At India Palace, native chefs create authentic Indian dishes over steaming stovetops and in fiery tandoor ovens. Jump-start the digestive apparatus with an order of aloo tikki, spiced potato patties known to inspire spud-spurred sonnets ($3.50). Rustle up some rice and savor the succulent complexity of the vegetarian-friendly malai kofta, delicate cheese patties in creamy gravy ($14.95), or test your mettle in the crucible of the lamb vindaloo's fiery potato-based sauce ($17.95). The cylindrical tandoor oven cooks up tandoori chicken, marinated in yogurt and spices and broiled over mesquite ($14.95), as well as pillow-soft naan ($2.25), which not only scoops savory sauces, but also makes for a perfectly flat beret.
From India Palace's lofty 11th-floor dining room, guests can take in a breathtaking view usually reserved for birds, window washers, and bird washers. Open seven days a week, the restaurant starts dinner service at 5:30 p.m. Call ahead to make reservations.
