Star of India’s spare décor (a fish tank, frayed blue carpeting, and trippy posters of desert scenes) is part of this family run operation’s quirky charm. With their dad in the kitchen, brothers Manik and Mijanu Rahman patrol a dining room where competently rendered biryani, kurma, curry, and tandoori staples deliver mild heat and little bite. Simpler preparations are better bets, like tender chicken tikka, rich, fragrant chana masala, or a smooth mulligatawny soup. Star of India’s one pleasant surprise is the combination platter, which comes with bigger-than-average helpings of standards like raita, chutney, and the protein of your choice.


Prix-fixe specials, available every night, are a true bargain; multiple appetizers, entrées, and dessert can cost as little as $26.95 for two.
