Trying Indian Food in Tokyo, Japan!

Come join us as we try Indian food in Tokyo, Japan. It had been a while since Audrey and I had Indian food so when we noticed a few Indian restaurants in our neighbourhood that we were staying in Tokyo we jumped at the opportunity. The Indian restaurant we decided upon (Milan) ended up specializing mostly in North Indian Food and we decided to go for a variety of different curries, naan breads, samosas and chicken tikka. The following is a list of the Indian dishes we tried at this restaurant:

1) Samosas (Deep fried Indian savory dish featuring potatoes, pees and spices)
2) Chicken Tikka (Boneless chicken baked on a skewer coated with spices and yoghurt)
3) Palak Paneer (Spinach Indian curry with cottage cheese)
4) Paneer Butter Masala (Rich Indian curry with masala spices, extra butter and cottage cheese)
5) Garlic Naan (Indian flatbread with garlic)
6) Cheese Naan (Indian flatbread stuffed with cheese)
7) Butter Naan (Indian flatbread with butter)

Rob’s channel:

Our overall review of trying Indian food in Tokyo, Japan was positive. We found the curries to be rich, spicy and savoury while the naan was massive, buttery and crispy on the outside and gooey in the middle. In terms of price point it came to just over 4000 Yen in total which was roughly $13 US dollars per person. We thought that was excellent value considering Tokyo is an expensive city.

It is dinner and we’re hungry and we’re bringing our appetites. The area that we’re staying in apparently has a lot of Indian food restaurants and we’ve got Indian food on our minds.

Take a look at this. Chicken curries.Vegetable curries. Aloo gobi is also good. Palak paneer. Spinach and cheese curry.

We’ve decided on samosas and chicken tikka so far. We need some curries for sure. I need a vegetable curry. Oh I like the paneer.

One vegetable curry and the other one you wanted paneer butter masala.

Here is a cheese naan, a butter naan, a garlic naan, a vegetable curry, a spinach one and a paneer butter one. And then there is a chicken tikka and there is samosas.

That was an official feast of feasts. That cheese naan was deadly good. Anyways the price was 4,450 Yen roughly about just over $40 US dollars so you’re looking at $13 US to $14 US dollars per person for that entire meal. That included chicken. That included samosas. Three different curries. Three different naan breads. Yeah, that is outstanding value. You know this is an expensive city Tokyo. And to get good authentic Indian food for $13 US dollars per person.
