Craving Indian Food in Orlando
Are there any good Indian Restaurants close to downtown Orlando?
My favorite Indian restaurant in Orlando is Kohinoor in Altamonte Springs, which is about 10 - 15 minutes north of downtown Orlando in good traffic. You can take I-4 east to 436 (Semoran Boulevard), and make a left. It is a very short distance past I-4 on the right in a strip mall, just a few blocks down. They have a lunch buffet as well as an extensive menu.
This is a FAQ. Go up to the top of the screen next to "Florida" and click on "Search this Board" and search for INDIAN ORLANDO and go through the 4 or so pages of results.
Or, since I am such a nice guy, just click here:
I've eaten at quite a few Indian restaurants in the area and by far the best Indian food in Orlando (and maybe the Western World) is Memories of India. There are two locations, one near Universal and one in Lake Mary. Get the chicken kada masala and their garlic nan. You will not be disappointed. I guarantee.
If you like something different, try Udipi Cafe in Longwood. They serve up vegetarian dishes from South India. The food doesn't have the Indian flavors I am used to, but my Indian friend swears by its authenticity.
I love Indian food, but you won't find any in the downtown area. All of the places mentioned are great and worth the drive into the burbs.
