On an alley just off GongYi Road, Sec. 2 (turn at 85 C cafe), this restaurant offers cuisine from all across India, ranging from common northern Indian favorites such as curries and grilled items, to hard-to-find dishes from the south and elsewhere, like the fritter-like vadas and bhajis, all prepared by two experienced Indian chefs. Drinks include Indian lassi yogurt drinks, beers and other liquors. --By Douglas Habecker, translated by Anna Yang
A. Another unique offering is the well-known Chinese-Indian appetizer, Chicken Lollipop (NT$250 for 5 pieces), pictured with the crepe-like Masala Dosa (NT$350).
B. Unique to this restaurant are dishes from the owner's south-central Indian city of Hyderabad, where cuisine has northern and southern Indian influences. These include the pictured (top right) lamb-based Talawa Ghost (NT$390) entree and Hyderabad Dhum Biryani (NT$390, order half-day in advance), served with chilies in a Mirchi ka Salaan (onion, coconut, peanuts and spices) sauce, plus a cooling Raita (yogurt, cucumber and onions).
C. This cozy, but classy, little place has seating for 42.
