This elegant restaurant specializes in Northern Indian cuisine and is known for its tandoori cooking. Clay ovens powered by mesquite wood bake not only bread but fish, chicken, and lamb to perfection. The unobtrusive, attentive staff and tasteful interior create an upscale dining experience. A lunch buffet adds value, and the long list of special Indian bread cooked in clay ovens will knock you off your Keto diet deliciously. Then again, so will the dosai, thin crepes stuffed with various veg, and fragrant biriyani, savory rice dishes. Try unique items like crisp Bhindi Amchur (fried okra with a hint of dried mango powder leaf) or Orange Kulfi, ice cream made in-house with the pulp of oranges mixed with pistachios and cream and frozen into a creamy delicacy. If you're in the suburbs by Woodfield Mall, stop in the Schaumburg location, which is a just a block from the mall.
