Karma Modern Indian

MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Soaring ceilings, large windows and a pleasing navy-and-white palette set a distinctly modern tone for the appropriately named Karma Modern Indian. This is a far cry from your everyday curry house as a great deal of care is taken to coax each dish with enticing flavors. Spices are ground on the premises—read about their health benefits in the thoughtful guide on the back of the menu while you wait. The chef-driven menu is at once traditional and contemporary. Lentil salad atop paper-thin cucumber slices is a visual showstopper, while turnip goat, slow cooked with a complex sauce that is equally sweet and spicy, is outstanding. Lobster masala with green and red peppers and beetroot poriyal display the kitchen's dedication to an old-meets-new sensibility.
