This past week we checked out Siddhartha’s Indian Kitchen, located on the corner of Commercial Drive & 5th avenue. We were here to preview their new dining package for VANEATS called SIDDsation, now on sale for just $18.
Like most of the VANEATS packages, this one has plenty of food for two people — or maybe one really hungry person. Created by head chef and owner Chef Siddhartha Choudhary, the SIDDsation package includes:
Two crispy potato cakes served with a blend of Delhi, tamarind, mango sauces then topped with pomegranate and cilantro.
Boneless chicken pieces cooked in Siddharthas exotic curry, accented with cashew nut and raisin gravy
Creamy Shahi sauce infused with fenu-greek leaves, cream, tomato marinade and a hint of coconut. Tossed with boneless marinated smoked chicken.
A sample size of fresh cucumber, onion, tomato & bell peppers served with chaat masala & chef special dressing
Our evening started off with some house made Traditional Indian Chai which is Indian Black tea with cream, cardamom, cinnamon, and cloves. It was not too spicy, and the perfect amount of sweetness.
This is the Aloo Tiki. These potato cakes might look small, but took at least 4 bites to eat. Two crispy potato cakes served with a blend of Delhi, tamarind, mango sauces then topped with pomegranate and cilantro. The pomegranate and mango elements were wonderful, and the crunch of the potato cake was lovely.
Below is the Chicken Korma and the Butter Chicken, which comes served with a side of rice. The Chicken Korma reminded us a bit of homemade curry. The Butter Chicken packed a great punch of flavor.
Both dishes were solid, but the Butter Chicken really stood out for us.
We couldn’t help ourselves, and ordered some Garlic Basil Naan bread to help us finish off the butter chicken sauce.
Siddhartha’s Garlic Basil Naan bread is perfectly buttered naan, with roasted garlic & basil. Crispy, soft, chewy… perfect. This was good naan. Thanks to Ariane for the recommendation — you should also go check out her Siddhartha’s experience here.
Siddhartha’s is a real gem on the Drive, and we’re glad we got to experience some of what they have to offer with this great package. The ambiance is warm and inviting, and the service was friendly and personable.
