Inexpensive Indian/Pakistani Food in Tempe

There's one thing about Indian restaurants: they offer (sometimes enormous) all-you-can-eat buffets at lunch (including all the bread and rice you can stuff down your gullet), but when it comes to dinner, out come the hefty prices, the micro portions that can barely fill a thimble, and the extra add-on expenditures (that can really add up) for, say, a lowly piece of bread or a grain or two of rice. But you won't find that practice at Copper Kettle Express.

Here, they don't have a buffet, but what they do have is delicious and dirt cheap Indian and Pakistani food, along with a fancy decor. And Copper Kettle has many the same traditional foods that you'll find at most Indian restaurants around town.

Veg Entrees include:
Vegetarian Balti (veggies and your choice of cauliflower, okra, or eggplant)
Sindhi Bryani (Veggies with saffron and spices)
Palak Paneer (chopped spinach green with Paneer cheese)
Dal-Lentil (split lentils with herbs and spices)
Karee Pakora (yogurt sauce and vegetable pakora)
Kabli Chana (chick peas and potatoes cooked in butter)
Aloo-Matar (potatoes sauteed with green peas or spinach)
Aloo Palak (potatoes sautéed with spinach and seasoned with house spices)
Kabli Chana (chick peas and potatoes with tamarind and coriander)
Mix Vegetable Curry (variety of seasonal vegetables cooked together in a gravy)

Good Pakistani and Indian food.
Owner of the place is a hard working gal, running a good kitchen. Wait times can be a tad long during rush spots but the wait is worth it.
Seating is fair. Be prepared to put up with mindless nonsense of Indian Zee TV while you eat.
Have a serious problem with their host. The gal there does not try to hide the fact that she doesn't want to be there. Seems like she's stuck there because of immigration sponsorship or something. Will not answer to greetings or anything. If you can ignore her you'll probably enjoy the well cooked food. If friendly service is also important to you, take your company somewhere else.
Also tried their 2nd location. Was seriously turned off by the sick waiter who coughed right onto us while taking the order and incessantly coughed all around the restaurant the entire time we were there. Almost walked out of there without eating.
