Need Rec's for Indian food in Phoenix/Scottsdale area.

Hi there..
The in-laws are in town and have a traveling tradition of always trying the Indian food restaurant when visiting a new city. I'm not really an expert in this area, but they assured me they'd help me order. Any suggestions? We are in the lower Arcadia area, so anywhere from Central Phoenix to Scottsdale or Tempe would be fine.

  1. I like Jewel of the Crown in Scottsdale. Really good food.

    I have recommended Tandoori Times in the past, but they have moved to a new location and reports have been less than stellar.

    Indian Delhi Palace on McDowell Road near 52nd Street is also good from past experiences.

    7373 E Scottsdale Mall Ste 1, Scottsdale, AZ 85251

    Indian Delhi Palace

      Thanks Seth! We ended up going to Indian Delhi Palace and it was great!

        Met my Mother last evening @ the new Scottsdale location of Tandoori Times.

        Being so close to home....we were pleasantly suprised, especially after reading some of the unfavorable reviews that have recently been posted.

        We started w/ an order of the onion naan. It was piping hot when brought to the table...along w/ a trio of sauces. For entrees we shared a chicken korma, a Mumbai Curry Prawns and a Tandoor Lamb KaboB served w a side of Raita.
        and a order of Vegetable Biryani.
        Everything was cooked perfectly. The flavors were deep and distinct. The Korma was rich and comforting.
        The Mumbai Curry prawns were the standout. I found myself wiping up the sauce w/ the last bit of naan bread!
        Hopefully they have worked out the kinks in this new location.

        The restaurant was busy.....service was slow to start...but attentive by the end.
        It was a very pleasant evening. We will definitely be back!
