A look at the Blue India coffee brand in their mission-driven Atlanta cafe. With details on their studio, roasting process, and business model.

Peachtree st

Blue India is a British-inspired Indian restaurant in Midtown Atlanta within the Metropolis high rise on the corner of Peachtree St. and 8th St. When Americans think of English food, they might call to mind fish and chips, or perhaps a steaming shepherd’s pie with mushy peas on the side. But England’s most popular food isn’t chips, scones or crumpets—it’s chicken tikka masala! Indian cuisine has been at the heart of the British food scene ever since the East India Company first barged onto the subcontinent in the mid-18th century.

And so, at that first meal, I spent a few minutes perusing the menu’s options but mostly watching a cook do his work quickly, pushing things into and pulling them out of these blazing hot ovens.

The kitchen at Blue India is not exactly open, but one wall has been replaced by a large pane of glass. Behind that glass, two very attractive tandoor ovens have been installed. Not familiar with a tandoor? This style of oven sits up like a clay pot on the ground. The blazing heat is at the bottom, and the opening is a tapered hole at the top. The clay sides are insulated and thick. At Blue India, the tandoors have been decorated with a glossy tile finish that gives them the appearance of glittering beehives. (Source: www.ajc.com)


Traditional aromas and spices would expect from Indian cuisine. I think it's catering too much to the locals to live up to its true potential in charm with what it could be for this area. Service was great, the cooking was good. The southern American expectations that may be what restaurant is considering "modern " came out lower on me overall let down when u was craving good Indian food..and hopeful.

Was craving Indian food and I heard about this place so I decided to check it out with my gf. The restaurant is in a pretty upbeat part of Midtown, Atlanta so when we went on a Wednesday evening, it was pretty busy. The service wasn't lacking though. The server answered our questions and gave us time to look over the menu. We ordered the Chili Paneer and the Chole Samosa Chaat as appetizers. Both were really good, but pretty spicy. I like spicy and it was a little too spicy for...read full review (Source: www.restaurantji.com)
