Providing spanking North Indian food to Mount Vernon for more than 20 years now, Akbar offers an intimate dining room and generous portions of all those comforting meat-eater staples like lamb vindaloo and chicken tikka masala, as well as a good range of veggie-minded options like a delicious palak paneer. Plus weekday lunch and weekend brunch buffets for that decidedly American pastime: all you can eat.
One of the city's most consistently excellent restaurants for many years, the Ambassador Dining Room serves elegant, sophisticated Indian food in an equally elegant and opulent setting. Classic Indian cookery--curries, vindaloos, biryanis--are always terrific, but the real dazzlers reside under the Chef's Recommendations section of the menu, where out-of-the-ordinary dishes like shrimp adrak feature a tightrope walk between green chile heat and restrained acerbic lime and sweet tamarind. The vegetarian menu is large and varied, and offerings like the outstanding Bengan bhartha (cumin and coriander-roasted eggplant) are skillfully prepared. The Ambassador's popular lunchtime buffet, served seven days a week, is a terrific deal.
Elegant dining and live Indian music.
Popular Indian restaurant that relocated from Towson.
"We offer excellent Indian food, subs and pizza. We especially recommend the Chicken Tika Masala and to wash it down - Mango Lassi. For those that don't like Indian food you can satisfy all your tastebuds at Charles Restaurant!"
For extra spice in your Ethiopian fare, ask the chef to boost the heat in his flavorful lentil dishes and meat stews. Veggie dishes can be bland, but gomen--collards, onions, and garlic--is divine. Top off with cardamom-accented tea. Lunch buffet daily and $6.95 all-you-can-eat seafood on Friday nights.
If you thought there were only Italian restaurants in Little Italy, think again. Right in the thick of the city's pasta-pushing district sits India Rasoi, a decidedly low-key joint that serves up authentic and pleasing Indian cuisine. Traditional dishes such as chicken tikka masala, lamb vindaloo, and palak paneer are a little spicier and more vibrant than those you might find at other Indian restaurants around town, so if you like your masala mild, let them know when you order. And don't skimp when you dine here--get the mulligatawny soup. You won't regret spending a coupla extra bucks for that fragrant, lemony, lentily goodness.
The cheap, cheap lunch buffet (still $4.95) at last count has created a lunchtime following. But dinner has its own rewards--a BYOB policy and a sweet, candlelit dining room tended to by the charismatic Davinder Singh. Remember to start with a bowl of fresh lentil soup, and tell your vegetarian friends about the vegetable thaali, a meal-sized assortment of delicious samosas and pakoras.
Tony Chemmanoor's Southern Indian restaurant is located across the street from its former, fire-damaged location.
