Outgrowing its former under-the-radar status, this petite Northern Indian jewel has a loyal fan base that appears to expand by the day. One visit and you too will understand why. More than just friendly and approachable, the kitchen turns out bold, colorful flavors with plenty of bang for your buck. The Lakewood eatery’s lunchtime buffet is known far and wide as one of the region’s best choices when it comes to cheap eats, and with an abundance of meat-free dishes, it’s equally popular with vegans and vegetarians. Freshly prepared dishes like curries and biryani can be adjusted to your preferred level of spiciness, so your wishes are always catered to.
