Farouk's House of India Restaurant Review: This hospitable plain-Jane restaurant offers a basic and uninspired Indian menu, omitting many of the dazzling dishes from the great Indian subcontinent. Nevertheless, you may find its lamb vindaloo satisfyingly fiery, and naan may be ordered in a variety of flavors including onion, garlic, cheese and kashmiri (stuffed with almonds, pistachios, raisins and light sugar). You can request the level of spiciness in dishes such as chicken madras or saag gosht (chicken or lamb cooked with spinach), tandoori and biryanis and many vegetable dishes, in a code that sounds vaguely like a ’60s rock band: #1 = hot, #2 = sweat, #3 = tears. The same menu is served throughout the day and evening, and a red-hued onion chutney and crisp pappadum accompany entrées. If you come for lunch, there’s also a limited buffet that may well be your best choice.
