Looking back it's been a while since I reviewed a restaurant as "Not Great." Unfortunately, it is something that must be done now and then. My wife and I heard about a new Indian restaurant in Yokosuka (Really? Another one?) and decided to walk down and check it out this weekend. It's located way down past Verny Park right next to the Yokosuka train station (not to be confused with Yokosuka Chuo station which is a different train line). It's a bit of a walk from where we live, but it was a pleasant evening.
Lo and behold, when we rounded the bend, we saw the name of the place was "New Delicious," so apparently this is an offshoot of the Delicious Indian restaurant that is the closest one to our apartment. We actually don't mind Delicious, so we figured this place might be similar.
Wishing to try some different things, my wife ordered the samosas (2 pieces), chili chicken and a piece of naan. I went for the special mutton dry curry and some garlic rice. The samosas were actually pretty good, so no complaints there. The chili chicken was a bit disappointing, consisting of a neon red sweet and sour gelatinous goop over some vegetables and fried chicken pieces. My mutton dry curry was oddly unpleasant as well in a hard to define way. It definitely wasn't dry...more thick...super thick but also smooth. The mutton pieces were very chewy. And the meal didn't sit well with either of us later that evening.
I was going to rate it an Ok, but the next day we ate at a different Indian place that we thought was better, but still just Ok, so that puts this one down a notch into Not Great territory.
