Slowly working our way through trying all the the spots along Hastings. We settled on Indian Village Eatery, a small Pakistani spot. They’re next door to the High Point Beer & Wine Shop.
Couple of signs.
We dropped in on a Friday evening (around 8:00pm). The inside is cramped but there’s three tables for dine in (total of 10 seats). Service is bare bones; when we went, the son was the only one waitering. Had to ask for extra plates, utensils, waters, etc.
The menu is split into samosas, pakoras, wraps, biryani, meat (tandoori chicken, chicken, lamb and fish), vegetarian, flatbreads and desserts. They have lunch specials (12:00pm to 5:00pm) and all day specials.
The bestseller sampler ($40.00) seemed very reasonable. All entrees come with a side (rice, naan or roti). They didn’t ask for spice level so make sure to request that if you’re a spice head.
The garlic naan wasn’t worth the upgrade; all you get is chunks of raw garlic inside.
The naan itself reminded me more of paratha’s than naan with a more denser, flat texture.
Pakoras were perfectly deep fried yet still light and crunchy.
Debit or cash only. Cheap prices and appreciate the different size options at IVE but lacking quality.
