Indo-chinese items on the menu. Not wildly great, but pretty reminiscent of that unique style ...

      1. The last time I was at Priya, on San Pablo Avenue in Berkeley, they had a very tasty Chicken Manchurian. It is in the "appetizers" section of the menu.

        1. I had an Indian-Chinese dish at the lunch buffet at Sultan on one of my visits...I wasn't too impressed though. But they might be another place to try.

          1. The only Indian Chinese I've had was at Masala Grill in Fremont a few years ago. A non descript, casual cafe in a huge strip mall. I wasn't impressed; problem is that Indo-Chinese tends to be deep fried & greasy dishes. I suppose if well made, they shouldn't be greasy:-) I have not tried Temptations but not having heard any rave reviews, haven't felt the urge to visit.
