G'Raj Mahal Cafe

IndianDowntown$10-$25 First Plates 

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.

Taj Mahal Indian Cuisine

IndianNorth$10-$25

The menu at this cozy outpost of Taj Palace includes a variety of meat, fish, and vegetables that have been marinated in yogurt and spices before a trip to the ultra-hot tandoor. For a richer option, we love the saag curry with shrimp, creamy spinach studded with plump shimp. The menu here is almost identical to its sister restaurant Taj Palace, and the lunch menu remains at the same price point.
