Good Golly Fish Molly (new Indian in Tampa)

The incredible dish was Fish Molly, the restaurant is called Kadai. It is where Mirch Masala used to be, across from University Mall on Fowler. Mirch Masala had excellent vegetarian, mostly South Indian food. Kadai has added meat dishes and a range of tastes that I haven't seen anywhere else in the area.

The ingredients in Fish Molly are fish (of course), coconut, green chilis, black cardamom, curry leaves and magic. The dish is from Kerala, and this might be my first experience with Keralan food. The taste is subtle and complex and the fish was moist and tender. We had a chicken dish that I can't remember the name of that was very good too, with a mango based sauce.

    Ooooh, good... I'll be passing by on Monday, maybe I'll pop in...

    I usually hit Angithi Indian Restaurant across from University Mall when I'm in the area, but I'll try this...
    Last time I tried The Jerk Hut Jamaican Restaurant right there--- it was decent...

      This place was terrible. I just don't know how to say it in a nice way. Just terrible food.

        I have to say, I went a second time and tried the buffet, and I was really disappointed after my first time there and ordering off the menu.

        So which is better at this point? Kadai or Angithi? I keep hearing that a new Indian restaurant will typically be good for about 6 months and then quality suffers- so I'm wondering if Kadai has fallen prey to this.
