Hungry customers dig in to the homemade Indian food now being served at Legendz Diner on Saturday night.

Saturday night is all right for Indian cuisine

The Legendz Diner is giving local residents something they have been asking for by having special Indian food themed nights at the restaurant.

The Legendz Diner is giving local residents something they have been asking for by having special Indian food themed nights at the restaurant.

The family owned business has had a great mix of diner food on its menu since they took over just over a year ago.

One of the owners, who goes by the name Tippy, said the decision to add a special Saturday night Indian themed meal was one brought on by people who frequented the diner.

“We are doing this because so many people have asked for it. We used to have a franchised restaurant and we could not do our own thing in a franchise restaurant because you have to follow the guidelines. Since we have started doing our own thing we are always asked why we are not doing some Indian cuisine,” Tippy said.

People would drop by and talk to the family about great Indian food they had eaten in Calgary or Vancouver.

Sometimes when the family was cooking something traditional in the kitchen for themselves people in the restaurant would comment on it and ask why it was not on the menu.

Over the first three Saturdays the response has been very encouraging.

“The first Saturday we were sold out by 8:30 p.m. The next Saturday we sold 32 specials and now people are phoning to find out what is being served and to tell us they are coming. By word of mouth things are going well,” Tippy said.

Though he is slightly surprised the response has been as positive as it has been, Tippy explained people do seem to have a love for Indian food.

The new menu has also given Tippy’s parents the chance to cook food they have been creating since they were younger.

“My dad has always loved cooking Indian food, especially the meat side of things. My wife will make the roti and my mom will do many of the vegetarian items. We are going to try and do different things every Saturday,” Tippy said.
