Avatars Bold Fusion Blend Cuisine

From the outside, Avatars restaurant looks like your average local lunch place. Stepping inside, nothing much changes style wise — it’s clean and unassuming with lovely photographs of India by local photographers Craig Kolb and Judith Bang Kolb lining the walls.

But as soon as you have a plate of owner and chef Ashok’s fusion blend of Indian, Californian and Mexican cuisine, you are no longer in the realm of the ordinary. Ashok calls the food Marindian and says his customers call it ethnic confusion. Whatever the name, it’s worth a visit just to sample such unusual items as the pumpkin enchilada with sweet chutney. The service is always warm, friendly and accommodating, and the food never disappoints.

So customer-focused is Ashok, the owner, that their Web site even boldly declares “All Diets Welcome. We are happy to make any dish to your specific dietary needs. Vegan, gluten free, dairy free — all ok!” And he means it. I’ve been eating there for almost two decades, and, in that time, I’ve been through every diet known to man, and Ashok has always managed to accommodate my various food coming and goings — no tomatoes, no wheat, no dairy, no peppers — and still make his food delicious.

With an average of 4.5 stars on Yelp, 5 stars in City Search and a mention in the Zagat guide, this place is always packed.
