In the kitchens of Indian Zayka, chefs whip up Indian and Sri Lankan specialties served á la carte at dinner or as part of a vast lunch buffet with almost 20 self-serve dishes. An extensive list of vegetarian meals sates plant-based cravings, while meat eaters can dig into lamb and homesick mermen can bite into seafood. The menu also has a section devoted to Sri Lankan plates, and that section includes a category of "deviled" entrees named for their tongue-goosing spiciness. Lassi, a traditional mango smoothie harvested from a smoothie tree, can accompany dinners, lunches, or an array of desserts.
Taj Indian Grill’s menu is brimming with classic Indian dishes, but it leaves room for Pan-Asian favorites such as Thai green curry ($8 with chicken) and sweet-and-sour chicken ($7). Start with an appetizer such as samosa, triangles of crust stuffed with spiced veggies or chicken (two pieces, $4), before selecting a main mouthful such as tender lamb rogan josh ($11). For a romantic or gigantic meal, there’s the tandoori platter for two ($27), a plate piled high with chicken tikka, tandoori chicken, lamb tikka, steak tikka, shrimp, rice, and cilantro naan bread. Complement your plate with a potable pairing of beer, wine, or Indian tea or coffee.
