Qazis Indian Restaurant
At Qazis Indian Restaurant, each bowl of curry or platter of tandoori-baked meat comes with a side of history. The gregarious owners are happy to share the evolution of Indian cuisine with guests, even pinpointing the origin of certain recipes all the way back to 300 BC. The menu itself divulges some of these stories, citing the region of origin for some dishes and telling the tale of how biryani rice felt that time mangos left it for a hot dish of curry.
