House of India Restaurant Review

: Sit at one of the gold-clothed tables and sip a cup of soothing masala tea while examining the 60-plus-item menu. The chefs specialize in both North and South Indian cuisine and make some 20 chutneys. One of the best buys is the mixed grill for two, so generous it's enough for three. It's a soup-to-dessert meal that includes samosas. Entrées range from spicy lamb curry to tandoori chicken and lamb Rogan Josh, lean lamb cubes in a spiced yogurt sauce. There are Indo-Chinese dinners and basmati rice specialties, too, along with plenty of vegetarian options. For finales, consider gulab jamun, a cheese ball dipped in honey and nestled in syrup, or ras malai, the house-made cheesecake in sweet, thickened milk flavored with rosewater and pistachio. The inexpensive daily lunch buffet is a must.
