vatan indian thali

thanks
but based on the old Vatan , it was so good and interesting that everyone was impressed even serious meat eaters... . Is the food sort of so-so now or really flavorful?

free dip with the bread is great also ceviche and many appetizers mussels goat cheese and for dessert the Flan... thats what I remember from my last visit this time did the dinner special very reasonable but wouldnt do it again altho my friends said they loved the carne asada and the shriimp in coconut in red sauce that were that days special for me the salmon was fine but ordinary great place I loved the music one friend wanted to have earplugs..
