Ambivalent About Anmol

We experienced a decidedly mixed bag on a recent visit to Anmol. We were pleased with the coconut naan ($3.75 and a special that day), and the mango chicken ($7.95). We also liked that we could order any dish with mild, medium, or hot spice levels. And the small bowl of cinnamon-laced rice pudding at the end of the meal was a nice touch (gratis).

But the décor is stale, there were too few shrimp in the shrimp curry for the $7.95 price tag, and while the $9.95 chicken masala dosa was huge, it was dry and somewhat flavorless.

With so few Indian restaurants on the North Shore, we hesitate to disparage this one, especially since it’s not bad, just average. Still, Passage to India is only one town further south, and every meal we’ve had there was much more enjoyable. We’re also curious to know if perhaps some of Anmol’s dishes are better than others. If you’ve enjoyed a meal there, please let us know about it in the comments.
