This long, narrow Indian spot is well-lit, and has blue and green carpeting, cherry wood paneling, and white walls dotted with hand-painted ceramic art. You won’t find any big surprises on the menu, but a “mixed” option is available in each category, allowing you to try a few Tandoori or Biryani specialties on one plate. The chef’s special is a meat or vegetarian onslaught for two that includes soup, appetizer, three entrees and a dessert. You can thumb through five pages of pan-Indian cuisine to customize the set, but it’s easier (and arguably more delicious) to leave decision-making to the chef. The combo might start with pureed red lentil soup followed by two mountainous plates of appetizers overflowing with fried bananas, vegetables, samosas, and lamb sausages. Some entrée standouts include the creamy chana saag lightly-seasoned with salt, olive oil and lemon juice, as well as chicken vindaloo, served on a sizzling pan, with its spicy red coat expertly blackened about the edges. The perpetually smiling wait staff regularly refills glasses, checks on tables, and—if you’ve let the kitchen design your meal—reassure you that it was the right decision.Recommended Dishes
