Chili Masala review
Is there any reason to go to Tensta? If you’re new to Stockholm, Tensta is one of the suburbs outside of Stockholm where the population is composed of mostly immigrants. They even speak a type of Swedish there called Rinkeby (a neighborhood near Tensta) Swedish.
To answer your question, YES if you’re a gourmand because there is a genuine Indian restaurant that has great food and fantastic prices.
This is a budget neighborhood resto that one comes to for a filling serving of curry and not to be seen in. We were 9 people and at 7pm, it was full so we were practically sitting in each other’s lap but when you’re with great company, it’s a small price to pay
We ordered the mix pakora which was very good – slices of deep fried potatoes and aubergines and onion bhajis. The brown sauce was a fantastic plum chutney – so good that I didn’t even bother trying the other 2 sauces. (I know, I can’t be an intrepid restaurant critic if I don’t try everything!). For the main, I had the lamb dopiazi which was excellent. Too bad I forgot to ask them to kick it up a notch as Emeril Lagasse would say . It was an excellent curry and very authentic! Hubby had the chicken jalfrezi and I was eyeing his dish the whole time as I thought it was just a tad better than mine. The portions were generous although I would have liked a few more pakora. All in all, I would definitely come back here!
Please note that they’re not licenced to sell alcohol so you’ll have to fill up on their wonderful mango lassi instead! Oh and yes, their naan is wonderful as well!
