Rehoboth Beach
Indigo will offer a range of North Indian dishes including Tandoori Chicken, Butter Chicken, Garlic Naan, Chicken Tikka Masala, Dal Makhani, Baingan Barta, etc.

The menu is expected to feature a few South Indian items as well.

It's not clear if the new restaurtant will feature a lunch buffet.

Say what you want but an Indian restaurant without a lunch buffet is like Trump without his LIES. :)

Indigo will have a bar although it may not be ready when the restaurant opens in a few weeks (Target Date: Memorial Day).

Maryland Owners
Indigo is being set up by the owners of India's restaurant in Annapolis (Maryland).

India's annapolis maryland
India's, Annapolis (MD)
We have been to India's on several occasions.

Our experience at India's has been a mixed bag.

The old man (owner Suraj Kumar) is a friendly fellow, eager to help. But the younger servers have left us disappointed.

Indigo is coming up at 44 Rehoboth Ave (at the site of the former The Dough Roller pizza place).

We hope Indigo will bring fine Indian food and service to Rehoboth Beach.

May it be the first of many Indian restaurants to come up in Southern Delaware.

Indian Murdered for $20 During Daytime Robbery in Wilmington
January 11, 2017 - Two nut-jobs killed Santanu Kumar Muhuri, a 64-year old Indian, in Wilmington on January 9, 2017.

Owner of the small Lancaster Market store (at the corner of North Clayton St and Lancaster Avenue), Santanu Kumar was killed in a robbery that turned violent.

Santanu Kumar was shot in the head inside the store around 1PM on Monday, January 9.

Emergency medical crew treated the victim at the scene and then took him to the Christiana Hospital where he died at 1:40PM of his injuries.

Local residents described Santanu Kumar as a nice, friendly man who always had a "Hi" for his customers.

Media reports say that after shooting Santanu Kumar, his attackers stole $20 from the store.

14-Year Old Arrested
Police have arrested 14-year old kid Jakevis Ellington and 22-year old Devonte Dorsett in connection with Santanu Kumar's murder.

The two suspects have been charged with first-degree murder, first-degree robbery, possession of a firearm by a person prohibited and related counts.

Jakevis and Devonte are suspects and must be considered innocent until and unless a court finds them guilty.

The murder weapon, a .45-caliber gun, has been recovered.

Stay Away from Wilmington
Santanu Kumar is the second homicide victim in Wilmington in 2017.

Indians keen on avoiding poor Santanu Kumar's fate should stay away from downtown Wilmington at any time.

Wilmington has turned into a kind of war zone where innocent people are shot, stabbed, robbed and assaulted.

The local police has lost all control over downtown Wilmington and remain mute witness to the orgy of violence roiling the city.

Local residents refer to Wilmington as "Little Vietnam" because of the constant violence and frequent shootings.

October 30, 2016 - If one Delaware Indian restaurant dies, you can be sure another will quickly be born.

Barely had the news sunk in among Indian food aficionados that Nirvana on Concord Pike had breathed its last than the bells pealed announcing the birth of a new desi restaurant.

Hyderabad House opened its doors at 4621 Ogletown Stanton Road in Newark on October 29, 2016.

Biryani Specialists
Like the other new Indian restaurants (Godavari & Bawarchi Biryani) in Delaware, Hyderabad House specializes in Andhra/Telengana cuisine although it offers food from other parts of India as well.

Hyderabad Dum Egg Biryani
Several varieties of Biryani including Ulavacharu Chicken Biryani, Goat Dum Biryani, Egg Biryani, Paneer Biryani, Shrimp Fry Biryani, Lagani Chicken Biryani and Avakai Chicken Biryani are part of Hyderabad House's long menu.

A variety of North Indian curries and bread, and South Indian favorites like Idli, Masala Dosa and Medhu Vada are also available at Hyderabad House.

Hyderabad House Buffet
Hyderabad House offers a daily lunch buffet.

The weekday buffet is $10.99 while the weekend buffet is $13.99.

Nirvana Kisses the Dust
October 6, 2016 - Nirvana Indian restaurant located in Independence Mall on Concord Pike in Wilmington has shut down its doors.

Nirvana Wilmington Appetizers © DelawareIndia.com
Chicken Tikka @ Nirvana
An all-you-can-eat lunch buffet with Groupon and Living Social deals for over two years and a decent location (on RT-202 in the Independence Mall) could not save this Indian restaurant.

Nirvana, which had been around for over a dozen years, served both North Indian and South Indian curries.

Crowded Scene
But Indian food lovers don't have to mourn the death of Nirvana.

There are far too many Indian restaurants in the First state serving lunch buffet, biryanis and street food like chaats etc.

By our count, there are still 24 Indian restaurants in Delaware including two in the state capital Dover.

Now comes the $64,000 question.

Is there a market for so many Indian restaurants when the existing ones even with lunch buffets and Groupon deals are failing.

The U.S. economy is still in a sluggish state and Americans are not eating out at ethnic restaurants as much as they used to.

One has to wait and see which Delaware Indian restaurant will close next.

April 22, 2016 - As I sat sipping the divine Rasam in a cozy booth at Godavari, the new South Indian restaurant on Kirkwood Highway in Wilmington, my thoughts drifted to a story I'd recently read, The Country Husband.

...Like the young woman from Normandy, Godavari is a strange combination of grandeur and the profane.

The Rasam, Bengaluru Bindi Pulusu and Chicken Curry I sampled at Godavari were glorious triumphs heralding an excellence seldom seen at Indian restaurants in Delaware.

But Godavari is also an egregious instance of sullied grandeur since it was marred by inexcusable mistakes.

I encountered grave disappointment in the lukewarm, under-flavored Chicken Dum Biryani....Read More

Cheap Prices
A huge plus of Produce Junction is that the prices are very cheap.

A big bag of Ginger costs just $1 and for $1.50 you can get two Coconuts.

The disadvantage of Produce Junction is that the store takes cash only and does not provide a receipt for purchases.

Just two months after opening, Produce Junction has already become very popular and gets crowded in the evenings. Head there during the afternoon if you want a less-crowded atmosphere.

DE Rewards Illegal Desis with Driver's License
July 1, 2015 - For all the Indian illegal immigrants in Delaware crying foul over the failure of the Obama administration to bless them with an amnesty, there's a consolation prize.

Come January 1, 2016, desi illegals (and undocumented workers of other nationalities too) in Delaware will be able to get a Driver's License.

The Driver's Licenses for illegal immigrants will be marked "Not Valid for Identification" and "Driving Privileges Only."

Applicants for the "illegals Driver's License" must submit proof of residence in Delaware for two years and get fingerprinted to get the license.

Delaware's political bodies (the Senate and House of Representatives) signed off on the legislation on June 30, 2015 and the "illegals Driver's License" bill has gone to Governor Jack Markell for his signature.Since Governor Markell is a strong supporter of granting Driver's License to undocumented immigrants in Delaware, he will sign the "illegals Driver's License" bill.

Delaware intends to spend $317,652 to launch the Driver's License for illegal immigrants program plus another $112,652 every year.

Indian Illegals in Delaware
Delaware has over 20,000 illegal immigrants of which at least a few thousand are Indians.

Boy, aren't all you illegal desis glad you live in the great state of Delaware where the state government spends nearly half a million dollars to assist law-breakers.

When you stop to think how Indians in India attack people from other states (Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore have witnessed violence against 'outsider Indians'), you'll realize how generous Delaware is toward illegal immigrants.

With Delaware issuing Driver's License or so called "Privilege Cards" to illegal immigrants, we can be sure more Indians will be heading to the First State either for short or permanent stay.

Now thank your stars and chant Jai Shri Ram 1,000-times!

3 New Indian Restaurants Hit Delaware

June 20, 2015 - The oversaturated Indian restaurants business in Delaware will see heightened competition with three new desi restaurants hitting the First State.
Prasad Matta's Everest Indian Grocery off Carpenter Road in Wilmington has added an Indian food section to the store.

Peddling only vegetarian items and Chaats (Indian street food), Masala Kitchen has had a presence at the weekend New Castle Farmer's market for the last couple of years.

Including the three new Indian restaurants and the Hindu Temple Canteen in Hockessin, Delaware now has 22 Indian restaurants.

Sadly, most Indian restaurants in Delaware that we've tried offer unpalatable food.

January 11, 2015 - Tandoori Indian restaurant in the Meadowood Shopping Complex on Kirkwood Highway, Newark has been damaged in a fire Saturday, January 10, 2015.

Delaware Tandoori Chicken
Tandoori Chicken

The fire is said to have caused damage to the dining area and front of the Indian restaurant located at 2671 Kirkwood Hwy, Newark, DE 19711.

Fortunately, no one was injured in the fire.

Delaware fire investigators blamed the fire on a faulty kerosene heater in the restaurant.

Tandoori was closed when the fire broke out around 10 in the morning.

The fire is estimated to have caused damages of around $25,000.

Tandoori Restaurant is a fairly new restaurant with several popular Indian dishes like Tandoori Chicken, Tandoori Prawn, Tandoori Shrimp Masala, Tandoori bread, Fish Tikka, Mattar Paneer, Samosa Chaat, Bhel Puri and Mango Lassi on its menu.

The restaurant also served Indian-Chinese items like Chilli Chicken, Gobi Manchurian, Paneer Chilli etc and South Indian favorites like Masala Dosa and Idli.

Location Jinxed?
One wonders if the spot occupied by Tandoori Restaurant in the Meadowwood Shopping Complex is jinxed.

You see, three Indian restaurants (Cafe Chettinad, Himalaya and Flavor of India) that occupied the same spot as Tandoori have closed in the last 10 years.

Here's hoping Tandoori Restaurant will recover from this unfortunate mishap and open its doors soon again.

Amtrak Jokers Leave Without 200 Passengers

Amtrak Train to DC
An Amtrak Train to Washington DC Passing through
Metropark Station, New Jersey

August 4, 2014: In the U.S., the so called national railways Amtrak service is so horribly incompetent that a train recently left New York City Penn Station without the 200 ticketed passengers waiting to board the train for Washington DC.

The passengers were waiting on the platform to leave for Washington DC while the train left from a different platform.

The incident happened on the Acela Express 2253 on Saturday, August 2, 2014 from NYC to Washington DC.

After the train left, the Amtrak buffoons at Penn Station in NYC tried to pacify irate passengers with pizza and Dorito chips.

Based on my experience traveling on Amtrak, the staff are unforgivably rude and the expensive, crappy train service deserves to be shut down.

I don't know why we are squandering tax payer subsidies on these Amtrak chimps.

Folks, the next time you're looking to travel to DC or NYC from Wilminton, don't even think of booking your ticket on Amtrak.

Take the plane or the Chinatown bus.

New Indian Restaurant Coming in Wilmington

July 24, 2014 - An Indian restaurant offering Dosas, Biryani and a choice of curries is scheduled to open in a couple of months.

The restaurant will come up in Wilmington on Carpenter Station Rd adjacent to a Turkish Halal takeout place that also serves Samosas.

Wilmington already has four Indian restaurants - India Grille (Naaman's Rd), Nirvana (RT-202), India Palace (RT-4) and Bawarchi (RT-202).

It's not clear if the new Wilmington Indian restaurant will offer lunch buffets.

Delaware Indian restaurants that do not offer a lunch buffet find it difficult to attract diners.

Expect the still-unnamed restaurant to be up and running by September/October 2014.
