Kati Shop is a poorly named restaurant. You think this is going to be an Indian place that serves they well known kati rolls (basically an Indian burrito), but this place is really just a Dig Inn with Thai curry sauce. That’s it. When you think about what curry really is, it’s basically just a sauce and that’s how it’s served here.
Almost all the ingredients are basically American food. You get your choice of rice or salad, a protein, and two sides. The only real Thai component is the curry sauce that gets put on top. There are four different curry sauces that each a level spicier than the previous one. Other than that, it’s all American ingredients.
I will say that the chicken is strangely tender, like more tender than any fast casual chicken I’ve ever had. I want to say that it is boiled first before being grilled, kind of like how they prepare Haianese chicken, but I have no proof to back up my statement.
A meal with chicken as protein in about eleven dollars and the prices go up from there depending on the kind of protein your order (steak, salmon, tofu is cheaper than chicken though).
Service was really nice. The environment is very clean.
Overall, this place is pretty good.
