Mirch Masala, Seattle, WA

Have I told you that Indian food is probably my favorite food? I don’t eat it that often, but when I do, I feel like I’m awakening my taste buds. So the other week, S and I were craving some Indian food so we decided to try Mirch Masala. It’s located in the Capitol Hill district of Seattle, which is a popular district but not one we have spent much time in. Every time I go to the Hill I see restaurants that look so appealing though!

Here’s a look at what we had:

Beer and Complimentary Appetizer

Butter Chicken. Boneless Tandoor Seared Chicken Braised in a Creamy Tomato and Onion Sauce

The butter chicken was pretty tasty. It wasn’t as creamy as I like but it was still pretty good. The chicken could have been a little bit more tender though.

Chicken Goan Curry. Chicken Simmered with Coconut in a Creamy Curry Sauce

I wasn’t the biggest fan of this dish, but S really liked it. I generally like curry, but this one didn’t taste a lot like the curry that I am familiar with. It was really thick as well. Too thick for my liking!

Saag Paneer. Fresh Spinach with Homemade Cheese in a Mildly Spiced Gravy

Saag Paneer is probably my favorite dish, one that I always order when I go for Indian. This one was pretty tasty, the cheese was really good. It was a little less creamy than I would have liked as well, but it was still good.

Keeping the Dishes Warm with a Tea Candle

Under each of our entrees they had this little tea candle which I thought was so cleaver. It really did a good job of keeping our dishes warm throughout the meal. It’s surprising how much heat can come off these little candles.

Side of Rice

Garlic Naan and Plain Naan

We got a side of rice, plain naan and garlic naan to eat with our mains. I ordered the plain naan thinking that the garlic naan would be disappointing but it was actually really good! The garlic naan was very garlicky – just the way I like it!

The Damage $61.32

Total Damage: $61.32 (including tax, not including tip)

Personal Rating: 2.75 out of 5 (OK)

Overall, this place was OK. I wouldn’t refuse to go back, but I would probably not suggest going here again. The service was just ok. They were not that attentive, but the server was nice enough. It was a Friday night and they had some take out orders they were dealing with, but the restaurant itself wasn’t that busy. The food was ok, but I have definitely had better Indian food in Seattle.
