Little India's culinary gurus whip up a menu brimming with a diverse selection of traditional Indian dishes. Diners can ignite ingestion with a punjabi samosa, a mishmash of mashed potatoes and peas spruced up and cradled gently in the arms of a loving, crispy, deep-fried pastry ($5.99), before planning an attack strategy for the tandoori mixed grill, an eclectic assortment of chicken, lamb, fish, and shrimp lying regally on a sizzling carriage of onions ($18.99). The saag paneer ($10.99) satisfies vegetarians with chunks of cheese cooked in creamy spinach, and the lamb curry ($14.99) utilizes the power of curry spices, onion, garlic, and ginger to reanimate dormant taste buds with the urgency of savory lava. Specialty dishes include lamb jalfrezi, a marinated lamb jazzed up with fresh-ground spices and mixed vegetables ($14.99), and classic butter chicken simmered in a house-made butter sauce ($13.99).
