Surprisingly good Indian food at the Burlington Mall...

Young Swank and I did some shopping this morning in Burlington and stopped for a quick lunch at the food court. I decided to risk it with Indian, and was delighted that I did. Gourmet India was terrific! Had chicken vindaloo, saag paneer, rice, samosa, and tamarind chutney. Big portion, under $10. Very spicy vindaloo. They have *tons* of choices (many varieties of naan, too!) and the food is a big step up from oily food court fare. Highly recommend it to any of you spring shoppers!!

  1. I don't know if they were related but there was a Gourmet India in the Food Court in DTX. Agree and I was sad to see them go.

    1. Haven't been there in ages, but for a long time, Gourmet India had the only decent food in that mall. It has since been joined as a respectable place to eat by Blue Stove, the fancy restaurant inside Nordstrom's, but it's sit-down and pretty pricey.

        I like the crepes at Appleseed in the food court, especially the Philadephia (thin sliced roast beef and cheese sauce). Not a traditional crepe but pretty tasty. Also they have a deal where if you buy one regular crepe (with nutella or another simple filling) you get a second one for a dollar more. One for Mommy, one for you...

          Gourmet India is the only spot I'll visit in the food court, and I agree, I think it's quite good. But I think Blue Stove is one of the better restaurants in the Boston area, believe it or not, so when I'm unlucky enough to find myself at the mall without a giant Apple Store gift certificate, I normally have a few small bites there.

        2. They also have a location at the Prudential food court. Their pakora are no good at all, but everything else I've had there has been great.

            Also locations in Quincy Market and Natick Mall.

          2. They also have a Natick location. Service wasn't very friendly last time I went, but the food was quite good. I'll deal with the so-so service. I haven't been to the Burlington location for a couple of years, but always had good experiences. It always surprised me that I could get good naan in a mall food court.

            1. agreed. they also have south indian specials on the weekend

              1. Agreed, the Indian place in the B Mall food court has been very good as long as I remember going there. Best bet in the food court if you like Indian.

                1. I agree, that's an unexpected great spot in the food court. Heading there today btw :-)

                  1. I'll join the chorus and say that Gourmet India is my only choice in the Burlington Mall food court, whether for a full meal or a samosa and lassi pick-me-up.

                      Just had lunch there today with a co-worker who was born in India.. good meal. Not the best Indian I've ever had (that would be Amma in NYC), but a very good lunch..

                    2. My only question is... Who has the better burger there? Johnny Rocket's or Spike's in the food court?

                        In my opinion, JR's. I was not impressed with Spike's burgers, or their dogs.
