I’m at a loss as to which category Mad Nest falls into.
Can’t merely pass it off as a Western restaurant since there’s sushi and sashimi. Not entirely Japanese either as Northern Indian naan and curries are featured too. Oh ya, not forgetting “Italian-Asian” dishes like seafood laksa and chilli crab pasta. Then there’s also a section on all-day brunch. Confusing much? Hmmm..
We only tried maybe 1% (or less?) of the offerings on the very extensive menu so a proper review is impossible. Totally didn’t like the oishii maki, a mayo-overdose disaster but other than that, the curries were pretty good, especially the kadai fish curry! Fish so soft it literally melted in the mouth, though more pieces of fish would be greatly appreciated. Still prefer Zaffron Kitchen down the road for generous authentic Indian cuisine!
Top left, clockwise: assorted naan basket ($9+); kadai fish cubes cooked in garlic and ginger paste ($13+); mango lassi and mint cumin lassi ($5+ each); dhal tadka, mixture of yellow lentils and cumin ($8+); oishii maki, grilled eel and roasted salmon with avocado and homemade mayo ($16+).
