Best Chiken Tiki Masala on Ave. – I've been here a few times and really enjoy the place. The food is very good and really good price. The staff is reasonably friendly and efficient. The food came out very quickly both times I visited.
Two things to note if you're headed there for the first time;
-it's going to be really busy, so be prepared to wait. I recommend making reservations (if there are 4 or more of you) or going VERY early. The queue is a little crazy. Also note that making reservations doesn't mean you will avoid the wait entirely during peak times, it'll just speed things up a bit.
-no license, so come prepared if you want a drink. there's a convenient Chevron and Safeway on the walk from the Ave.
quqlity food – This is my third visit here .Their menu is pretty large -- a good selection of vegetarian, chicken, lamb and seafood dishes, tandoori stuff, breads.On my first visit the nan was not good but now its getting BIG AND BIG and i can say one of the best nans in town. i tried their okara masala it was so good that i take one lamd okra togo for my friend. I can say its the perfect place for indian food.
Perfecting the taste for your Pocket – The newest addition to a bunch of desi restaurant on the Ave in U-District of Settle is GARAM MASALA. You feel the heat of garam masala as you enter this restaurant. The vibrant golden mustardy colored interior mixed with the aroma of desi cooking is inviting. The huge menu board behind the counter with around 100 item will make you even happy when you see the prices. To top it all when you take a bite of your food you relies this is it… This is the place I have been waiting for. Garam Masala’s offerings are simple each ontray is served with a plate of Basmati rice cooked with slight spices to perfect the taste. The most inexpensive item on the menu is Chicken Tandoori (a chicken leg quarter tikka) for $2.99 . It is juicy and perfectly cooked in a tandoor. The taste reminded me of Tikkas I have eaten back home. If you are interested in healthier white meat order the Chicken Tikka (a quarter chiken breast ) for a dollar more. Tandoori item is not served with rice but you can get a naan for only a dollar more. I have been struggling to get the right taste of Karahi. Here the taste is close to perfect. Both chicken & mutton Karahi came very close to the taste back home with the right amount of chopped ginger, chilies and cilantro. Have it with hot naan from the clay oven; baked to perfection. The butter chicken ordered was also creamy with sweet buttery taste with pieces of boneless chicken first grilled in tandoor and then mixed with the sauce to blend in the taste. Basmati rice complimented the taste. Chicken boti is another item I fell for the tender perfectly marinated pieces of chicken is grilled to perfection in the tandoor. The taste is real Pakistani. Garam masala has variety of dishes to cater to every taste. They have a good selection of vegetarian and non-veg food.
The owner, Shahid Anis, how I have know for long said, “he has been looking to open a restaurant for a long time.” “This opportunity came along and he grabbed it”. His idea is to have a clean setting with affordable and delicious Pakistani food. He also said, “I only server what I would eat”. He guarantees all meat served is had slaughtered zabiha halal.
Try Garam Masal today you will be happy to find a place that caters to your taste as well as your pocket!
Great Place for good taste – It is one of the best place, no worries about the looks,all the food is excellent. The price is very affordable, you can eat out about two or three times a week. The atmosphere is nice, very freindly people. I love the shahi paneer in vegeterians, its awsome.
Exceptional Indian/Pakistani food – I've been to a lot of Indian/Pakistani restaurants and this is one of my favorites. The food is supper and the price is reasonable. Their Chicken Tikka Masala and Saag Paneer are to die for. I definitely want to try more dishes.
This palce is Great and Inexpensive – I'm excited about this place that just opened in the U District. The quality of the food is on par with the best Indian food I've eaten, and the price is terrific. I got two huge entrees for under 15 bucks. The flavor was awsome and I plan on being a regular customer. Anpther cool thing is that they are open until 11 pm. This place is going to be a local favorite.
