Kokila's Kitchen in Cupertino closed
We went to Kokila's Kitchen on Sunday to try their awesome gujrati food and found the place is closed. Looks like it is gone for good. No sign on the door about what happened but when we peeked inside the tables and chairs were all gone, the kitchen cleaned out and the walls bare.
Am sad because I loved the place and we ate there at least once a month. When we were there late last month there was no sign that the restaurant planned to close down. There were plenty of diners and they were doing well.
Their website is still live so its rather puzzling about what led to their exit.
Claim on yelp is that it's been reincarnated in San Jose (1427 Branham Lane), but under new ownership. The reviews there are dismal, but it's not clear to me if the people there have been ordering the right things. (Though to be fair, in the old incarnation, the token Punjabi curry of the day was often the best thing, which is not faint praise given that the rest was very good.) Has anyone been by?
