I don't remember the owner's names.  Just came across them while having lunch at Rick's Japanese Restaurant and we started talking.  They did introduce themselves but I can not remember their names.  Also, I am not sure if this restaurant will be in the food court or not ... they just said it was next to the casino.  We haven't been over that way yet to see any construction activity that might be taking place.

yes, it is in the food court. Signage says that the restaurant is coming soon.

Are you able to say where in San Antonio, and is it already open? That would be good news.

Several posts in this thread stated it will be in the Food Court of the mall across from Walmart and that it is not yet opened.

I did read those. I also read your post that said it would be in San Antonio, not Ajijic. Confusing.

I can see why you were confused. As noted by Dennis, Walmart and the mall are located in San Antonio, not Ajijic.

Google Map SAT and it shows the food court not being in SAT.  https://www.google.com.mx/maps/place/San+Antonio+Tlayacapan,+45900+Ajijic,+Jal./@20.2972828,-103.2437412,16.75z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x842f41365d0a28c5:0x7e87c840da0b430!8m2!3d20.2929811!4d-103.2389353?hl=es

You better tell those businesses. They use San Antonio as their official address.

This is not a "restaurant"; it is a stall at the food court and the sigh says boldly "Indian Curry", so beyond that i doubt that the menu will contain much more. This will be OK if the curry is good just as the Chinese place there is not a "Chinese restaurant". For me, living in San Antonio, this is strictly a take our resources for cheap, OK, fast food and hopefully a good addition for that purpose.

I might even like it better not being a restaurant if the food is good. Indian food reheats well and I prefer to eat home so take out always welcome. Would be even better if it were good and delivered!

I agree, Gringal. No superior food ever came from a steam tray.

While I tend to agree, I used to plan to have a wonderful Indian vegetarian meal at Changi airport. There was a small Indian restaurant that served cafeteria-style. I flew in and out of Singapore more than 100 times and I always looked forward to my 'steam table' meal. When I grabbed lunch in Singapore, KL, or Jakarta I would go to the wonderful food courts.

Here's my problem with steam tray food:  Who is keeping track of how many times, at the end of the day, the tray goes back in the fridge, only to be re-served the next day, and the next.....and so on?  Around here?  Probably nobody.  So, I'm prejudiced in favor of ordering something from a menu which arrives freshly cooked from the kitchen.  Especially so, if you can see the action going on in the kitchen.  Naturally, that theory has a lot of holes in it, too, but it's all about likelihood.

My favorite Indian restaurant back in CA had a buffet setup, with about 8 choices, but there was never much in the trays and as you dined, you could see a steady stream of fresh food coming from the kitchen to the buffet.  Never got sick after eating there, either.  (An important point.)

However, I really like most Indian food and will keep an open mind until I've tried it.

I agree, Prudent and Gringal. Rapid turnover is a key component. The Chinese takeout kiosk in Soriana is my favorite fast food. Have been eating it for years and never got sick. It is always passably good but really delicious if you get it soon after the trays have been filled from the little kitchen next to the open booth.

Our restaurant , Jasmine's has been on the Ajijic plaza for 5 years. We will be reopening for the new season next month. we grind all of our own spices, make homemade chutneys and everyone loves our samosas and naan. We have a basic vegan menu with plenty of other dishes like chicken tikka masala, vindaloo, coconut shrimp and lamb madras, so come by and check us out. We will place an announcement in the restaurant news section with the details,

Ask a Real Estate agent. They all say SAT not Ajijic. Google is often incorrect.

Having been born and raised in an England at war I remember the Indian sub-culture that was brought about by England’s 200 year history with India which ended in 1948.

England had then and still has a strong love of Indian Cuisine and it even shows in the Fish and Chip Shops where you can buy Chips and Curry Sauce rather than gravy. Even many British Pubs serve curries. There is a complete British Indian cuisine style in England now which may or may not be entirely authentic Indian Cuisine. Aficionados may want to read:

https://www.reddit.com/r/AskHistorians/comments/24icha/what_is_the_history_of_curry_who_invented_it_how/

Arriving in Toronto in 1967 I hoped that I would be able to find an Indian Restaurant. Well there was one (maybe the “Taj Mahal”) but I am not sure if there were any more. I never found another one at that time although more came in to being in the 70’s. But then I only lived in Toronto for a couple of years. In the intervening years, I was introduced to West Indian and Guyana style curries which are quite different to Indian curries and because they are easier to cook that is the style I cook today and eat with my own Mango or Quince and Apple Chutneys.

Today there are at least 526 curry restaurants in Greater Toronto area so the choice is much better than it was 50 years ago. I look forward to eating at the Roti Hut in Scarborough in a few weeks which as the name implies serves a West Indian Curry served in a Roti. I hope I also get to the “Duke of Kent” to try their British Pub style curry.

Here at Lakeside we are never likely to get a curry that will suit everyone’s palates even if our supply doubles with the addition of another outlet which I look forward to trying. For those who have tried it the owner at Gossips is African and prepares a quite delicious African curry that is rarely on his menu. Instead he offers Thai curries that in no way taste the same. If enough of us bug him he may be persuaded to offer it on occasion. I would even help him spread the word.

In the meantime, I will cook my own Jamaican Style Curry.
