Madras Masala

  • d

I just returned home, to Washington DC, after a pleasant two months in Ann Arbor, Michigan. One of the things that made the trip was discovering Madras Masala on Maynard St. This is really a top-notch Indian restaurant, and I'm happy to recommend it to everyone. It's hard enough finding good South Indian food, and this place has an excellent selection. I was also intrigued and very pleasantly surprised by the selection of "Chinese" items, which I gather are interpretations of Chinese dishes for the Indian palatte. Whatever, the two dishes I tried worked very well - the Chili Chicken and the Garlic Chicken.

Great's pretty much brand new, and deserves people's attention.

  1. A classic recommendation. Food was awesome and they were able to spice it to the level we wanted. Definetly a perfect recommendation for South Indian and Indian Chinese..

          1. Yeah, it's not even the best in Ann Arbor, never mind anywhere else. I've never been a fan.
