Anyone eaten the Gujrati Vegetarian Thali Special at Simba Grill on Sundays
Very enjoyable. $10 gets you a thali consisting of some perfectly cooked plain basmati rice, two pieces of home made whole wheat roti, a deep fried crispy bread along with four vegetable curries, some pickled carrots and a helping of sweet pureed mango. The vegetables dishes yesterday were based on chickpeas, daal, okra and some mixed vegetables. Each dish had its own tasty sauce, was not too greasy and mildly spiced. They tasted freshly prepared and home-made. The initial servings were enough to satisfy a healthy appetite and we were offered more of anything we wanted. The additional amounts served were more than generous! Along with the check we received a small sachet of sweet and spicy seeds and herbs, instead of a mint.
My friend and I hadn't been to Simba before and we had a good look at the menu, which is also on-line. It is quite varied, with plentiful meat dishes.
We have previously enjoyed Ethiopian food at Dukem (fairly nearby) and found the food quality here similar, although different in style. There is also a similar friendly atmosphere, both quiet and unhurried. The owners at each establishment are welcoming and happy to describe their dishes .
I would certainly return to Simba and found this brunch a good and imho preferable alternative to an all-you-can eat Indian buffet.
