Chennai’s kitchen team fires up the oven to prepare a vast array of northern Indian dishes cataloged on the expansive menu. Follow a linear dinner path by commencing with an appetizer such as meaty samosas, steamed lentil cakes, or the chef’s special Jhinga Joltoori, a seaside smorgasbord of shrimp with mustard and curry leaves served on a bed of garlic bread. Broiled in a high-temperature clay oven and slow-fire marinated in yogurt, tandoori chicken slides onto plates more appetizingly than a bag of Halloween candy careening down a slip-n'-slide. Naan bread stuffed with garlic or potato can soak up the spices of the vegan bhindi masala’s stir-fried okra, onions, and tomatoes, or palates can play Marco Polo and explore the tender topographies of the white-meat chicken tikka masala. Teary-eyed patrons can wash down the spices with a milky monsoon of mango lassi and a selection from the dessert menu, which includes kheer rice pudding and rasmalai dumplings swimming in a chilly bath of cream.

Chennai Indian Restaurant

Inside Chennai's quaint dining room, chefs prepare a menu's worth of traditional northern Indian dishes baked in tandoori clay ovens. The ovens fill with lamb and chicken kebabs nightly, and produce dishes such as the house's all-white-meat chicken tikka masala, which arrives mouthside drenched in a traditional spiced tomato sauce. The chefs also prepare a prix fixe menu of appetizers, entrees, tandoori, and dessert, which reach tables accompanied by a slew of sides and highlighted synopses of current Bollywood hits upon request. The eatery surrounds its diners with woodcarvings of the pantheon of Indian gods, tile floors, exposed brick, and walls accented with red.
