The Star of India in San Diego

Some of my family and friends had been to this restaurant before on a previous trip to San Diego, and raved about it. The curries were great. I love it when they are served in metal platters like this. We had chickpeas, lamb, chicken and I ordered mutter paneer, my favourite vegetarian Indian curry. The food came all at once and we didn't have to wait long at all. It was all really tasty.

The bathroom was a bit scary. I had to ask the waiter about the light switch and he turned it clockwise with pliers, and then it seemed to be on some kind of a timer so you had to hurry up --- it was really very funny and just the kind of makeshift quirkiness you expect from hole-in-the-wall places such as these. It gives them character and that's why I like them!
