RANG INDIAN BISTRO
One definition of ‘Experience’ is the instant realization of any impulse, whim or craving. By this standard, ‘Rang Indian Bistro ‘ restaurant owners Paramjit Singh and Sunil Yuruv like to say that it epitomizes experience – offering a different type of dining experience from the regular fare.
To describe it further, the restaurant with its intimate settings, contemporary architecture and elements of the earth kind of lighting plays out, a perfect metaphor of the elegance and grace of the service and experience it promises to offer each guest.
The restaurant is ideally located across to the Stoneham theatre and has ample parking. Barely one month since it opened, it has attracted attention for its varied menu, service and ambience. The owners have varied experience as software and banking professionals and yet have ventured into this new territory. Paramjit Singh’s family owns many area restaurants like the Monsoon Indian Bistro and Passage to India and Sunil Yuruva has the backing of a family specializing in South Indian cuisine.
To check it out, we sampled some its fare. The first offering of the evening was the Aaloo Tikki, which looked appetizing, was lightly crisp to the fork’s touch and tasted very fresh when eaten. The accompaniment to the main course was an assortment of bread, naan, rotis and parathas all delicately flavored with a hint of the ajwain spice. The Baigan bharta stood out for its subtle spice and fresh taste . All time favorites offered were Dal makhani and Navratan Korma, Lamb Korma and Tava chicken and a number of tandoori specialities. Seafood specialties rangd from fish curry, shrimp bhuna ,goan fish shrimp curry etc.The bar selections were varied with a few favorites from a unique chai martini, tequila sunrise a Blue Hawaii to name a few, not to mention the owners’ own assessment of the wines in the recommended list.
The restaurant which seats up to 50 people, also offers a takeout and catering menu. Allergies are taken seriously and orders can be prepared from mild to spicy hot. The restaurant has plans to rotate its menu with food festivals offering regional fare from all parts of India.
