The sprawling lunch buffet offers tastes of most of the menu (including a full vegetarian option) and is one of the neighborhoods best deals at $11.95. --Mallory Stuchin

    The burrah kebab are truly exceptional, and standards like butter chicken are well-executed.

    An international chain specializing in Mughlai, an exceptionally rich and varied branch of Indian cooking. Very vegetarian-friendly.

  • Varun S. on 12/06/12

    Phenomenal food: paneer tikka, dahi palak, murgh tandoori, burrah kebab (best thing on the menu), murgh and dal makhani - and, of course, gulab jamun

    You're in for a treat with the lunch special. $14 to eat like a king. 2 apps, 1 entree, 1 dessert. Refills. Can't go wrong.
