    Yes. It's called Sohnis Restaurant. Former owner of Baba Ka Dhaba (of 17th SE fame). He took over Wattan Sweet House a while ago, and when the Anpurna space came up, he gobbled that up too. They share a kitchen.

    I only ate at the Wattan Sweet house side (it's the side open at lunch) - the food follows much of Baba's pre-ala carte (pre expansion) format - rotating, limited daily menu with a selection of things always available. The food is excellent, and extremely inexpensive. Very worthwhile. Great fresh Naan from the tandoor too. One of the hidden treasures in Calgary.

    Sohni's is open inconsistently, and it's slightly more upscale. Never seen it open for lunch. Prices are a bit higher, but it's nice inside.

        Nope - sorry! Though i should get around to it someday. Im a bit motivationally challenged lately.

        I found out that Sohni's is closed for the season...it'll reopen in the spring. Wattan is the only place open for the winter. FYI...
