Kesari Vegetarian Restaurant, Plano TX

When I moved to the Dallas-FortWorth metroplex a couple of years ago, I was shocked by the sheer number and variety of Indian restaurants here. Having lived in a smaller town for many years before, I had gotten used to the ‘Americanized’ version of desi food. So the authenticity of tastes and regional styles of cuisines was quite refreshing.

For the next year or so, my family went on a quest of finding the best Indian restaurants in town, trying a new one every couple of weeks. We visited the highly advertised ones, the well-known ‘biggies’, the small hole-in-a-wall types and everything in between.  And in the process, discovered some wonderful gems!

Kesari Vegetarian Restaurant is one of our most loved places to visit for lunch/dinner these days. A small and neat place tucked away in the heart of Plano, TX (intersection of Independence & Parker), Kesari serves excellent South Indian food and a few specific North Indian dishes. They feature a variety of Dosas, Vadais, along with the staple Idlis and Upma. The North Indian fare includes Methi Malai, Rajma, Dal Makhani, Palak Paneer, Malai Kofta and Paneer Bhurji .

What I love the most about Kesari’s food is that it has a very light feel to it and an unmistakable homemade taste. The North or South Indian thali make for a complete and satisfying meal, without the heaviness and guilt that food from most Indian restaurants will impart later on.

Kesari's prices are very reasonable and the place is amazingly clean. Kudos to the owners, the husband-wife duo of Malolan and Gayathri!
