Central Jersey Indian

I am taking some friends out for Indian food and would like a place with atmosphere as well as good food. I was thinking about Akbar or Indigo. I haven't been to Moghul lately, but read on site that reviews places on Oak Tree Road that it has gone down hill. I have had some excellent meals at ispice near Aaron Road, but was looking for someplace with more atmosphere for this meal. Any ideas?

  1. Palace of Asia in Lawrenceville gets lots of raves. Check out the virtual tours on their website for their more upscale atmosphere:

      I second Palace of Asia, it's so misleading on the outside...when you get inside it's huge w/an impressive atmosphere! I have Indian clients and they always want to go to this place (it's close for us too). Sometimes they have someone playing a citar and the food is great! I love their korma!

    2. My choice is Spice Melange in Metuchen

      1. Gabbeh, there are many discussions on the board about Indian restaurants in central Jersey. Here's a link to a thread I started over a year ago. It is by no means complete because I specifically asked about places that are not in Edison. Let us know where you end up and what your experience is.
