Indian food in Bellevue/Newcastle

  • t

I recently moved to Newcastle, WA and am looking for some really good Indian food. Any advice? Thanks!

  1. Have you tried Pabla on Rainier avenue in Renton? Vegetarian without sacrificing good taste (I'm a strict carnivore and still enjoyed it hugely.)

      If you are willing to venture out a little towards Seattle in the U-district (around the University of Washington), there is an amazing Indian place called Cedars. My personal favorite is the mango chicken curry.


      1. re: Karen

        Oh wow. Just ate at Cedars based on your recommendation and it was great. We got beef samosas, naan, and chicken tikka masala. Delicious. I've also heard the chai is great. I really loved the service setup they have there - a different person does each different aspect of service.

      2. re: barleywino

        Pabla's offers the best vegetarian Indian food I've had outside of Southeast Asia. Service can be a bit slow and grudging occasionally, but the food is definitely worth it.

      3. Moghul Palace is located in downtown Bellevue and is very good. Plus it has the added benefit of being right next to Fran's, which has wonderful chocolates. They don't seem to have a website, but I've attached a link to a coupon.

            I love Spice Route. I first went on the recommendation of my Indian neighbors and I'm hooked. The gobi manchurian is like crack. I've never had the lunch buffet--I can't imagine that has the best stuff they make. Dinner is fantastic.

            There are a lot of good Indian places in Bellevue, particularly in the Crossroads area.

          2. Mayuri and Spice Route.

            If you trek north to Mill Creek, Clay Pit is pretty nice.

            Nothing really outstanding in west side / Seattle proper, other than Pabla vegetarian in Renton.

            1. Yes if you live in Newcastle, you need to for sure go to Naan N Curry in Renton. Excellent. Surprised noone has mentioned this. I live in Renton, this place is awesome. People come from all over to go to it.
