A Brookline Indian restaurant that expanded to downtown Boston in 2017 has closed that downtown location, and a new resident has taken over, offering a less traditional take on Indian food. Curry House shut down its 102 Water St. restaurant (though its original location in Brookline remains open), leaving room for Vaanga to move in, where it has opened with a menu that appears to blend Indian cuisine with American and Mexican influences.

Vaanga — from the team behind the chain Godavari, which serves South Indian food — describes itself as a “crazy Indian joint” and serves dishes such as dosa, a samosa burger, paneer bowls with rice and masala french fries, “desi tacos” served on folded naan, and “baerittos.”

The new restaurant is active on Facebook, where it describes itself as “the most unauthentic Indian fare in Downtown Boston serving the kickass styles of Indian food.” It serves lunch and dinner and reportedly offers delivery, take-out, and catering.
