I had stopped here once before the renovation but because it was not the closest Indian/Pakistani restaurant to home, I did not return until last week. My loss.
My son and I found the food to be superb. We are both vegetarians and found plenty of potions. The falafel was superb, some of the best I've had. The chickpeas -- very good that came with a large serving of rice. I happen to really like grape leaves and found the serving of six for $3.50 a tasteful bargain. It was interesting to try a slightly different version of "Samosa Chaat." (Another restaurant I've been too calls it "Chaat Samosa.") I preferred Gourmet's version. It isn't overpowered by onions and so instead, the onions provide a note of sweetness to balance against the slight heat. The only minor distraction was the Tabullah. I don't think I'll be ordering it next time. And, oh yes, there will be a next time and many more!
Just one further note, my rating here reflects taste and value and not ambiance. I don't expect my authentic ethnic restaurants to be appointed as a Michelin Reviewed 5 star. Instead I look for flavor, value and friendly owners/staff and Gourmet has these in abundance.
