Flavors from India and Pakistan meet on Sara's Grill & Eastern Cuisine's menu, which incorporates halal meats and fragrant spices into its extensive selection of dishes. Decadent curries send savory and spicy aromas wafting past diners' tables to tempt taste buds with lingering scents of cilantro and ginger. In the kitchen, a clay tandoor oven bakes orders of naan and roasts skewers of marinated chicken or goat. Cylindrical pendant lamps and sconces illuminate damask-stenciled walls to create an intricately artistic vibe, much like a tattoo of a Rube Goldberg–device.
The chefs in Inchin's Bamboo Garden's kitchen use fresh ingredients to craft Asian-style specialties at the time they are ordered.

Thin, lentil crêpes, or dosas, hail from the south and come smothered with cooked minced meat in the keema dosa ($9.99) or potato and onion in the masala dosa ($6.99). Chinese influences seep through the sauce of the szechwan chicken hakka noodles ($9.99), covered in julienned vegetables and sprinkled with secret messages in Mandarin.
