DIMPLE .....now VATAN ....!!!!!

Dimple NY
So is this VATAN ???.........Is VATAN closed ??....Where is Dimple???... Is Dimple closed ???.......

wait...wait.!!!!!.....Let me give the answers for this.....

DIMPLE is VATAN ...... what ????.... yes....


On the 30th street between 5th and broadway avenue was Dimple beforeDimple Vatan NY....Now it is DIMPLE again but the management has been changed and is now owned by the same folks who own Vatan, which is currently being renovated. VATAN is coming up with a more bigger restaurant in that place. Dimple currently has Vatan's menu and its style -- the menu is solely prix-fixe and served in courses, but you can have unlimited helpings of any disk in any of the courses. Dimple has wonderful, authentic food, and it's often food that you will not find easily in other Indian restaurants.

Dimple has an open ambience and is very different from the old Vatan's. The servers are all dressed in traditional Indian dresses, and even the plates are authentic stainless steel, with metaDimple/vatan food NYl jugs for water.

But now Dimple not only serves Dinner but also has lunch and snacks now. They are closed on Mondays.

LUNCH and SNACKS Tuesday-Saturday, 12:15pm- 3:15pm. Closed for Lunch on Sundays.

DINNER Prix Fixe Menu Tuesday-Sunday 5:30 Pm

All in all, a bargain at $24.95/person, and certainly some of the best Indian food in the city.
