    Excellent Vada Pav

    I am from Mumbai and this is the best vada pav I have never had in US. I have tried vada pav at various other places in ny and nj nothing beats this. It is offcourse not as good as the ones we get in Mumbai, but very close.

    Delicious!

    I'll make it easy for you. Start with an order of the cauliflower manchurian and you'll have difficulty leaving without ordering at least other 5 things on the menu. Fantastic food and wonderfully pleasant staff (at least on a Sunday afternoon). Try it, you'll be hooked.

    Disappointing food!

    When the pav or pao (bread) at a place called Amchi Pao is stale, that has to be a warning sign about the food. I am from Bombay, and can vouch for the fact that the food is not authentic, tasty or even fresh. They give the good old microwave a great big whirl after you put in your order - virtually nothing is cooked fresh. The vada pav was liberally spread with a green chutney - anyone from India would know that the authentic green chutney is made from cilantro and chilies (hot peppers), not a general green mush with MINT in it. The pav bhaji was just generally spicy and tasted nothing like the good, old pav bhaji back home. We did not dare try anything else on their menu after the first two disasters. Did I mention that it was an incredibly hot day and they refused to turn on the cooling? We are definitely not going back - even a wave of Mumbai nostalgia is not taking us back there.

    Yum!

    This place is just what I was looking for. Comfort food, good value, and the server was really nice. Vada and Bhaji are vegan

    It's vada pav alright!

    The vada is there, the pav is there. And they're both good. So why doesn't it taste like the one outside VT Station? Perhaps because this one is made with decent ingredients, and served on a fancy clean place which you eat sitting in a restaurant without flies. The vada pav I remember and cherish was cooked on a kerosene stove on a cart under a tree and served on month old news paper with salted green chilies. There were at least 25 other people just hanging out there idly on a katta. It's the same reason vada pav doesn't taste good at home even in India. So if you go in expecting vada pav that came from your favourite vadawala back home, you'll end up pretty disappointed. For what they serve, this place is quite good and they're still improving it. And to the owners of Amchi Pao, where is the Chai? It's like eating a bagel without coffee.

    Displeased

    The chaat of the day seemed like it was from the freezer! Was so cold! The chicken tikka roll is less greasy than the Kathi Roll Co's. Is it better? It's debatable, but the chicken meat seemed fresher. The items are overpriced for the servings you get.

    Pao Rocks

    I have been watching this space transforming to Pao from my favorite Paratha place. Sad no more parathas, but i tried their vada pao and chicken tikka pao, they were sooo good. Pao rocks.
