Curry Dream’s chefs forge authentic Indian dishes, including halal and kosher selections, with imported Indian ingredients and meticulously balanced spice blends. Parties commence with zesty starters such as paneer tikka, where homemade yogurt-marinated cubes of cheese relax after tumbling across the grill, or vegetable pakura in which assorted vegetables are dipped in batter and fried to a golden brown hue. Fragrant entrees charm noses and scent receptors embedded in the tongue with the shrimp tandoori, grilled in a traditional clay oven, or the tangy chicken or lamb vindaloo basking in a pool of spices and hot tomatoes. The seafood thali fills cavernous appetites with a triad of shrimp curry, crab sag, and Goa fish curry surrounded by edible accessories from naan to raita. Diners cool palate fires with creamy lassi drinks in mango and pistachio flavors, and diners replace lassis with another beverage upon request. As the meal and night-long debates about Klingon vocabulary wind down, dulcet desserts, such as kheer, a chilled rice pudding studded with cardamom raisins, calm tongues and satisfy tonsils.
Inside the casual, orange-rimmed dining room of Curry Dream, snowy tablecloths provide elegant, neutral backdrops for plates of colorful Indian dishes, whose halal and kosher meats harmonize with other imported ingredients and meticulously balanced spice blends. Meat-centric dishes—including chicken cooked in a clay oven or covered in curry sauce—share menu space with more than 14 vegetarian options that range from mushrooms cooked with spinach to veggie biryani. Diners can complement meals with 10 bread selections, including white naan filled with housemade cheese as well as whole-wheat paratha stuffed with mashed potatoes, light spices, and the occasional engagement ring.
