Now Open Near The Parker in Alexandria: Spice Kraft Indian Bistro
Since opening its doors in August, Spice Kraft Indian Bistro has garnered a slew of positive reviews, both on Yelp and in local publications. The restaurant has taken over the space where Bombay Curry Co. used to be, and patrons say that while the menu remains largely the same, diners now have a number of new mix-and-match options that didn’t exist before. Popular lunch specials, for example, allow you to choose from a variety of traditional Indian sauces to be served with naan bread and a handful of sides. The dinner menu is more progressive, featuring innovative dishes from Chef Premnath Durairaj. For example, try the lamb shank josh, which is an updated version of lamb roganjosh and includes a spiced turmeric mashed potato on the side.
Be aware that this place closes for a few hours each afternoon between lunch and dinner service, so you might call ahead if you’re headed out for a late lunch or early dinner.
