Delcious, healthy Indian food at its best! – I love this place. I have been going here for years. Growing up in an Indian family, I know what good Indian food is and isn't. Unfortunately most Indian restaurants serve greasy, salty and often old food. I can honestly say that eating Chandni's food is like being treated to great home-cooked Indian food. The dishes are gentle on the stomach, clean and fresh, and can be made spicier or even vegan if you like. The restaurant is run by a really nice family which truly takes pride in what they serve and treats everyone kindly. You can see that serving people healthy, vegetarian food is not merey a business to them but also a calling. The other really unique thing about Chandni is the atmosphere--which is calm and cozy. They play spiritual mantras and/or peaceful Indian musical ragas which create a very serene atmosphere in which to dine. They have these great, large booths, which are cushiony and comfortable and you can just sit and drink chai in a nice, unhurried way. In fact, none of the staff will ever hurry you out or exhibit any rude behavior to you--instead everything is mellow, unrushed, and nurturing--just as a great dining experience should be!
Prices are very affordable too. Lunch buffet is only $7 and change! What a deal!!
After getting sick at many other Indian restaurants, I am happy to say Chandni is my home away from home.
