Another Indian in Austin question

reebs26 Dec 4, 2006 08:11 PM

My book club always serves food that coordinates with the book we're reading. This month, it's Indian. I love love love Indian food, but several others in the club have never even had it. (We're in Waco, these people like books a lot more than food, and there are no Indian restaurants here.) I've proposed picking up take-out in Austin, which they have agreed to. I was thinking of keeping it simple with stuff that it's hard not to like--butter chicken, vegetable korma, saag paneer, and lamb vindaloo.

What Indian restaurants in Austin do you think serve the best versions of these standard dishes?

Thanks for your help!!

    hi reebs,

    i went to high school in Waco. :)

    i live in Germany now but all my customers are in the UK so i am a bit spoiled when it comes to Indian.

    i remember that the Clay Pit ( http://www.claypit.com/ )used to server decent Indian food, but historically, that is one area that Austin is sorely lacking.
