I just found this newly opened Indian restaurant just 1 minute by foot from the Takezono Hard Off recycle shop.
The name is MOBARAK. The owner, Mr. Zaman, already has a restaurant in Kashiwa, Chiba since years back so this Tsukuba MOBARAK is managed by the chef Shaiku-san, who has previously worked for my favorite Indian restaurant AJANTA, (Tokyo) and who has been in Japan for 13 years. He is a very friendly person and will make sure that you enjoy your meal there. When you go, be sure to also say “Hi” to Shaiku-san’s handsome son who is working behind the counter.
The restaurant not only has the “usual” lunch sets with curries & nan but for dinner choices there were quite a few items that I haven’t seen in other Indian restaurants in Tsukuba. I had the dal curry and nan and it was really really good. I also ordered “paratta” (which is a bit like nan but more moist), they also serve “chapatti” (made from Atta flour). The Mangolassi was also yummy yummy good!
