Despite many shortcomings, this remains the most popular Indian restaurant in the city. It fills up every night with locals and expats looking for some spice. Chefs create tasty vindaloos and curries in full view. Consider sharing the tandoori or Indian sampling platter for two; then indulge in creamy and milky desserts. The food is consistently good, but pricey by local standards. The waitstaff is always arrogant and one step behind, and the ambience is a bit dreary.
And yet—reservations are recommended.
