El Vic's Kitchen
A lovely small restaurant in College Park that should be much busier than it was. Delicious, flavorful food served pleasantly by their staff. We will go back.
Soup, drinks, and entree took too long to come out when there were only 4 other tables sat. All tables were sat at different times as well. Soup tasted like mushroom water rather than soup. Ordered a mango lassi and it wasn't done right. Has to send it back. There special was not as described. I thought I was getting a rib eye cut steak and it looks like a skirt steak.
Indian selections we ordered were delicious. Waitstaff were attentive and considerate. We were there on Valentine’s Day and they had wonderful treats for those of us that reserved a table. It was a wonderful experience.
The food is very innovative and flavorful however there are some growing pains or issues with the restaurant that aren’t you. The wait staff is very friendly and polite but is not proactive. They do not ask in advance if you want water or other account even though the food is often very spicy. In addition, there did not seem to be good control over the amount of space and he used in some of the dishes. Some of the flavor combinations are unusual, but now that I am aware of them I can choose menu items better in the future.
The food screams Indian but all the dishes seemed off compared to what I expected. I think it may be British-Indian? Notably the cooked carrots was a slew of cooked veggies in a dark brown sauce.
