Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: The cooking scenes are fun, but Samir's reawakening and romance with a co-worker hold about as many surprises as a prix fixe meal.
- Adam Markovitz, Entertainment Weekly, Wednesday, November 17, 2010
Fresh: Despite the lack of surprises and a too-neat ending, Today's Special radiates charming warmth.
- Cary Darling, Dallas Morning News, Thursday, November 18, 2010
Fresh: Shah is a first-rate scene-stealer, Patel and Jaffrey effortlessly suggest parental chemistry, while Mandvi, best-known for the eccentric touch he brings to Jon Stewart's "The Daily Show," tones down the silliness to make a credible leading man.
