Disclaimer: No one paid me to write this. Thought there are lots of Americans who dont get the right review to really taste and enjoy the local indian food. So here is my write up on the Indian Restaurants in Bentonville, AR - 72712. If things change and if i get time i will try to keep this article up to date.
Well i am quite a foody but still nothing when compared to few of my friends! Being an Indian and having had Indian food fr the past 25 years I can say i am quite an authority to rate the Indian Restaurants in Bentonville, AR 72712. Its true i havent tasted all the food varieties in India. Come on you got to accept thats fair, after all India is a huge country with vast population n culture which results in So many food varieties! To be frank the food you get served in the American Indian Restaurants, yes tats the right term, is limited and I have tasted 90% of them back in India.
There are couple of restaurants in Bentonville, AR - 72712 but none of them here is the best. Unfortunately thats a sad truth!
Aroma , the Pakistani Indian Cuisine is good for its Briyani , Chicken Kurma , Chicken Tikka , Samosa, Raita and its Bread. But it doesnt have a lot of great Ambience which you would expect for a nice evening date. Chutneys is descent. I prefer their Buffet over "Indian Orchard", another local restaurant. To me Indian Orchards food is not the same all the time. Some times its really great and other times dont even bother asking me about the stomach upset i had due to its uncooked meat!
Earlier Aroma had their Masala tea which is at its best when had after a spicy Briyani or Indian food in general. Chutneys has their flavor of "Indian Tea" for their Lunch Buffet. One thing which annoys me with Chutneys is though they might let you in any time before closing time they dont cook if the buffet items gets over. It holds good even for a simple item like "Upma" or a "Tea". Which is really pathetic. I have been visiting them for more than a year and they havnt done anything to make things attractive to the customers, well unfortunately thats a typical indian retaurants business model. :(
But Both Chutneys and Indian Orchard are good in their A la carte. The Weekend buffet is hell of a costlier in Indian Orchard but at times you get really nice Dosa, Bhel Puri and other special items. Since they are pretty inconsistent i really dont feel like betting my 14 bucks. Wait did i say they charge for the Soda on top of the whooping 14 bucks buffet in Indian Orchard. Chutneys is pretty descent when it comes to their pricing and quality of the food. So i have to rate them 6.5/10. Due to inconsistency Indian Orchard really gets just a 5/10. Aroma for their quality and taste of food even with out a great ambience gets 7.5/10.
Well last i heard there is a new player in the town and its "Taj Indian Cuisine". Dont get tricked by its naming, its not part of the chain "Taj Restaurants". Its still in its nascent stages and the food is not tat great. I have not been there as the reviews from friends are not up to the mark. Wait did i say it resembles so much similar to Chutneys for the obvious reasons. Since i havent had food myself i will refrain from rating it.
well i might at times say more on my tweets @ioWint
