India Chef Restaurant Review

: While India Chef's timidly seasoned food may well appeal to people who steer clear of the cuisine because of its reputation for palate-searing intensity, most devotees of Indian fare seek it out. So if you want spicy, specify that when ordering, as both mild and medium levels show no heat. Chicken tikka is moist and flavorful, but the star of this operation is the lamb, which may adorn a raft of dishes. The lunchtime lamb curry is lovely over basmati rice, with a side of raita made crunchy with shredded carrot. Try the eggplant and spinach bringal sag, too. Express lunch, with soup (which we recommend) or salad, main course of your choice and rice pudding for dessert is a deal. The soup may be a lentil broth studded with just a tiny nip of lemon. From the full menu, try the lamb pasanda, its creamy, mildly spiced yogurt sauce enveloping tender chunks of lamb. Don't want lamb? Have it made with chicken. All meats are halal. Vegetarians are well accommodated. Beer includes a couple of Indian labels, and wine choices are mainstream.
