Chinese Mirch does not deliver.
Each dish is a spicy fusion of Chinese and Indian cuisine. Same owners as I-Chin Sino Indian Cuisine.
The entree menu on their website is broken down by categories - the "vegetable" category is all vegan. In soups, lemon coriander soup is vegan. In appetizers, Crispy Okra, Gobi Manchurian and Tropical Salad are vegan.
Review by crispyheart on March 28, 2007:
- This restaurant rocks. I used to order from here around once a week, back when I lived on e. 24th. But seriously. Indian-Chinese tends to be more Chinese than Indian, but all delicious. They recently expanded so there is more space and less waiting, though they still have crowds on weekends. My parents were visiting, we went here for dinenr & both my absolute carnivore dad & my veg/almost vegan mom were supremely satisfied. It really is spicy though, esp. the "hot & sour soup" to be forewarned. I pretty much love everything about this place. The service is alright, as is the decor. The food stands out.
