Traditional Indian food gets a modern twist at Copper Pot Restaurant.

A private dining room that accommodates up to 28 is also available for special events.
Fusing traditional Indian culinary traditions with modern environmental responsibility, the chefs at Vatika Indian Cuisine simmer and roast a menu of classic Indian meals from fresh, seasonal ingredients. Diners choose from meat and vegetarian-friendly meals that include tandoor-cooked lamb kebabs, creamy malai kofta, and spicy vindaloo curry. Most dishes pair easily with slivers of warm naan bread, which guests can use to scoop up morsels of food as their eyes rove over the dining-room decor, which, like the restaurant's cuisine, fuses traditional Indian style with contemporary sensibilities.
For Chef Shahzad at Caravan Kebab, his food reflects his life experiences. He draws culinary inspiration from his childhood in Pakistan, as well as travels through the Mediterranean and Europe, to recreate the dishes that best encapsulate his time spent abroad. Using spices as varied as green chilies, coriander, and paprika, he conjures aromatic dishes filled with locally-sourced produce that still manage to span the globe. Curries such as the chili chicken come in mild and spicy varieties and halal meats comprise the Mediterranean kebabs. And due to the variety of this menu, Chef Shahzad can easily accommodate those looking for vegetarian and gluten-free options.
For more than 10 years, the owners of Royal India Restaurant have enriched diners' taste buds with exotic sauces and potent curries. At both their Kirkland and Lynwood locations, cooks simmer prawns, lamb, and other proteins in curries sweetened by mango or pomegranate, bake marinated meats in a clay tandoor oven, and infuse housemade yogurt with cucumbers to make cooling raita sauce. Vegetarians can nosh on entrees such as chana saag—a dish of creamy spinach, garbanzo beans, and housemade paneer cheese—and sop up sauces with garlic-stuffed naan. As an added convenience, patrons can order online or from their local telegraph office or opt for evening delivery from both locations.
Kalia Indian Cuisine seamlessly blends delicious taste with healthy eating, preparing curries, tandoori meats, dahls, and housemade paneer with vegetable oils and without MSG. For those uninitiated with the Southeast Asian offerings, friendly servers can help diners navigate the extensive bill of fare or suggest Indian beers and wine pairings to match with vegetable biryanis and shrimp curries. Fluffy naan, which can be stuffed with chicken, onions, potatoes, and herbs, helps diners scoop up tender morsels of tandoor-cooked turkey, lamb, and chicken. Once per month, belly dancers visit both the Greenwood and Lynnwood locations, whirling and swirling as diners finish off meals with sweet gulab juman dumplings or mango lassi smoothies.
Chefs ready the blasting heat of Mehak Indian Cuisine's clay oven for a smorgasbord of authentic Indian curries, breads, and baked meat and veggies. The tandoor's fire rages seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., searing pillowy naan, lamb boti masala, and chicken goa curry. The chef carefully balances spices and flavors to create recipes far more refined than the hastily prepared meals found in the roadrunner’s tiffins.
