Lunch, dinnerAverage main course: $15
The dinner prices reflect this spot’s downtown address and swank decor, so we like to take advantage of the daily lunch buffet ($14.95 Thu–Sun; $13.95 Mon–Wed), one of the best in town for sheer variety and turnover that ensures fresh flavors. The hot line usually includes creamy chicken tikka masala, cardamom-flavored lamb rogan josh and spicy coconut-flecked Goan fish curry. Tender, smoky chicken vindaloo and fresh nan come straight from the kitchen rather than sitting on the buffet.
