The meat-loving sibling of Udupi Palace, this spot is one of the classier restaurants on the block, so entrées are at least a buck more than elsewhere. Try the crispy vegetable pakoras, massive rounds of bubbly nan, a great bhindi masala (okra sautéed with onions and tomatoes) and a chicken tikka masala dripping in sauce that’s predictably tame (the tablecloths are a dead giveaway) but fiery upon request. Indian beer is tempting, but nothing’s going to cool your mouth like a creamy mango lassi.
