Spice Hut - The best Fast Food restaurant in Fremont California!

I suddenly realized that it has been a long time since I posted a restaurant review. I've been so busy creating my own special recipes that I forgot about the great chefs working day in and day out to serve us quality food when we go to their restaurants!! So, here's a tribute to one of my special food joints; Spice Hut in Fremont, CA is the best self-serve Indian fast food restaurant that I've been to in the Bay Area. And with a large menu full of top picks from around the country, this is sure to win your hearts and souls (after all, great food touches your soul, right!!:))

Spice Hut is located on Cedar Blvd in Newark in a small place in one of the road-side complexes. The place is easy to miss, and we had to make a U-turn and come back to discover it. As the area is small, you have to stand in line as soon as you enter the door, to order for your food at the counter. They have ample seating, and you can join tables at the far end of the restaurant to accomodate large groups, and there's also the patio seating if you are in the mood. But even with all this, the place is always cramped; well, I told you, it has the best food at the right price!! Plus, it's not a lavish restaurant, so if you come here with that in mind, and if you are not wary of children creating havoc and having fun, you would enjoy Spice-Hut.

Now for the good part, the menu has a huge collection of vegetarian and non-vegetarian regional favourites, including "Indian-Chinese" food (yes, there's actually a food category by that name!!) I love their Paneer Chilly and Veg manchurian with Fried Rice!! amazingly simple and tastes so good!! Other dishes that deserve a mention are the Veggi Burgers, Mysore Masala Dosa, the Masala Fried Fish Combo and the biryanis.We went there once for a team outing and all my colleagues (mostly americans and chinese) loved the food there!! They also have combos so you can choose 2-3 items in a meal. This is ideal for first-time visitors who want to taste a little bit of everything. And don't forget to try out their chutneys and raitha which comes complimentary with your meals. I just love their tomato-onion chutney!!

They have branches in Sunnyvale, San Jose and Menlo Park too, but I like the Fremont one because it is the largest in area. The food is fresh and the staff is cordial. The price is also perfect for a quick lunch or an evening with friends. The restaurant is reasonably-clean for a self-serve one. You cannot expect the luxury of a dine-in restaurant, so don't come here with any pre-notions!! Overall, I would rate it a 4 out of 5. it loses the 5th star for the cramped place and the noisy environment. Not something for a quiet evening or a special date!! But the best in Indian food for your money's worth!

If you happen to be around Fremont or Newark, you have to try Spice Hut; and come back to share your experiences with us!!

We use to get the food here regularly for the last 2 years. It used to be very good now, the quality has gone bad to worse. may be the chef got changed.
