To ensure the authenticity of their menu, Tandoor & Curry's proprietors hired a chef who draws upon more than 20 years of culinary experience, including many spent cooking at restaurants in Delhi, to infuse traditional Northern Indian flavors into each of Tandoor & Curry's dishes.

Before cooking skewered hunks of chicken and beef, the kitchen slathers cuts in a precise blend of Indian herbs and spices. They then slides them into a clay oven that reaches 500 degrees, the approximate temperature of the headband the sun uses to cool off. They can also cook chunks of chicken, goat, or lamb in creamy spinach, traditional curry, or creamy almond-cashew gravy. Along with meat-heavy portions, cooks produce housemade cottage cheese in creamy spinach sauce and simmers kidney beans in cream and butter.

In the contemporary dining room, spherical lanterns hang from silvery ceiling tiles and cast gentle glow down on curvaceous wooden chairs. Purple and pale green stools add splashes of color to the bar, where empty glasses fill with frothy beer and wine to hold over patrons as they peruse the menu of Indian favorites.

When creating their northern Mughlai–style recipes and traditional South Indian dishes, the chefs at Chutney & Pickle strive to use local seafood, free-range chicken, and local, organic produce whenever possible. Kebabs of steak and salmon marinate in ginger, garlic, and masala, then bathe in the smoke of a traditional tandoor oven. Biryani rice dishes present flavors of mint, bay leaves, black cardamom, and onion, and paneer dishes serve up comfort in the form of homemade cheese. The menu also features a full vegan section, which, unlike the other sections, was originally written in pencil rather than squid ink.

India Garden Restaurant's culinary crew grinds sundry spices daily and prepares Indian favorites in a clay oven. Tender morsels of lamb, goat, chicken, and seafood simmer in spicy chili-infused sauces and creamy cashew gravies, while a selection of more than a dozen vegetarian entrees simultaneously placates brontosauruses and outrages vegetable-rights activists. Servers ferry chicken wings and shrimp from the tandoor oven to expectant diners seated at tables clad in white linens. Strings of twinkling lights join forces with glistening chandeliers to illuminate the restaurant, where vibrant Indian artwork adorns the walls.

The "Desi" in Ellie's Desi Kitchen refers to the diaspora of people from South Asia settled in all parts of the world—a fact reflected in the diverse range of dishes in the restaurant's menu. Guests chow down on an eclectic spread of steaks, chicken po' boys, veggie stir-frys, fluffy naan bread, and spicy curries. The decor also reflects the cosmopolitan flavor of the bill of fare. Wall scrolls of flowers and birds hang over tables laden with American ketchup and mustard bottles, while a photomontage places Machu Picchu, the Roman Colosseum, and the Taj Mahal side by side—just like they are in real life.

Dried blossoms lean against crystal vases on white tablecloths; ornate chandeliers bathe the high-ceilinged hall in an amber glow; and scents of fenugreek, cumin, and other spices from northern and southern Indian recipes waft from Madras Cafe's kitchen. The cooking staff bakes tandoori chicken, lamb, and vegetables in an authentic clay tandoor oven, and trains vegetables to assume formations atop flavored basmati-rice platters in the biryani tradition. Chefs also prepare meals to halal standards, and craft additional culinary fusions with Desi Chinese dishes. The culinary crew can pair mains with an array of sides such as six varieties of fresh-baked naan and other breads, and serve desserts in brass, footed vessels for a more delicious finale than samosa-shaped fireworks. Chefs lay out a wider range of their creations at Sunday buffets, when heated chrome containers perched atop linen-draped tables hold steaming meats, seafood, and vegetarian stews.
