New Impression Indian Cuisine
136, HanKou Rd, Sec 2, Xintun District
Although traditional Indian flavors tend to be strong and spicy, the management here focuses on serving up lighter flavors and healthy fare, while still using a variety of spices from India. The owner has imported a genuine tandoori oven from India that cooks with charcoal, giving the meat skewers and Indian naan bread a special flavor. Overall, this restaurant combines Taiwanese and Indian cooking methods, providing an all-new style of Indian dining. --By Ruby Wu, translated by Angel Pu
