Restaurant Review: Krishna

Date Posted: 2005-04-23

Nowhere is tradition of good and healthy cooking been alive as long as in India. Stretching back thousands of years of Indian cooking traditions with its myriads of spices and herbs has won aficionados all over the world, and Okinawa is no exception. Among several Indian eateries on the island, Restaurant Krishna located on the third floor of Plaza House Shopping Center stands out.

"Our food is very healthy and rich in taste," says Mohan Singh, one of the two Indian chefs of the restaurant. “We also use plenty of original spices, such as turmeric and galam masala, a mixture of spices that gives many Indian dishes their typical, pungent flavor,” Singh continues.

Gundan Singh, the other cook that rules over Krishna’s tandoori kitchen says that, another secret to Krishna’s quality is that they do not use leftovers from previous day. “Instead, we make everything fresh daily from original ingredients,” he says.

The two chefs, both with 30 years of experience in Indian cooking say that they put an extra effort into making the meals as healthy as possible. “We make sure that we add fruits and vegetables to various dishes to supplement the nutrients found in the main food item. For instance, if a dish is lacking vitamin C, we add lemon to the mix to make sure each dish is as good for the body as possible,” Mohan Singh says.

"It is important that the cook who specializes in spices knows how and when to use spices to get the taste right," adds Guindan Singh.

Krishna's dinner menu is packed full of different indian meals, curries, and breads. If you're looking to try something different and are tired of the usual meals, Krishna is the place to go. The menu features daily specials, both for lunch and dinner. Kirishna’s lunch set costs \893, while their ample Krishna dinner set costs \1,500. Even more sumptuous Mughal dinner set costs \1,800. Each of these sets also comes with salad, naan or rice, a lassi or chai, and dessert.

If you'd like to try Indian food but don't enjoy spicy food much, don't worry. The Krishna team will customize your meal to your individual tastes. "We sometimes change things for the Japanese people who don't like their food to be so spicy," says Mohan Singh. “We customize each meal to the taste of the customer. We can make our meals mild or spicy."

Krishna is open daily from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. for lunch and from 6 to 11 p.m. for dinner. It is closed on second and fourth Tuesday of every month. Also, every Tuesday is is open for lunch only.

As a part of their anniversary, they offer free glass of wine or beer with their dinner during the three days of celebration.

Krishna sits on the third floor of the Plaza shopping center between Awase and Okinawa city, so the restaurant is very easy to find. Also, free parking is available in the basement.
