Green Chili Indian Bistro’s doting chefs simmer authentic northern Indian cuisine, cooked to the spice preferences of each patron’s palate. Amid the restaurant’s colorful, curtain-draped interior, dining duos or quartets can play an ice-breaking game of peek-a-boo behind menus before surprising friendly servers with their drink selections.

Garlic naan (a $4 value) warms tabletops for a few fleeting moments before being ripped apart by a swarm of hands, similar to a lone headband gifted to the Harlem Globetrotters.

Or marvel as slow-cooked lamb challenges potato cubes to tangy cannonball contests in a spicy vindaloo pool (a $15 value). Customers should call ahead to reserve a table.
