- Freshness of Food
Flavor of India - 87th and Quivira. Overall: 93. Atmosphere: 90. It was a little intimidating walking in, because we were the only ones at the restarant. It seemed a little dark. Friendliness: 90. Once we got in, the staff made us feel welcome. The only reason I give an A- is because the guy at India Palace is super-nice. Freshness: 100. The food tastes totally fresh, the sauces are the right consistancy (see Ruchi entry). Spicyness: 95. Food is well seasoned and not too spicy. Desserts: 85. Rice pudding here was great, but not much variety. Price: 95. Same as India Palace.
Ruchi - College and Antioch. Overall: 88. Atmosphere: 85. Nice place, not quite as fancy as the other two. And super-crowded when busy (which is a good thing for the food). Friendliness: 85. Okay. Freshness: 85. Definitely nothing wrong with the food, but not as fresh as Flavor of India. The sauces, for me, were a little thin. Lots of variety, though. Spicyness: 85. A little too spicy. Desserts: 100. Wow! The cake is amazing, and they had little sugary pastries that were great too. No rice pudding though. Price: 90. A little bit more than the other two.
