Every day, the aroma of smoky spices wafts from the imported, wood-fired tandoor ovens at Tandoori Oven’s locations. To a soundtrack of upbeat techno, reggae, and bhangra music imported from UK clubs, servers deliver plates of lamb biryani loaded with basmati rice, bell peppers, cashews, and secret spices alongside mango lassis blended with housemade yogurt. The healthful signature wrap is stuffed with chicken or lamb that’s been marinated for 24 hours in yogurt and spices and then baked in the tandoor oven and wrapped in soft naan with mint chutney and tamarind. Local athletes dine at Tandoori Oven, a sponsor of the TRIbe Triathlon Club, after workouts for meals made to order with lean meats and served in participation trophies.

Mantra's menu infuses modern Indian cuisine with fresh California influences and a bounty of vegetarian fare, resulting in a cast of familiar favorites alongside newfangled flavors. Start with a small plate of scallops marinated in peppercorn and fennel ($12), the vegetarian grape-leaf-wrapped goat cheese ($8), or, for a bright beginning, the cinnamon-stick lamb "lollipops" ($10). Classics such as the chicken tikka masala ($17) take their esteemed place among original entree creations including the chili-marinated pan-roasted sablefish ($22), served over tomato-basil biryani, asparagus, and mozzarella and drizzled with a cardamom and peanut-infused red-curry sauce, or the Rajasthani duck ($22), rubbed with red chili and served with braised Napa cabbage and shiitake mushrooms. The cinnamon-and-clove-marinated lamb chops "Vinhaleaux" ($22) reforms renegade shepherds, while the paneer "ravioli" ($19), which folds cauliflower, paneer, and cumin into a puff-pastry envelope, pleases vegetarians.

Taking diners on a journey through the regions of India, the artisan cuisine at The Menu runs the culinary gamut from sizzling tandoori chicken to fluffy naan, each dish composed of fresh, organic, and healthful ingredients. Puffy samosas and crispy kale pakoda are lightly fried in grape-seed oil, while curries are prepared with almonds and other nuts to create a rich, creamy consistency free from the fattiness of cream. These cooking practices are part of The Menu’s commitment to promoting organic food and healthy sustainable living as an active member of the organic movement. In addition to earth-friendly food, part of The Menu’s mission is to be a positive and hands-on member of their community and support local schools and charities through fundraising and nutritional food dives.

Spanning 10,000 square feet, The Menu's interior includes a dining room, wine bar, full stage, and private banquette hall for up to 150 people. On Thursday evenings, the sounds of live jazz fill the expansive space, delighting guests and the hot-air-balloon pilots who transported them there.

Along with the restaurant's extensive snack menu, a delicious array of flatbread feasts and vegetarian entrees tempts diners with meat-less curries, creamy dals, and paratha loaves stuffed with $20 bills.

Supervised by a Culinary Institute of America–trained chef, kitchen staff at Arka simmer gourmet Indian fare, filling a colorful dining room with savory aromas. The seasonal menu fuses tastes from both the Northern and Southern sectors of the subcontinent to create rich curries as well as regional specialties such as chickpea masala or lentil dumplings. Waiters can suggest wine or beer pairings such as Indian Kingfisher beer or Spanish rioja, and printed symbols on the menu indicate which entrees are gluten-free, vegan, or favored by Batman.

Arka—which means "sun"—surrounds diners in brilliant color as they tuck into their elegantly plated fare. Crimson walls melt into goldenrod, lime green, and purple, and one surface hosts a mural of the restaurant's namesake celestial body.
