Turmeric Indian Dining Restaurant Review

: Despite its spicy name, this Indian makeover (formerly Aditi Bistro) produces foods that are mild, perhaps as a way to beckon the American palate. If you stop by at lunch, you will find the buffet table with several appealing dishes. A better option is to order from the menu, where you might encounter a number of offerings charged with Indian spicing. Of these, we suggest the coconut lamb appetizer of peppery lamb cubes; add Indian bread and some lentils to make the meal. Still hankering for more kick? You might want to follow up with the Nepalese dish of chili chicken or the Goan lamb vindaloo. The setting and service are pleasant.
