A word of advice. Unsanitary food handling procedures. I wouldn’t eat there.
This is a little jewel of a restaurant in an unremarkable location. The lunchtime buffet I experienced had a large variety of dishes. All authentic flavours and presented nicely in copper braziers. Lunch buffet included a small basket of naan, although other breads and papads were not included. There are not a huge number of tables, but all were covered in cloth and the waiters were attentive to refilling water glasses, etc. Probably the offerings vary every day. I was delighted to find a lovely rich stew with goat meat. The pickles and chutneys were good. The raita could have been a bit thicker.
Also ordered a pick-up meal for evening, which was called into the restaurant in advance. The extra wait to take out was balanced by the quality of the food — this is not a “fast food” place, but to have a home-cooked authentic meal of India is so unexpected for Harrisburg!
Also the carrot dessert was delicious — not presented as in high-end places with silver leaf decorations, but extremely tasty.
this is a best indian in harrisburg my kids love chicken tikka masala.
We often travel I-81 and find ourselves stopping over near Harrisburg, where it’s hard to find restaurants outside the usual national chain suspects. This was a great find on rte 22, east of Harrisburg proper, 2 miles from the Progress Ave. exit on I-81. We arrived on Sunday night to find a buffet for $11 or order a la carte. We chose the buffet so as to try a greater variety of dishes. I don’t usually enjoy buffets where the food sits on steam tables and gets dried out or tough, but these dishes were mostly fresh and very tasty. The pakora as appetizers had been sitting too long and were limp on the outside. The paneer (cheese and peas in a spicy sauce), the goat curry, the tandoori chicken, and the nan (bread brought fresh from the kitchen) were very good. The chicken tikka masala was in a mild yogurt sauce and was very tender. I did not care as much for the other vegetarian choices; eggplant in a thick sauce, green beans and mushrooms, and the dal (lentil stew) was in a thick curry sauce instead of the more normal thin texture. I did not sample the desserts but they looked quite authentic. I noticed that of the rest of the patrons half were Anglo and half Indian. The Indian groups eschewed the buffet and ordered from the menu.
The *only* complaint I could possibly have about this place is that they take waaaay too long getting the check to you at the table. The food is great, the staff is very nice. They give you a nice little discount for pick-up orders, too.
I am Indian and have lived in the area for the past 7 yrs. I’ve always really enjoyed Aangan! The service has consistently been good-excellent and the food is very good. Of course, it’s not like eating a homemade indian meal, but that’s pretty unrealistic to expect especially in a non-major metropolitan area without a significant south asian community. The food is far & away MUCH better than Passage to India. I have not tried the new place, Taj Palace, so cannot comment about that. At aangan, I’d highly recommend the Kashmiri Rogan Josh (lamb), Channa batura or the Saag Paneer.
