Weird experience – I came in here to eat some lunch and it was about 2:30. I knew the place did not have a menu and you ordered the daily offerings. The owner stared at me and asked me if I wanted a menu. When I said no, he seemed somewhat pleased. By the way, there was no one else in the restaurant. The food, like I said was kinda bland and expensive for what you get. When I paid, as I was leaving the owner said "Next time, don't come so late, cause we like to close by 3."
Just awful! – We ordered food from this place for my father-in-laws birthday party. We walked in Vatica and were called dogs! Someone that works at the place thought it was funny to call customers dogs wearing Georgia sweatshirts. Upon finding out my wife graduated from Georgia and went to law school, he called my wife a "liar, not a lawyer!!!!!!!" On top of the rude service, the food was terrible. Palaak Panner and Eggplant was awful. I am not saying that because of the rude service. $80 for two half trays! Insane! I would have walked out if we did not have so many people coming to the party.
In these tough economic times, why waste your money on bad food and really, really, rude service.
I give this place an F on every level!
Great food – Really good Indian food. We visits every month or so for dinner. It is a set menu, and it is a little different every time and always good. Our plate is always refilled and we never leave hungry. The location isnt the prettiest though I dont mind it. The price may seem high, but truly Indian food is always expensive and this is all you can eat of 5 to 6 different dishes. I like the variety. The owner always remembers us and is really funny. I recommend this place to anyone who wants great food and service and not concerned about the looks of the place.
Love/Hate Relationship – As a vegetarian, it's great to be able to go out for lunch and have something besides a green salad. As a fan of Indian food, I'm not terribly impressed by Vatica. In the year or so I've been a regular, I've gotten very bored with the rather bland, mushy food and lack of variety. Rice, soup, potato curry, dal, vegetable, bread and raita...it never changes. In addition, I've clearly been pegged as a two-thali customer. After the second refill I've literally continued to sit for an hour while conversing, and no additional refill has been offered. Since about 2 oz of each item is provided with each refill, and since this is often my main meal, it's really not worth the $12 to me. There are restaurants that I look forward to patronizing and restaurants that will do for an okay meal everyone can live with. This is definitely one of the latter.
I can Cook better than that for sure........... – I had gone there with 10 of my friends ...we were really hungry and were craving fr some traditional indian food ...Vatica was a real bad experience....the mananger /owner was really weird and sacrsatic ..clearly not intreasted or ready fr 10 ppl or i guess was ready to call of the day
FOOD was really bad...the only thing i liked was carrot pickel .No taste what so ever and the service wasnt that great either .
NEEDS real Improvement with FOOD , Decor , Attitute and service.
And PRICEY i wonder why..for what ..????????
NOT WORTH THE PRICE ....not even close
Absolutely bland unappetising preparations – I went a couple of days back. The place smells bad. The staff is funny. They lack social courtsies. The food is the biggest problem. We had a bill of 12 dollars per person. I am not ready to pay such a price for this quality of thali (predetermined menu) in newyork city or sfo also.
I am a yogic food cook in the US and appreciate simple food. This food is simply cooked but without any interest. It is a money minting exercise. I could have opened 50 such restaurants till date if it were for money. Ethics and pricing in this business play an important role. This guy does not believe in that.
Worst place for anyone to visit this place.lot of racial discrimination. – To who all visit this so called vegeterian indian restaurant, the place looks shabby and dull. The furnitures are broken.. The whole atmosphere is utter mess and not at all friendly. This is one of the poorest Indian restaurant where in you will find the worst of Indian food. The hospitality is also the worst, The female who comes to serve sabzi for second time, would purposely delay. And this was only for Indians. There were some other people who were given a different treatment, and the difference was easily noticeable as well.
Coming to the food aspect of it, there are no appetizers nor desserts as they advertise about it. The rotis didnt taste like the Indian. It almost tasted like the Mexican tortiloes (non-veg). It looked like the female was instructed not to serve and treat Indians properly. The owners are cunning and the place looks shabby and dull. There isnt anything that is good about this place. I just wonder, if they are not treating their own country people properly, what would they do with others and how are they stil surviving. Also I would not rate this restaurant, because it is not fit to be given a Single STAR ..If you want to imagine how worst a place can be, then you can visit this place
Horrible Ripoff!! – This place is a total ripoff! Stay away. This is not a real thali - no appetizers or desert or lassi. The trolley with the food comes very slowly on purpose to prevent people from eating too much. For $11 you can get much better food at any other buffet place
Worst experience..worst food..too expensive!! – Please do not go to this restaurant. My experience was horrible, they mentioned on website thali contains desserts and appetizer, but they told us it will be charged extra. For second servicing they purpose delay giving you food. We were waiting for 5 min. but no one came to serve papad, finally i finished without it. I think for $11 its horrible. I would prefer buffet in any Indian restaurant. Too bad..don't go here
Lovely food, great prices and very helpful staff – First time and we really loved everything about this place, good food (eat as much as you can at lunch, and we didnt understand why someone made a complaint they were still hungry., I dont quite understand why because there was an endless supply of food..)
the staff are very friendly, kind and sweet, especially the owner :)
easy parking, clean -
we'll be back!
