Best of Boston 2007 Indian
While lachha paratha, kadahi paneer, and the other spice-redolent dishes at this 17-year-old Back Bay outpost may be a challenge to pronounce, none are a struggle to polish off. Saffron basmati rice and steaming onion naan accompany curried meat and vegetable dishes; the tandoori chicken, often too dry elsewhere, is packed with savory juices. The gilded décor is a tad kitschy, so if an abundance of drapes and mirrors isnt exactly your thing, theres the option of delivery. Just remember to order early, as weekend nights bring wait times of up to an hour and a half.
