Yet another industrial-grade, oily North Indian restaurant. How many of these are there in the Twin Cities?
I came for lunch with some colleagues and was forced to make-do at the standard buffet. At least some Indian joints let you order off the menu if you don't want the buffet, but Surabhi doesn't. All I wanted was a dosa, but instead had to settle on chewy papadadum, and a grease-heavy chana (chickpea) dish with crappy white rice. The rest of the veg. options in the buffet were loaded with cream or yogurt.
I didn't appreciate having to ask about which dishes were vegan versus vegetarian. If you want Indian or Indian-style food, go to The Himalayan, The Vegetarian, Nala Pak or Namaste Cafe. They label what's vegan and what's not, and the quality of their food is much higher.
