Complimentary app: pappadums with two chutneys at Vedas.
I joined a friend to review an East Bay Indian restaurant, and this is the food porn from that event. Vedas restaurant tries to come off as more than just your average Indian restaurant with their modern Indian decor and slightly modern food plating. For me, most dishes were either hit or miss. Check out my opinion and food porn after the click.
Potato and pea samosas with a tamarind dipping sauce at Vedas. These had a delicious dough, savory filling and a sweet and tangy sauce. I loved them and their presentation.
Chili chicken at Vedas restaurant. This dish was just okay...tasted more Asian than Indian in flavor.
A shrimp type curry appetizer at Vedas restaurant. This was okay, but the shrimp were a bit overcooked and rubbery. But I liked the presentation.
A bad photo of their channa masala. Usually my favorite dish, this one had almost no tomato in it. I didn't like this one at all.
The saag paneer was a bit better, and I liked the big chunks of paneer. Not the best dish in the world, but not the worst.
A salmon dish at Vedas. The fish was overcooked and didn't have much flavor, which was sad. I really wanted to like this one.
Garlic naan, which wasn't bad at all. The garlic helps.
Dessert at Vedas restaurant and my favorite dish of all: carrot halva.
I probably won’t be returning any time soon to Vedas restaurant.
