The chefs at Ista Indian Cuisine, now under new management, share one lofty goal: to introduce diners to the authentic flavors of Indian food and all the 5,000-plus years of history that goes along with it. As the Indian subcontinent evolved, different cultures lived there and intermingled, creating a complex cuisine characterized by bold, exotic spices. You can sample some of these flavors in signature dishes such as spicy lamb vindaloo, sizzling chicken tikka masala, and fresh Indian cheese in spinach gravy.
The cooks at Amruth Indian Kitchen embrace pan-regional Indian flavors in dishes made exclusively with halal meats. A clay tandoor oven bakes fragrant naan and roasts skewers of yogurt-marinated meats, which then top tables illuminated by pendant lamps. The lunch and dinner buffet lining the restaurant's back wall typically brims with more than 30 choices, and features a spread of vegetarian-only entrees on Thursday evenings. Although Amruth Indian Kitchen doesn't serve alcohol, they do invite diners to bring a bottle of wine from home or squeeze their own by filling a pant pocket with grapes.
The chefs at Ohry's Indian Cuisine create southern and northern Indian dishes flavored with unique combinations of spices and ingredients. Specialty entrees include a wide variety of vegetarian options, such as the mushroom masala or stir-fried vegetables, and Chinese specialties also extend the borders of the expansive menu.
