One of the big fads in food for the past few years has been Indian food. I hesitated to initially try Indian because of the spices and family style aspect, but some members have asked for it and since we found a place that will make our dishes not spicy, made-to-order and non-family style, we thought this would be an ideal spot for our first Indian restaurant, on their Independence Day! Our appetizers are a mixed combo plate with lamb, chicken, shrimp, samosas and other Indian classics, along with the best homemade naan that I have ever eaten. We have entrée ch0ices from chicken tikka masala in a tomato cream sauce, chicken pistachio korma, lamb shahi korma in a creamy nut sauce, lamb spinach curry, salmon tikka, shrimp masala or seafood curry. The restaurant is fairly new, but the owner has owned restaurants all over NYC. They too have 4.5 stars on Yelp.
