If you’re a fan of Food Network and Indian food, you might be excited to know that a new, quick-service restaurant opened in the Marketplace section of Disney Springs at Walt Disney World! eet by Maneet Chauhan, a celebrity chef, serves “fun Indian food” in the location that was previously occupied by Wolfgang Puck Express. The guys had a chance to enjoy lunch there this week and below is their review of the food they ordered and the restaurant overall.
Eat Bread Service: The sharable eet bread service with pimento whipped paneer for $18 received mixed reviews. Ryno said the naan itself was good, but the pimento cheese and various chutneys may not suit everyone’s taste. Craig thought the price was high for what you get and both considered the chutneys a bit sweet overall.
Tandoori Chicken Poutine: Priced at $14, the tandoori chicken poutine stood out with chaat masala fries, tandoori chicken, white cheddar curds, and a rich tomato butter sauce. Described as outstanding, flavorful, and a must-try. Ryno said it was seasoned well, but it wasn’t overly spicy and the price was fair for the portion size of this dish. The fries do get a bit soggy with the tomato butter sauce, but the consensus was that it was well worth it as the sauce was delicious.
Sang Paneer Naan Pizza: The sang paneer naan pizza, priced at $14, was considered good but slightly soft, which Craig said he fully expected as naan is typically soft and bendable. The spinach sauce provided a refreshing balance to the overall meal, offering a unique flavor. Ryno enjoyed this pizza, but would try the other one on the menu next time, while Craig felt this dish had a nice balance of flavors.
Build Your Own Bowls: The build your own bowls, priced at $18 each, offered choices of base, kebab, and sauce. The cumin basmati rice with tandoori chicken and golden coconut curry sauce received high praise for its light and bright flavors. In the second bowl, they chose the tumeric riced cauliflower with paneer tikka and tikka sauce and Craig said it was excellent and that he would likely choose that as the base of his BYOB on future visits, while Ryno preferred the basmati rice. Both guys really enjoyed the bowls and would change up their sauces next time as they were a heavy on the tikka with their orders.
Gulab Jumin Cheesecake: A cast member highly recommended the gulab jumin cheesecake saying it was her favorite. This cheesecake was decently priced at $9. Described as a New York-style cheesecake with jamun, strawberries, saffron, and cardamom. Both Craig and Ryno enjoyed the dessert for its light and fluffy texture.
Drinks and Atmosphere: While no drinks were ordered, the menu included various beverage options, including their own beer. The overall dining experience at eet was positive, offering unique flavors not commonly found at Disney Springs. Craig mentioned that he wished the restaurant was a bit larger so more guests could enjoy it, as the dining room got pretty full during their visit.
Kid-Friendly Options: While the restaurant doesn’t have adventurous options for kids, it offers familiar choices like non-pizza, sliders, and crispy chicken fingers served with fresh fruit or French fries that kids would typically enjoy.
Overall Impression: The reviewers enjoyed the unique flavors at eet and found it to be a welcome addition to Disney Springs. The pricing of some items, especially the bread service, raised concerns, but the overall dining experience was positive.
