We checked into the Comfort Inn across the street and our hostess suggested this restaurant located in the Doubletree hotel if we were interested in a little upscale dining.
Since we had checked in early we walked across the street to investigate this restaurant. We found an attractive room with well spaced tables with an attached bar. Though not yet open a manager showed us a menu and as an afterthought informed us that the restaurant also had an Indian menu. We reviewed this menu and immediately decided to return for dinner.
What a delight. For an appetizer we had Murg Masala, ($6) Chicken breast marinated in a bouquet of Indian spices and served with a sweet and sour tamarind sauce on the side, on a bed of baaby greens and lettuce. I would have been happy to have this a a main course. Spicy but what flavours. For a main course we shared a Sumandari Jhinga ($15), five spicy shrimp cooked with tomatoes, onions and homemade exotic curry sauce and Chili Chicken ($12), tempura chicken tossed with onions and bell peppers finished with an aromatic Indian sauce of garlic and ginger spices. Both dishes were served with tomato and onion salad, rice and cucumber raita.
Both dishes were outstanding although I found the Sumandari Jhinga had a little too much sauce. We learned later that the chef is Indian.
If you like spicy and flavourful Indian food you won't be disappointed. Although we did not sample the traditional menu the dishes we saw going by were very attractive.
