I was reminded again that Nishi-Kasai has a plethora of amazing Indian restaurants, and the only regret I have is taking so long to try them all – finding the time for all the joys in life is still beyond me. So, with determination and a couple of hours to spare, I headed down to the Edogawa with my family in tow. We were heading for Delhi Dhaba, which offers a great lunchtime deal: an ‘all you can eat’ lunch, with paratha and basmati as part of the deal. I simply couldn’t wait. The only problem was time was running short, as is the case many times when you have a young kid with you. We finally got to Nishi-Kasai station around 2:15 – I’d called ahead and found out that they closed for lunch at 3pm. So, still a decent chance of a proper feast.
Thankfully, just before 3pm, Reka’s staff allowed us to come in and shelter from the swirling winds. Looking around the shop, it is a no bells and whistles establishment – welcoming but basic. I went straight for the detailed menu and ordered the biggest thing I could: Special set, which came with 4 curries (chicken, egg, bean, and potato and eggplant), chapatti, mixed biryani, and balfi. And a beer (necessary at that point). My dining partner went for a mixed biryani, which came with raita and salad. We added some Kanda bhajis to this too – thought it would make a nice starter.
