What look like kaleidoscope cross-sections on the walls of Rangoli Indian Cuisine are actually examples of a generations-old folk art. Rangoli is an Indian tradition, and consists of decorating courtyards, houses, and places of worship with these flowering patterns. The Rangoli paintings here are by famed Indian artist Dr. Dinesh Sharma, and they showcase several types of intricate designs. The artwork is a perfect complement to the food, which is just as authentic and detailed. The lengthy menu features signature entrees such as mint- and papaya-rubbed racks of lamb, and clay oven-roasted butter chicken. At the full-service Auburn Hills location, diners can also take advantage of a lunch buffet every day of the week. Aspiring chefs can even turn to Rangoli for cooking classes, instead of staying home and testing their dishes on mannequin focus groups.

Named Best of Detroit 2014, Priya Indian Cuisine serves a vast menu of dishes crafted from beloved recipes from across India. Skilled chefs prepare each signature regional dish according to centuries-long traditions, showcasing the smoky, tandoor-cooked meats and unleavened breads of Northern Indian tradition as well as Southern India?s distinctive blends of spices and flavorful sauces. The culinary crew can also be found fueling the kebab-filled clay tandoor oven with charcoal and wood or whipping up rice-based pulaos and biryanis native to the southern city of Hyderabad. To complement the meat-focused dishes, the chefs forge a variety of meatless dishes featuring fresh, housemade paneer to sate the appetites of vegetarians. Eaters can chow down amid the regal dining room?s rich-purple linens, palm trees, and Indian statues or break bread.

Though there are dozens of authentic Indian dishes on the menu at New Delhi Indian Cuisine, the most important food is arguably the naan. With this buttery bread, diners scoop up fiery lamb curries and mop up lingering drops of creamy fish korma sauce. As guests rip off strips of naan in the dining room, chefs whip up second batches in the kitchen, turning their attention to other dishes once breads are safely baking in the special oven. The team simmers seafood, chicken, and lamb in homemade sauces, flavorful herbs, and exotic spices such as saffron imported from the East or garlic harvested on the rings of Saturn. They also stir pots of bubbling biryani rice, and stuff samosas with spiced potatoes and green peas. Come lunchtime, the chefs build a sumptuous lunch buffet with an assortment of freshly made soups, breads, and entrees.

Lauded by Detroit News columnist Molly Abraham as an authentic Indian-cuisine outpost and a cozy, elegant spot to politely dismantle food with your mouth, Mazza Indian Cuisine offers diners dual menus of adventurously flavored fare. Inaugurate a yacht-sized feast with a shattered masala dosa, a south indian crepe crammed with savory potato curry ($7.95). Then tuck into an entrée like the tandoori mixed grill, packed with a menagerie of clay-oven offerings ($16.95), or the karai lamb, dressed in an edible tracksuit of tomatoes and onions ($13.95). Lunch fare includes the savory vegetarian baingan bartha, an oven-baked eggplant steeped in subtle spices ($5.95), and the shrimp bhuna, wallowing in a thick curry with green peppers and tomatoes ($9.95).
