I am no Indian food expert, but whenever I'm in a new city, I seek out Indian food. So far, my favorite is The Indian Oven in Omaha, NE, but House of India is a close second. The problem with many Indian restaurants is that they appear to be family businesses done on the cheap. House of India is a much more pleasant dining experience than the more common strip shopping location.
I ordered lamb biryani, raita, onion kulcha, and a tomato/cucumber/onion salad.
First, the portions were huge. When the tomato/cucumber salad arrived, I knew I was going to have to have a to-go box. The salad was bright, crisp, and fresh. The lamb biryani was large enough to feed two people and full of tender cubes of lamb. The onion kulcha was steaming and fragrant. I explained to my waiter that I would want plenty of raita with the lamb and he was happy to bring me more.
I arrived around 5:30 and the dining room was sparsely populated. But by the time I left, there was a healthy crowd.
I ordered everything I wanted and left with a bill of under $20.00 (no alcohol). I really thought it was a bargain!
