Not a Quality foods – Me and my family couldn't digest this food and suffered whole night with bad feeling
Poor quality ingredients. Gone downhill. – After having been disappointed one too many times, I decided to take Chaat Cafe off of my list of casual restaurants to go to. The first time I tried Chaat Cafe, it was good and I was happy to have an indian restaurant nearby to go to. But over the last year, I have not had a good meal at Chaat. I kept hoping that I just had bad luck a few times with the food, but I'll no longer go there. The ingredients are poor. The Fremont restaurant makes their food way too spicy to even enjoy. Fatty questionable chicken meat in their wraps. Naan is always chewy, not soft. They've really gone downhill!! I don't understand why people still rave about this place. On top of that, the service is bad, their utensils/plates never seem clean enough, and atmosphere is poor.
Long time favorite – I have been bringing my family here since we moved to fremont 3 years ago and the food and service have remained excellent. Though the outside staff isn't the friendliest, they are fast and the food just can't be beat. Each curry has a nice distinct flavor, not like a lot of places that use the same sauce and just add ingredients and change the name of the dish. And their is no buffet so the food always tastes fresh. Very hectic in the late evening, but still a good casual place for families.
Simply the best. – I was a little weary of trying an Indian chain restaurant, but the reviews on citysearch convinced me to give it a try and boy am I glad I did! This is the best of the locationsthat I've tried, there are nine in all. You can always feel comfortable eating at an Indian restaurant so full of indian people.
Good Indian food – Fun, fast, atmosphere for a quick lunch or casual dinner. The naan is the best ever, crispy on the outside and soft and chewy inside, and the curries are full of flavor. Plenty of veg or non-veg options.
A true indian experience! – We tried the Chaat Cafe in San Ramon and were very turned off by the service and food, but at the advice of some indian co-workers, who claimed Chaat Cafe in Fremont is the closet thing to a real Indian restaurant in the staes, I tried out Chaat cafe in Fremont for dinner last friday night at it was quite an experience. The staff ws very very knowledgable, not the best at english, yet they helped us order a great meal. We also appreciated that they did not take advantage of our naivity and make us over order as other restaurants have done. The food itself was nothing less than spectacular, hot fresh chicken stuffed naan, the best samosas in town and a couple of delicious curries served on colorful flatware by hustling and bustling servers that were working a room packed with peope of all backgrounds.
Hands down the best! – I've been to tens of of Indian restaurants in the fremont area and Chaat Cafe is hands down the best! The don't have a buffet like most places, everything is cooked fresh and the portions are adequate though not huge. The Chicken tikka can be overcooked at times, but that seems to be standard at indian restaurants, but the lemony flavor here is unbeatable. The naans are the highlight of the menu, whether stuffed with spicy lamb or basil chicken, or wrapped with tandoori meat. The curries are also delicious, not too oily and well spiced so you can actually enjoy the meal. Don't miss thios spot!
A nice find – Fremont has a huge Indian-american population and chaat cafe demonstartes this fact. At times the place overflows with customers. But the service is quick and the food is well worth the chaos. The restaurant is relatively clean and service has gotten much better in the last 3 months or so. They share an outdoor patio with starbucks, which is a great place to graze with the chess players and coffee drinkers during the warm summer nights.
Little India – This place is fabulous. Go on a friday or saturday evening and you may think your in Delhi. The place has a cool modern vibe with authentic flavors, and it is packed with Indian-Americans chowin down on some great, spicy, Indian food. The wait staff doesn't speak great english, but the prices are reasonable and the food is wonderful. The Samosa's are great as are any of the stuffed breads, and the wraps are great especially if you have kids who fuss over anything ethnic. This is the best Indian spot I've found yet.
Best Indian food in the bay Area – Fremont Chaat Cafe really is like little india. There are a lot of restaurants with similar menus but none can match the food and atmosphere at this place, even the other chaat cafes aren't as good. It's in a busy shopping center between starbucks and noahs bagels and it is pretty crowded all day everyday... and for good reason. Top dishes are butter chicken, fish pakoras and choley bhature.
