Last Wednesday Richard and I had dinner at Vedas in the French Concession. It’s the second Indian restaurant I’ve been to in Shanghai. The first one, Indian Kitchen, was pretty bad both times I went serving up fairly flavorless dishs. Vedas, thankfully, was pretty good. I’d rate it average to above average compared to Indian restaurant in the Bay Area. I had the palak panner. The palak wasn’t bad (right texture but the flavor wasn’t the best) but the panner was excellent and what I expected it to be. Richard said he enjoyed the lamb he ordered, as well. They claim on their menu’s to be the only authentic Indian resturant in Shanghai and from my experience it holds up. Now, if only I can find a good Mexican restaurant.
