Indian cuisines has come a long way in recent years. Many years ago, you were lucky to find a decent restaurant, and when you did, it probably was not from a venue that would be considered upscale by any means. Those who wanted award-winning food typically went to Italian or seafood restaurants or premium steakhouses. Today, haute Indian cuisine has become the hottest trend. Although it is not available everywhere, there are many cities that boast several of these mouthwatering restaurants; Fremont, California happens to be one of them. If you have never tried Indian food, you really are missing out. If you are thinking of the movie Along Came Polly and assume that the spices will be overwhelming, rest-assured that this is not always the case.
When a restaurant has nearly 700 Yelp reviews, you really can’t pass up the opportunity to try it. Shalimar Restaurant is definitely a favorite pick for haute Indian cuisine in Fremont. The curry dishes are amazing, and when they list garlic as an ingredient, they will know how to use it. The tikka masala is considered a must-try dish, and while you wait for your food you can enjoy free chai tea and a plate of seasoned raw onions. This restaurant only takes cash so be prepared. You can also place an order with them right online.
The great thing about Chaat Bhavan is that they offer strictly vegetarian dishes. Many other Indian restaurants focus on meat as a main ingredient with heavy cream-infused sauces, so the food here is definitely a breath of fresh air, and a little lighter on your stomach. The portions are plentiful and they do not go heavy on the spices unless you request it. So, if you are one who can’t eat Indian food because of the spices, you should give this place a try. The ambiance is nothing to get excited about and the service can be shaky at best, but the food is well worth it.
Pizza and Curry
Combing Indian cuisine with pizza is nothing short of genius. When you can have paneer, chicken tikka and a variety of other dishes made with fresh ingredients and placed on a perfectly seasoned pizza, you really can’t go wrong. You can order takeout online, and they even offer delivery. The restaurant is closed on Tuesday.
If you don’t mind traveling just outside of Fremont to Union City, Curry King is a recommended pick. You get complementary tea while you wait for your meal that is actually cooked with milk; the way it should be made at all Indian restaurants. Plus, they make the most amazing homemade ice-cream for desserts, which is also free with your meal! The lamb vindaloo, garlic naan and paneer tikka masala are consistently delicious. It doesn’t matter how many times you order them, these dishes will always be perfect. The service here is outstanding and the atmosphere is friendly; two elements that are often lacking in many restaurants today. Curry King is well worth the few extra miles traveled out of the city to get there.
