It’s been awhile since we’ve had Indian food so we decided to try a new spot, Delhi Fusion Indian Cuisine. It’s next door to Sushi Ninja and Belgian Fries.
We dropped in on a Friday evening (around 7:30pm) and were the only ones that dined in, aside from one other solo diner. The rest were takeout orders. Our waiter assisted us with the menu for our friend who had some allergy restrictions. Sadly, he didn’t ask what spice level we wanted.
The menu consists of soups & salads, appetizers (they have momos!), tandoori, vegetarian dishes, meats (chicken, lamb, prawn, fish, beef and goat), rice, bread and desserts.
10% is offered on takeout orders and they have a cheap $9.99 lunch combo.
2x Naan ($1.99)
Standard but a touch on the soft side and the naan didn’t come out as hot as we prefer.
Decent portion of rice to go with all of our entrees.
Dal tadka ($11.99)
Yellow lentils seasoned with desi ghee tadka. This was my least favourite dish of the night. Lentils weren’t flavourful and texture was mushy.
Curry chicken ($13.99)
Northern style dish made in traditional thin curry sauce with pounded chicken. Average but not exactly what we were expecting from a curry sauce. Not much punch or kick in flavour.
Goat spinach ($15.99)
Goat meat with traditional style cooked spinach. Best dish of the night. Goat meat (bone-in) was tender but still retained a bite. Palak was excellent and flavourful.
Veggie biryani ($12.99)
Cooked with bell peppers, onions, potatoes and cauliflower. Not very memorable.
Mostly standard fare at DFIC that doesn’t help it differentiate from other Indian spots on the Drive.
