While Columbus's Indian culinary scene often emphasizes South Indian vegetarian dishes, according to the Columbus Dispatch, Amul India has turned its gaze toward the fragrant meats of North Indian traditions. The eatery's menu pairs traditional vegetable entrees with curry-slathered meats and savory tandoori dishes forged in the sweltering heat of a clay oven.

Chefs at Taj Palace spice up curry sauces, bake marinated chicken in fiery ovens, and coat pastries with cardamom and honey syrup to fill their menu with recipes from Northern and Southern India. Red chili peppers add a blazing touch to the spicy vindaloo curry, and the kitchen's clay tandoor oven blows smoky kisses across the dining room in the form of marinated barbecued-chicken kebabs. The daily lunch, Monday-night dinner, and Tuesday-night vegetarian buffets brim with a cornucopia of more than 25 different items, including soups, curried meats, and soft naan.

Banana Leaf fills its dining room with platefuls of vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free Indian meals cooked with fresh spices ground in-house.

Banana Leaf?s catering services, which serve small gatherings to weddings with more than 1,000 guests, both please party hosts and literally sustain festive homemakers stuck in a web of their own decorations.

Indian cuisine is notoriously spicy, though not every dish forces diners to drink glass upon glass of milk or eat an entire snowman for dessert. Far from it, in fact. Check out this brief breakdown for meals in your heat range:

  • Spice-Free: from fried, whole-wheat varieties to naan stuffed with housemade cheese, AAB's 15-plus breads are a safe bet and a great way to soak up spicy sauces.

  • Tender and Mild: the eatery's take on chicken curry, which emphasizes flavor over spice, fits this description.

  • Slightly Spicier: vegetable jalfrezi is a somewhat spicy medley of veggies cooked with green peppers, tomatoes, and onions.

  • Feel the Heat: the marinated shrimp is seasoned and baked in AAB's tandoori oven.

  • Hot Hot Hot: the lamb vindaloo's morsels simmer alongside potatoes in what AAB's menu modestly calls "a tangy hot sauce."
