THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Chopaati Restaurant Review

: South Indian, Gujarati and North Indian cuisine all get a measure of attention at Chopaati. The daily buffet features Gujarati thali, an all-you-can-eat deal at $6.95. Buffet offerings change daily, but look for anything that contains eggplant. You also may disregard the buffet entirely and order off the menu, or supplement the buffet with menu options. Try the paneer dishes, especially the "paneer khaas," which sauces the cheese with a spicy gravy. Fritters, ubiquitous in Indian vegetarian fare, are very good and although fried, are not greasy. Items with chickpeas and lentils are delicately seasoned but sambal, a vegetable soup, can be a bit spicy. Don't fail to pick up some of the raita (a yogurt-based condiment) to cool down anything that may hit too hot. Sweets are always included on the buffet. Carrot halwa, for instance, is shredded carrots cooked in milk and sugar, with nuts and raisins. No alcohol is served.
