Sometimes a detour can have an unexpected benefit. As we headed east on Central Avenue to the Nob Hill area, we discovered that the entire street is being repaved and we had to go on some side streets for a few blocks. We turned back north on Yale Boulevard to get back on Central and found Rasoi Indian Kitchen.
Looks can be deceiving. The building is rather innocuous on the outside, but step inside to find the interior magnificently decorated with rich paprika-colored walls and hanging panels of gauzy fabric reminiscent of the colors of the spices of India.
Given my choice of ethnic foods, I'll choose the flavors of India every time. I had the vegetarian thali combination dinner. Usually, I expect to receive smaller portions of a number of dishes, but these appeared to be full-size servings of two entrees, a large portion of jasmine rice, a pykora, raita, naan bread and a lovely mango custard. This was preceded by a bowl of soup, salad, and papadum. I have a healthy appetite, but it was too much even for me. Fortunately, they gave me a take-home box for the leftovers. All of it was absolutely delicious!
Thank goodness for detours.
