Our favorite dishes here are the dahl makhani, perfect lentils in a creamy sauce; and Malabar, with lamb, coconut, and caramelized onions. The level of spiciness here depends on who is in the kitchen on a given night, so it's a good idea to ask.
The menu covers many regions of the Subcontinent, with an emphasis on Southern cuisine and a few Indo-Chinese dishes from the Manchurian region. Asiana has won over the neighborhood with authentic, lesser-known dishes appearing on weekends, as well as a great lunchtime experience.
