Cambridge Indian

Enfielder Mar 2, 2007 04:06 PM

Will be coming up to Cambridge in a couple of weekends and was hoping for some recos on Indian restaurants - have a particular fondness for Tandoori chicken.

    Second the Kebab Factory and Tamarind Bay recs. If you want to venture a little afield, outside of the more common Punjabi cuisine, I'd recommend checking out Namaskar (a decent selection of Gujarati dishes) and Royal Bengal (a whole section with Bengali dishes).

      If you're willing to branch out a bit and try some very unique and authentic Indian food, I strongly encourage you to check out Tamarind Bay. The lunch buffet is all right, but for a real treat order off of the full menu.

        I think Kebab Factory is best for this, even though their chicken kebabs are very different from ordinary, dark-pink tandoori chicken. I think this is one dish where Tamarind Bay--another board favorite--doesn't shine (at least when I've had it served made-to-order along with their buffet). On the other hand, their tandoori quail is pretty nifty.
