Dhaba Indian Cuisine is a new restaurant in Omaha, NE (opened in September 2009) that recently had a glowing review in the local newspaper, Omaha World Herald:
"I've read that dhabas are the diners of India: roadside eateries that provide tasty and affordable local fare. But the Dhaba near 120th and Blondo Streets certainly does not resemble a truck stop.
The food is a similar hybrid of family-style and fancy: fried, sautéed, stewed and tandoor-baked dishes with freshly ground spices and prettily carved garnishes, generally served in sharable portions in shiny copper-bottomed vessels.
The buffet changes daily but typically includes fresh naan (the puffed and blistered bread, baked on the inside walls of a cylindrical tandoor oven), basmati rice, a mix of vegetarian and meat dishes, some off-menu specials, an appetizer, a dessert, some fresh vegetables for salad and a few sauces."
The newspaper food columnist was extremely impressed (you have to check the full article below to get the feel of it) but strangely some of the reviews listed on Google Maps were considerably less generous.
