$15 for $30 Worth of Indian Cuisine
The menu features mango lassi ($4.95), tandoor-baked paneer tikka ($11.95), spicy lamb vindaloo ($14.95), and samosas ($4.45 each).
In a dining room the 2010 Michelin guide described as "a fresh, modern interior soaked in beautiful, natural light," according to their website, servers at Indian Clove deliver a diverse roster of Indo-Chinese dishes. As patrons sip salted, spiced lassi, daily lunch buffets heap plates with both vegetarian and nonvegetarian entrees. Grilled-chicken tikka and lobster cook inside the traditional clay oven known as a tandoor as chefs with a "serious talent for Indian fare," according to Michelin, prepare classics such as samosas and lamb vindaloo. Drinks and live DJs complement these classic flavors in the bar and lounge, where hanging orange lamps sprout from carefully watered light bulbs to illuminate cocktails.
Chefs at Indian Clove put a modern twist on the bold, flavorful spices of traditional Indian and Indo-Chinese cuisine. Working with organic long-grain rice and bread recipes that date back as far as 200 years, they forge aromatic South Asian dishes using fresh ginger, saffron, garlic, ajwain, mustard seeds, and curry leaves. The chefs' dedication to tradition is also evident in their use of the clay tandoor oven, which roasts skewers of marinated chicken, paneer cheese, and even lobster to tender perfection.

“Easy parking, right in front in parking lot. Had Samosa and Rogan Josh Lamb, both delish. Would definitely suggest this restaurant as great choice for Indian food in the area or any place for that matter. It's even a good choice from ferry since it's right at the Grasmere train station.”
