Indian Restaurant in Montclair New Jersey Jan 15, 2014
On a Friday evening decided to pay a visit to this indian restaurant on Bloomfield Ave. called Chatni Indian Restaurant located in Monclair New Jersey. Outside temperature was 4 degrees F ( -16 C) perfect evening for having something that makes you sweat. Small little restaurant at a time maximum 40-50 people can be served at the same time. We got a table close to the window, christmas lighting still glowing even though we are almost at the end of January, in a sense that added a little extra flavor to our moment. Got lucky got a parking spot right in front of the restaurant on Bloomfield Ave.

The little indian looking waitress suggested us few items from the menu like Chatni Special (house special) Dum Biryani and Mardas Chicken (cooked in light coconut milk herbs and spices) and we went for those in addition to some other dishes that we had planned for. The good thing about this restaurant is that they allow to bring your one bottle, and without wine our butter chicken or even spicy Biryani won’t taste the way we wanted them to taste. Place was over populated so our food made it to the table little later than we expected. As usual I got busy taking pictures before anyone could even touch them.

We also ordered Momo (Dumpling Indo Asian style) chicken - Nepali spices stuffed in flour wrap and steamed served with spicy sauce which was delicious. Restaurant stuff were very friendly so was the owner. We enjoyed the food and everyone in our table gave them a thumbs up for the taste. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. Average cost of main course was about $ 15.00 per plate so absolutely reasonable.

Posting few mouthwatering pictures for buddies, enjoy !
