Reviews for India Joze

His East Asian dishes are a bit off for me, not sure how. Otherwise for those I'm not as close to the tradition with, I can eat and enjoy (like the lentils and pakora, and his Indian sauces). But I am a fan of hearing Joseph speak. I took a cooking class with him and when seeing him in action and picking his brain, I fall in love with his personality and show (yes, all restaurants and businesses must have a performance, look at Joe and his Chinese cleaver in a holster!). full review
I love the atmosphere and vibe inside this restaurant. The decorations, the motif, all blend together to give this homey bohemian feel to it. There are no waitresses, but they do have "runners". You get a menu when you walk in and a table. You then order on your cell phone; and they bring it out when they are done. I had the Joze Dahl. Its an Indian themed vegetable lentil dish and it came to the table hot n steamy with rice. It had scents of India. It was full review

We ate here (well, not "here" here, but at the previous version) in 1993, and now that we're more local, whenever we get down to Santa Cruz on a Saturday. The food is spectacular, and the ambiance is... nifty! A pleasure to eat great food in a cozy place, prepared by people who're crafting wonderful things. And the sauces! A quirky little hole in the wall I will always remember and cherish.
