Food Court in Waltham India Grocery

StriperGuy Dec 17, 2012 10:48 AM

First time tasting of 3 of their chicken dishes as well as their chick pea dish and the potato and spinach dish.

This is the place also rightly famed for their fried chicken.

Much overlap with the Kebab and Tandoor menu in fancier digs in the same building.

In particular the veggie dishes were as good as I've had in Boston.

The chicken 65 was excellent, and not shy about bringing the heat, and the butter chicken was yummy.

great for a grab and dash dinner. Would like to check out the kebabs and desserts in the other two stalls.

On further reflection this is up their with the best Indian food in Boston. Definitely worth checking out while stocking up on product (great selection and prices) and Indian groceries in the store above.

        I was soooooo confused until I realized you meant Salem Foods (http://salemfoods.com/), not the town.

        I believe it's the same kitchen as K&T, which is absolutely not worth sitting down in, but yeah, good flavors at the takeout version.

          The takeout station offers the same items as the K&T buffet each day. I usually do the buffet in order to have a variety of dishes.

          its the kebab and tandoor kitchen, is it not? i have tried a lot of places but keep coming back to their food.

          also you can pick up lime leaves, a pound of mustard seed dirt cheap, your pick of about 30 kinds of rice, mangos you have never heard of and malanga in the supermarket upstairs before you go home.

          win,win.

            Makes sense, I know the market folks above also own K&T, I have not eaten at the new K&T location but felt the food, amongst the best in Boston for Indian, WAS in fact worth sitting down for.

            The market is just plain amazing, and the go-to spot for good mangos in the late spring.

            It's an amazing deal with two sizes of containers. I think that the small vegetarian dishes are $3.99 & the small chicken ones are $4.99. Sometimes the chicken can be a little dry due to the warming trays, but for the flavors & the price, I'm not complaining.

            The kebabs are good too, but I always find myself at the counter that you went to or at the Chaat Station.
