Mayuri Indian, Tallahassee

Across the street from our hotel, we spied an Indian restaurant, Mayuri Indian, and our local friend told us it was one of just two Indian restaurants in this small town. So, we met him there for dinner one night.

We had a fairly large party of five and it took them a little bit of time to prepare the table for us, but luckily we came early because it is a very small restaurant and apparently very popular.

Inside the red tablecloths were covered with a sheet of plexiglass, so it wasn't the classiest place. Also, amidst the pictures of India was a large screen television showing a game--not really my cup of tea.

I was pleased though when I opened the menu to find a section of vegan entrees. When I inquired about vegan appetizers, there were some, but the samosas that I wanted were not vegan so I just decided to forego the appetizer.

For my entree, I went with the Mixed Vegetable Curry-- extra spicy. The curry was tasty and the vegetables (potatoes, peas, cauliflower, and green beans) were good. The rice, however, was not the typical seasoned rice you get in Indian restaurants. Instead, it was steamed rice, which really took away from the meal. And as that was all I ate, it's all I have to go on.

The service was slow, the entire meal was only $10 so very cheap, and the food was so-so. This place would never survive in DC, but it's probably the best Indian Tallahassee has.
