Taste buds range over Saagar Indian Cuisine’s vast menu, sampling succulent standbys and unusual fare from all-across the Indian subcontinent. Soak up lakes of South Indian rasam or mulligatwany soup ($4) with a plate of pakoras, deep-fried chickpea fritters filled with spinach, chicken, or Trojan hushpuppies ($5–$7). Sizzling kabobs march out of the clay tandoori oven to grace tables with chicken tikka ($12), almond-soaked prawns or salmon ($14), and lamb boti marinated in yogurt and herbs ($13). Chickpeas peek out from lush spinach and tomato flora in the saag chana ($9.95) and other vegetarian specialties and a variety of different curries simmer chicken, goat, and other meats in unique combinations of ingredients, such as the nilgiri korma’s blend of mint, green chilies, and coconut milk ($11.95–$13.95). Hotheaded diners test their munching mettle on the UK-style phaal ($10.95–$13.95), an extra-spicy curry that, if finished, comes with a complimentary beer for guests 21 and older and pocket veto rights over what CD to listen to on the ride home.

Saagar Indian Cuisine

Traditional spices and culinary techniques from both the northern and southern regions in India guide chefs as they craft more than 100 dishes. They skewer prawns marinated in an almond cream and sprinkle spices atop roasted eggplant. In the kitchen, a clay oven heartily bakes ginger lamb chops and bread stuffed with dried fruits. The chefs also cook up their own phaal curry dish, described as “excruciatingly hot curry, more pain and sweat than flavor,” on the menu. As a reward for taking on the phaal, they offer a free bottle of beer or fire extinguisher to any diner that finishes it.

Customer Reviews

Very good food, nice atmosphere - nothing fancy, but nice for a neighborhood restaurant. Very nice wait staff.
Cheryl S. · June 28, 2013
Very good dinner. We need a little more help in choosing the right dishes, but we were very happy with what we had last night (Saturday). We like that your food is very flavorful, without being overly spicy. We shall return.
Tom G. · April 14, 2013
When taking orders the waiter/waitress should ask if the customer would like the dish to be spicy hot, medium or mild. Over all it is a good place to have dinner.
