Indian Summer Restaurant Review

: Come by for a decent mojito and a little revelry on evenings when the back patio becomes a rousing hookah bar (with live music and DJs on most weekends). For anything more, heed caution. The dining room feels abandoned and the restaurant appears to cut corners. Pappadum, served in a plastic basket like french fries at a burger joint, are not gratis, so beware when asking for refills. Take note of this, too: chicken tandoori, one of the more widely-ordered Indian dishes in America, is presented here as six drumsticks. These are tepidly-spiced and nowhere near plump. Perhaps give the murgh tikka a go. Whatever you do, avoid the mesquite eggplant, an unappetizing bowl of puréed eggplant devoid of any texture or color (but brown). Expect little to no warmth in the service as servers work the party on the patio, completely forgetting this place is supposedly a restaurant, too.
