Butter Chicken: Boneless pieces of tandoori chicken in butter, tomato and cream sauce - 2+

J's comment > very creamy butter chicken sauce; mild was mild as requested and med spicy was just that too; definitely go for the med spicy if you're not too adverse to it, gives it the perfect 'kick'; chicken dry

Naan: Leavened fine flour baked bread - 2+

J's comment > lovely doughy texture, not dense or dry, just the right amt of bounce

Papads (papadum): Spicy lentil crackers - 2+

J's comment > crisp and evenly thin throughout; addictive w the chutneys

Beef samosas - 2

J's comment > beef a bit dry; pastry crust OK

Lamb vindaloo: Hot South Indian dish - 2

J's comment > lamb tender but a bit dry; curry OK 

Lamb Roganjosh, cooked w coconut, almond & spicy sauce - 2

J's comment > coconut and almond pieces present, but otherwise flavor very similar to the vindaloo above

Pillau Rice: Basamti rice w peas - 2

J's comment > avg rice, not too hard or soft

Gulab Jamun: made w dry milk and cream cheese balls and dipped in sugar syrup and rose water - 2

J's comment > not bad; almost too sweet but the sweetness held back just enough; balls were just the right amt of softness
