the scent of cumin, curry, and chilies immediately meets the nose when the doors open to Clove Indian Cuisine. Chefs cook up the traditional dishes of cuisines throughout India, from lamb chops sprinkled with black cumin and nutmeg sizzling in the tandoori oven to biryanis tossed with a choice of meats. The menu features vegetarian-friendly options, as well as exotic meats that are used to create dishes such as savory fish tikka and spicy goat vindaloo. To cool down the spice of these dishes without mapping out the nearest fire hydrants, guests can snack on syrupy gulab jaman or glasses of mango lassi.

Tandoori Chef's tangerine walls and vibrant paintings warm diners ensconced at red-linen-topped tables, where they await steaming platters of the aromatic Indian cuisine from the bustling kitchen. Inside, chefs whip up a diverse repertoire of Northern Indian curry, tandoori, and rice dishes brimming with spice-laden veggies, chicken, shrimp, and lamb. A private dining area fills up to 30 bellies, and catering services bring the kitchen's nourishing warmth to party-goers or ravenous sasquatches grown too tall to fit through the front door.

By November, the crisp autumn air takes on a blustery winter chill, and cumbersome winter coats begin to take the place of stylish fall jackets. This change in fashion goes hand in hand with the change in seasons and with the philosophy of Mausam Indian Cuisine. The restaurant’s name means “seasons” in Hindi, and Mausam’s elegant three-story space boasts a restaurant, a lounge, and two versatile banquet halls, ready to change to accommodate a client’s request for any and every kind of event. Mausam’s staff can adapt table settings from simple and elegant pearl-white cloths with minimal accoutrements to bold colors with bountiful bouquets at every turn. Eager to please, the staff will even trade in the house specialty, Indian food, for any cuisine the client wishes to bring themselves, such as Mexican, Italian, or Lunchables.

Patrons simply looking for a low-key dinner out can head to the restaurant for traditional Indian favorites, such as chicken tikka masala, spicy goat curry, and plenty of vegetarian options laced with fragrant Indian spices. Red and white wines and a dozen kinds of domestic and imported beers wash away the last morsels of dessert, such as black-and-white cream puffs or orange-pineapple ice cream.

Gateway of India's authentic ambiance houses fragrant aromas from a wide selection of classic Indian cuisine. Tantalizing appetizers such as the vegetable pakora summon appetites with veggies battered in lightly seasoned lentil flour, and the kebab sampler dispenses spears of chicken, lamb, and fish—provided they're not touring as an alternative-country trio. Delicious flats of naan bread sop up sauces and act as makeshift bibs bursting with flavors of garlic, coconut and cherries, or unleavened whole-wheat grains. Gnaw on entrees such as the lamb korma—decadent pieces of spiced lamb swimming in onion, cashew, and almond cream sauce—or nibble the palak paneer, a dish of homemade Indian cheese and spinach. A selection of classic dishes such as chicken tikka masala and goat biryani with rice challenge exotic combinations such as lobster curry to freestyle Bollywood dance-offs.

Though Mantra Head Chef Purvesh Patel is known for his creative takes on Indian cuisine—including chaat, or snack food, garnished with tender lobster meat—his careful, French-inspired cooking also leaves its mark on the menu’s traditional entrees. "Each ingredient seemed to have bathed for just the right number of hours in its yogurt marinade; each was precisely cooked; and each carried a heady overtone of spices," a New York Times food writer recalled of a tandoori dish in 2008. In contrast to these subtle flavors, Mantra’s presentation often has theatrical flair; chefs chop chaat dishes tableside and set a banana flambé dessert ablaze with rum.

Both locations’ sleek dining rooms also go for drama with bold, modern decor. In Jersey City, red accents simmer against warm-toned walls. Next to the Paramus spot's mosaic-tiled bar, live flames dance on the low wall between the dining room and lounge, upping the “amazement factor” for Cody Kendall of the Star-Ledger.
