If it ain't spicy it's crap!!! LOL

Yeah, the Atlanta area has really developed when it comes to ethnic restaurants since I was a kid.  Plenty of good Vietnamese to be had.

AYE, lads!  Thumbs Up

Here in the Akron/Canton area, if you want Viet, you have to go to Cleveland, an hour to the north.  Last time I went up there, as I was paying my bill I told the girl I was from Akron/Canton, and she said they get a LOT of customers from there.  Someone should seriously consider opening a pho house down this way.  I'd be there every week.


BRUTAL.

You cannot compare the Indian and Chinese food. Both of them are delicious and tasty. But I would prefer Indian food mostly because there are many kinds of varieties are available in Indian food. Chinese fast food is mostly famous all over the world and they are the inventor of many dishes also.

Depends--  you can usually find good Indian food where there's large Indian populations (England, US Westcoast), whereas good Chinese places are increasingly rare.   And as much as I love Chinese, I find Indian to be generally more refined, and their use of spices unequaled.

Indian over American Chinese. American over authentic Chinese.

Broke the tie! Chinese is overrated (but good) Indian is the lesser-known gem. An acquired taste, but amazing after a few bites Wink

I had the good fortune of spending several weeks in China this summer and got to eat lots of the real deal - rabbit, eel, sheep's blood, fish head soup, turtle, pig's feet, hot pot, etc.  Most of it was really good and eating a meal in China is certainly much more of a social experience than most meals in the U.S.

That said I still voted for Indian.  One of the best meals I've had in recent memory was biryani and modak dumplings at a little cafe across the street from the theater before a Decemberists concert.  Awesome (even if the people next to us at the concert probably didn't appreciate our fragrance) LOL

But Greek food needs more love - moussaka with dolmades and a salad heaped with feta and smelts is totally da bomb; in fact, I was going to go out for Mexican food today but after this I think a Greek lunch is in order Thumbs Up

Probably a slight nod to good Indian food.  I had an Indian friend back in childhood.  I would go to their house and be instantly knocked over by the smell of spices walking through the door.  They would make authentic sauces in their kitchen and introduce me to the difference between "american hot" and "indian hot".  Wow!  My friend was the only one who spoke English with much success, so when he would leave the room I would communicate with his large family through body language, smiles, etc.  It was a great experience.  My friend (their youngest boy) was completely americanized and much more interested in the food at our house, while I was interested in his Mom's home made creations.  The grass is always greener?  They also taught me to play Karom (Carom?), an intensely fun game akin to table top pool.  I bought my own board a few years back to play it with my nieces.  Sure beats video games. 

I also had a Vietnamese friend who had just escaped Saigon with gunfire at their back.  Same thing.  He wanted my Fruit Loops and burgers on the grill.  I was interested in his Mom's amazing home made eggrolls.  To this day I"ve never had egg rolls that tasted like those she made in her little kitchen, far away from her home.  She never said a word to me when I was there, but every time I walked in the door she gave me food. 

Two of my best friends as a boy.  I consider myself lucky not for the friendships alone, but for the chance to have had truly authentic Indian and Vietnamese far better than any restaurant I've been to since.  Both made by Moms who had just stepped foot in USA. 
Blessed Easter to you and yours...

sighs.... Cry
Oh you have no idea how much I missed my country's food...
Btw, if you go tonight or any other night, ask them if they have in the menu 'Pastitsio', and in the salads 'Ntakos'.Wink
If you like moussaka I believe you will love pastitsio. And as for Ntakos, is a special Salad from Crete island.
Simply amazing!
You can thank me later... LOL

Yes. My mother accidentally combined Chinese curry and tikka masala sauces. It was awesome. We then named it 'the Chindian'.
