I went here with my fiancé, who found the place, because he’s not been as exposed to Gujurati food growing up, and we hadn’t found any good Gujurati places in Calgary. Hosts, Jai and Dimple, are wonderful people – the food they make is fresh and tastes like it would at home. We ordered the Thaali for an early dinner – it came with rice, 3 rotis, 2 sabjis, daal and paapad, with some pickle too. We were a bit slow at eating the rotis, so they waited until we were close to being done to bring us hot, fresh ones (instead of piling on a bunch at first which may have gotten cold). Food was wonderfully simple with the right amount of salt and spice.
One thing I would recommend is to order ahead of you want seriously authentic Gujurati food – we had amazing Dabeli and simple Dhoklas for appetizers. Unfortunately though, Jai and Dimple have to cater to an audience that isn’t quite familiar with real Gujurati food (they have to make the quintessential butter chicken to be able to sell their stuff), so the unless you order ahead you might not get things like Thepla, Gujurati daal (different from usual daal tadka or makhni), Khandvi and so on.
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves here – food was great, hosts were hospitable and price was extremely reasonable. We’re planning to order some authentic Gujju food this weekend and will definitely be going back often. I recommend people go here and try something that’s not butter chicken; the more we ask for authentic Gujurati, the more these guys can make them available to us without having to order ahead. I hope everyone who goes here likes it as much as we do!
