Perfect! Thank you so much for the scoop! I'm dying to try chicken feet (yes really!)

Am craving it since trying it in Boston's Chinatown last month. Any suggestions?

New Indian restaurant "Baingan" coming to Shelton, Ct

We did try it again today (had a coupon) & am glad we did. Delish lentil soup, tandoori chicken, naan,etc. Also had the "goofy" kid. Could have done without his repartee but will definitely be back!

Thanks for the update! Shelton & Orange are both equal drives so it might be nice to try the outside patio this summer!

To be honest, I don't think their vibe would be attractive to families with young kids. I think they're going for couples and adult groups.

Went there about a month ago & thought it was just ok. The naan was excellent as was my curry goat, but prefer the samosas & chicken tikka at Coromandel. There was only one other diner besides my table, we sat for about 15 min before any of the staff that walked back and forth took our drink order so that definitely put me off. Maybe they've worked out the kinks by now & could be worth another try.

Had dinner there tonite (they opened 3 days ago) & would definitely return. The tired decor of Harborside & Savin Rock has been updated to a lighter, more contemporary look, but took advantage of the beautiful weather to enjoy dinner on the patio. It was practically empty, as I guess the word isn't out yet that they've opened. Dinner & service was excellent. The wait staff seemed genuinely interested in making sure we had what we needed quickly, and our waitress brought me a complimentary salad so I would have something to eat while my husband ate the one he ordered.Had bruschetta 3-ways (traditional, olive spread, & artichoke spread), seafood risotto, and seafood salad (which has been on the menu of the 2 prior restaurants & I love so much it's actually all I've ever ordered). This time, however, the shrimp were bigger & fresher, as was the other seafood in the dish. I wish them much success!
