My Favorite Restaurant: Sunny Taj
I love Indian foods. And “Sunny Taj” is my favorite. The top photo, the left person is Bisen Shing, the main chef, and right is Bir Shingh. I’m sorry I didn’t get the name of the middle cook. Looking at their faces, I tend to speak in English, but Bir speaks Japanese.
The restaurant just moved to the new location in September to the back of the new large building that is still under construction. The building is situated across and leftward from the Keikyu Department Store. I’m writing these details because even though most readers do not live in Yokohama, but if any of you go, I want you to find it. I checked the Web information, and they all point to the old location, and their rating of Sunny Taj does not justify their food and services.
I go there often, and their food is excellent. I especially like vegetable curry. The curry has chunky turnip, carrot, and potato to fit to Japanese taste. But I don’t go there just for the food. I go there because the owners and employees are warm. I feel at home. And prices are reasonable.
I took these photos with the female owner’s permission, but when I made a shot, she hid herself to the right behind the window. It was the evening before I left Japan, and the restaurant was packed. So I had to hurry up and clicked away. That’s my excuse for a bit blur images.
