Need help picking East-Indian eatery in Edmonton for my birthday

Sylv F Mar 27, 2009 06:12 PM

My family's taking me out to dinner for my birthday this Saturday and I'd like to visit an East Indian restaurant. My range of East-Indian restaurants in the past few years has pretty much been Dawaat, New Asian Village, Khazana's and Hawelli. I'd be interested in someplace new, if there are any East-Indian gems I've missed (which is very possible).

Since it's a birthday, I wouldn't mind a fancier-looking place. I'd prefer something central or in the west end if possible too, but that's not absolutely necessary.

Thanks for any advice. I have those restaurants mentioned above as fall-backs but I wouldn't mind someplace new!

    I've always enjoyed Maurya Palace on the south side (34th Ave) and I hear Origin India on Whyte is a more upscale Indian experience.

      i'm with raidar - there are good ones on the south side - i like punjabi sweet house - and origin india on whyte might be interesting since it is new.

        Oh and I'll second Punjab Sweets. I think I can feel the sugar overload when I dig in to their dessert counter. Hmmm!

        Thanks! It looks like we're going for Origin India on Whyte. (I'll have to try Maurya some other time, that also looks tempting)
