This restaurant was recommended to us by the owners of a bed and breakfast in which we were staying. I need to find places to accommodate my vegan diet and Indian food is almost always a safe bet. The problem is that there are many variations in the quality of Indian restaurants. I'm happy to say, this is one of the best.
There is nothing fancy about Minar but the food is phenomenal. I had the Chana Masala and while my companion's portion of his Vegetable Biryani was twice the size of mine, I was not disappointed. Not to say my portion wasn't generous (we both brought home leftovers) but his was huge. There's nothing like bringing home leftovers from an outstanding meal!
The service was very good if not a little slow at the end of our meal despite there being so few patrons left at that late hour. Our server was very knowledgeable and was able to steer me away from the Naan bread because it contained.dairy. That kind of consideration is not found in every restaurant.
Overall, we both were very, very pleased at the taste and quality of the food and will definitely go here again if we find ourselves in Utica.
