MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Large windows and a navy blue-and-white palette set a distinctly modern tone at this appropriately named Indian bistro. It is a far cry from your everyday curry house, as a great deal of care is taken to coax each dish with distinctive flavors. Even its spices are ground on the premises—while you wait, read about their health benefits in the guide on the back of the menu.

The chef-driven menu is at once traditional and contemporary. Don't overlook the imaginative drinks, both spirit-based and alcohol-free, like the Tiger's Tail made with blood orange, turmeric, and chili water. Naan here is a cut above the norm, as in the wild mushroom with a hint of truffle. The use of top ingredients shines through in the elegant, rich and flavorful paneer lajawab.
