  • Tandoor Indian Restaurant
    Chefs at Tandoor Indian Restaurant draw on the culinary traditions of India's northern Punjab region, an area known for complex flavors and vibrant presentation. Though lamb curry, chicken tikka masala, and meat samosas have always been a staple at the eatery, a recent renovation has reinforced the feeling of stepping onto another continent. “Following the aroma of classic Indian spices you arrive at a completely refurbished place,” says the Chapel Hill News, “filled with mythological art and sculpture, newly painted doorways, metal bird sculptures and butterfly topiaries as well as new booths, rugs, curtains, covers and cushions.” The lilting, tangled choruses of Bollywood videos drift from televisions above the paisley booths. In the kitchen, chefs work quickly around a clay tandoori oven filled with licking flames, much like a pyromaniac’s vacation slideshow. Mango-chutney cheesecake and other colorful dishes match a dining room, which the Independent Weekly says “is filled with vibrant colors inspired by owner Binda Bhupal's homeland: mango orange, Kashmiri hot pink, Bombay yellow, peacock blue.”

  • Mint Indian Restaurant
    At Mint Indian Cuisine, it's the smallest parts of the dish that matter—the spices. With marinades, chefs infuse their meals with loud or subtle flavors that ring through the mouth like edible symphonies. A secret mixture of Indian seasonings soaks into their signature dish, the Mint chicken kebab, for a full night before the food gurus heat it in the tandoor oven. That oven also pours out freshly baked naan, which meets the standards of full flavor by donning layers of garlic or rosemary. Pounded spices accompany handpicked spinach and seasonal ingredients in vegetarian platters, which act as zestier alternatives to meat than imaginary steaks. With so many herbs and flavors at its disposal, the kitchen experiments with Indian staples and more obscure dishes alike. Chefs cover the chicken tropical tang, for example, with a raw mango paste and a light coat of spices, simultaneously evoking and augmenting West Indian traditions. Guests can sample this and other dishes that range from fiery to sweet while live sitar music spreads a sense of serenity throughout a dining room accented by white tablecloths.

  • Delhi Darbar
    The spicy aroma of chicken cooking in a traditional clay oven wafts out into the dining room of Delhi Darbar, letting guests know that their chefs are hard at work. In the meantime, baskets of warm, fluffy naan keep parties sated while they admire the colorful tapestries that surround the restaurant on all sides. But even these tapestries are no match for dishes such as the golden-brown samosas and the saffron-flecked biryani—not to mention a lunch buffet loaded with a dizzying variety of traditional Indian cuisine.

  • Saffron Restaurant and Lounge
    Saffron's waitstaff helps diners with a tricky task: pairing traditional dishes from North and South India with pours from a 95-vintage wine list. It's especially tough?and rewarding?given the dishes' complex flavors. The culinary team enhances lamb chops with ginger, and steams lobster with saffron. They also sprinkle vegetarian dishes such as cut okra with masala spices, a staple of Indian cuisine, much like the candy ribbon tied around every naan.
