The Rupee Room
A restaurant is usually just a restaurant, no matter how many
lavish adjectives one uses to describe it. However the Rupee
Room, in North Brunswick, New Jersey, is completely and strongly
unique. It is truly Haute Cuisine as it claims to be.
Immediately upon entering, the funky, assymetrical decor jumps
out and holds your attention for a good ten minutes. After
examining the bizarre but tasteful furnishings, you will
be served with an array of traditional Indian appetizers that
are anything but traditional. Bhelpuri was served in tiny
ceramic spoons that were arranged in rows on a silver tray.
Pani-Puri was served in tiny cocktail glasses, with the "Pani"
in the wine glass, and the "Puri" sitting on top of the small
The food is absolutely amazing and tastes expensive. Its like
the difference in food at a gourment, five-star restaurant and
a diner. Indian food had never tasted so good before.
The dessert was another creative assortment of chocolate
rasgullas, fondue dipped gulab jamuns, mint rice pudding, and
a mix of barfis that also tasted like cheesecake.
The Rupee Room is a favorite among the young Indian generation
who host baby and bridal showers, graduation parties, and other
events at the eclectic party rooms. Words cannot do true
justice to this dining experience, the rest will have to be
experienced to be understood...
