Former co-worker invited me out to check out an Indian spot he found via http://ponpare.jp/kanto/ . An amazing 2,815yen meal for 980yen... how can you go wrong?
Course begins with a 400yen beer
We actually arrived at 5:50pm (shop opens at 6pm) but when we left around 7 it was still empty. Think the hidden location in the back alleys of Ochanomizu may have been a reason.
Yogurt salad with a hint of curry seasoning.
Very juicy and tender Chicken Tikka with some spicy onions (sooo tasty) and a I think a rolled crispy Papad.
Sag Paneer Spinach and Cheese vegetable curry... had a very thick creamy texture and I didn't realize it had cheese inside, the texture was so similar to Chicken. (1,000yen)
Butter Chicken but not the usual butter/yellowy looking curry but there seemed to be a hint of tomato mixed into this... probably our favorite curry of the night. Had a nice spicy kick and deep tasty flavor. (1,100yen)
Meal closed with some Vanilla Ice Cream with Mango topping.
Indian restaurants are great for lunch as you can get a great dish of curry, drink and most spots have all you can eat Nan for around 1,000yen but dining can take you into a totally different price range that opens up so many other options in Tokyo. If you aren't on a budget and in the mood for Indian I have to hands down recommend Ganeshar Ghar where curry prices are less than most... plus service was friendly, great Indian music on the BGM and shop was very clean.
Shop: Ganeshar Ghar Ochanomizu Branch.
