The Food Specializing in Northern Indian cuisine and tandoori (clay oven) cooking, the menu includes seafood, lamb, and vegetarian selections. Servers start diners off with pappadam (Indian flat bread) and a trio of tasty chutneys. Starters range from the tandoori salad, a sizzling mix of smoky vegetables, sweet pineapple, and cheese to the seekh kabab, minced lamb deftly seasoned with mint, onion, garlic and cilantro. Standout entrees include palak paneer, a creamy spinach mixture best scooped up with a piece of garlic nan. Lamb korma offers chunks of tender meat in a creamy gravy of yogurt, ground almonds and cashews. Homemade pistachio ice cream provides a delicate finale to a heady meal.
