There were a lot of people excited when they heard an authentic Indian restaurant was coming to town, as it had been decades since there was one!
In January 2019, Chrismaria Family Restaurant opened its doors.
Chrismaria Family Restaurant at New Minas offers wonderful opportunity to have novel Indian dishes. The authentic spices are imported directly from India.
Our family went to do some investigative reporting.
My youngest son and I are spice wimps. My husband and oldest love things hot and spicy! I must admit, since turning 40, I am able to eat a lot spicier food than I could in the past – maybe all my taste buds are dying!
My son was a bit nervous, wondering if he would find something that wasn’t too spicy for him. NO PROBLEM!
He ordered a big plateful of samosas! They weren’t spicy, but they were delicious!
The rest of us tried a variety of dishes, and ended up sharing them around so we could discover our favourite dishes.
Everything was so full of rich flavours!
I ordered a combo plate, and got a bit of everything, including the butter chicken, which I will order a gallon of the next time!
We loved the beef curry and managed to lick the platter clean!
Everything is so delicious from the warm naan bread, the raita, the rice, and everything in between.
For kids who might not be so adventurous to try something new, there are a few basics on the menu including soups, salads, french fries and onion rings.
For those with more adventurous taste buds, it’s a good excuse to go back many times, trying a variety of dishes to determine your favourite.
