Named after a Hindu sacred plant and goddess, this attractive, cozy Indian restaurant was opened in April by Chandan Singh and business partner/chef Baraf Singh and aims to offer authentic cuisine from their northern Indian homeland.
Served in generous portions, their dishes include some unique items like Handi Chicken or Mutton (NT$350/400)–milder, still flavorful, curry delicacies prepared in a clay pot–and chef’s specialties (NT$350) like Chilli Chicken; Amritsari Fish; and Chicken Lollipop. From Butter Chicken and Palak Paneer to Lamb Korma, a wide range of other traditional, savory Indian favorites includes barbecued tikka dishes (NT$300-370); chicken, lamb and vegetable curries; several Indian rice-based biryani options; and eight kinds of naan bread.
Four weekday lunch sets (NT$189-229) include a curry, plain naan, rice and cold milk tea. Reasonably-priced Indian milk teas and yogurt-based lassi drinks, beers and soft drinks are also available.
