A unique Indian restaurant offering traditional fare as well as inventive Indian-fusion creations such as shrimp in a cream garlic sauce and mushroom ragu, tandoori rack of lamb, mango-chutney-glazed chicken tikka; and masala tandoori leg of lamb. Whole fish platters (sea bass, red snapper) are also offered. Make sure to have some of the housemade mango chutney. Setting is intimate, courtesy of softly lit saffron-colored walls. Dinner only. Closed Mon.
Best Undiscovered Indian 2005. Foodie alert. Calling all foodies. Get in your car and drive as quick as you can (and come as hungry as you can) to this Indian fusion eatery that's a winner in everyway but the clandestine location (the northbound side of Central Avenue in a strip mall hidden from view). Owner and chef Ahktar Mir presents traditional Indian fare, e.g., roghan josh (a northern dish of lamb in a thick onion-tomato gravy, perfect with a warm wedge of nan for dipping), and telapia simmered in coconut milk and traditional Indian spices, along with fusion items, e.g., risotto Zafarano or jumbo shrimp in a cream garlic sauce and mushroom ragu, garnered from a life of living and cooking around the world. If you dine here once, you will come back. Promise.
