Doraville: Calcutta Palate

Calcutta Palate just opened and I very much enjoyed my meal. It took me a little while to figure out where it is---a separate building on the north side of the Buford Highway Farmer's Market. It's a large space with plenty of tables and they seem to be putting in a bar. The service was very helpful and friendly, although still a little disorganized. I met one of the owners coming in; I also met the chef as he walked around the tables to check on the diners.

I started with papadum, always a crunchy favorite. The tamarind sauce was tasty, not overly tamarind-y.

The chef sent out this small plate of delectables to keep me busy while my entrees were being prepared.

As an example of the rough edges, I ordered the vegetarian thali but ended up with two entrees. The vegetable korma was suitably creamy. The okra was my favorite; the spices and oils combine very well with the green of the okra.

I asked for a small bit of raita to cap things off, which I enjoyed.

And I finished with a rice pudding, which was creamy and just sweet enough without being overpowering.

  1. We went today for lunch on your recommendation. $5.99 per person for a small, but really good, buffet! The sag (spinach) was EXCELLENT!

  2. Thank you so much for your feedback! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed and appreciate it for bearing with us during our opening weeks. We hope to clean up any rough edges soon as we should be fully renovated and our restaurant fully and properly staffed within the next month. Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant and your comments will be taken in mind as we strive for full customer satisfaction. We hope that we can serve you again soon!
