Atlanta’s new Indian restaurants

Chai Pani

Fathers, mothers and grandmothers still figure in the new wave of Indian restaurants showing up around metro Atlanta. But family tradition is a touchstone rather than a millstone, nowadays. And please don’t bring up those bad old memories of face-stuffing buffets set to wailing sitar soundtracks, or you just might elicit a bout of laughter mixed with embarrassment.

What you’ll find at Bhojanic in Buckhead and Chai Pani in Decatur are creative takes on Indian food that offer brighter, fresher flavors in varied portion sizes, all kinds of current beer, wine and cocktail options, and settings that are decidedly contemporary.

I tried Bhojanic a few years back when it first opened……YUK. never again. It was not even close to authentic Indian food from any of the regions I know.

I’ve eaten many times at the original Bhojanic, usually with friends who are from India and say this is exactly like “home cooking” to them. People are free to disagree, but given the very negative comment already on this site, I felt obliged to offer my opinion, which is a 180 from Tom’s. We love Bhojanic’s, and can’t wait to try the new Buckhead location.

And here we go again, taking a BLOG to the pay site. Where’s the guy with the little hat to explain why we morons that read the online paper will have to pay for blog content?

MyAJC is just another way to insure that the AJC will fade into obscurity even faster than they were already.

Countless blogs have gone this direction. Many of the elite blogs have failed with this philosophy.Once you get something for free, human nature will not allow you to pay for the same item. IE: Sports teams that give away free tickets hoping that the experince will translate into future ticket sales. IT NEVER HAPPENS!!!! People just wait till the next freebee comes along, reguardless of the positive experience at the game. This AJC decision is predictable but they are taking’ Coals to New Castle’!

Gluten-free fad diets have recently become popular. A 2012 study concluded “There is no evidence to suggest that following a gluten-free diet has any significant benefits in the general population. Indeed, there is some evidence to suggest that a gluten-free diet may adversely affect gut health in those without celiac disease or gluten sensitivity.’
