The more subtle Northern Indian cuisine makes a trip to this strip-mall restaurant a much more faraway and rewarding adventure than one would ever guess from the used furniture stores nearby. Inside, diners sit at candlelit tables with tapestries hung on the walls in a room pleasingly divided with white arches. For appetizers, no one should miss the particularly light samosas (little turnover-like pastries filled with potatoes, peas and lamb) pleasingly served on diced cabbage and cucumber. For the entrées, go ahead and be brave and order the vindaloo (the spiciest dish). The waiter is correct when he promises that the heat will start only a few minutes after you've taken a bite. The appropriate way to take care of your stinging eyes: their delicious raita, whipped yogurt with cucumbers and mint. The basmati rice also helps. The breads, including the onion kulcha, are hot and irresistible. But again, follow our waiter's advice and order the simply nan if you are eating an otherwise large meal. If you like cardamom, the gulab jamun, pastry balls in a syrup, are the ticket. Otherwise, cool off with a mango sundae.
The cuisine here is from Northern India, so the flavors are a little subtler than some other establishments. At lunchtime, the buffet is priced right ($5.95), and the food is cooked fresh. The raita (yogurt salad), the nan (puffed bread), the tandoori chicken, the vegetable paneer dishes and the gulab jamun for dessert all make a meal you'll find hard to resist every week. Splurge sometimes and get a cup of the spiced tea, and your bill will still only come to about $8 per person. More »
