      Not that I'm an expert on Indian food, but Namaste (next door to Lotus of Siam) has been pretty darn good the times I've been there.

    2. Origin India on Paradise is excellent if somewhat fancy.

        According to a recent article by John Curtas, the chef at Namaste has returned to his former employer Tamba.

            Tamba is in the Hawaiian Marketplace on the Strip.

            I finally made it over to Namaste on 1/29. I have no basis for comparison, but my meal was just mediocre. Sounds like a new chef, alright. Food was barely lukewarm, also.

              Hopefully this isn't so tangential that it'll get axed, but this touches on a question I have about Indian food. The fine points of Indian are not my strong suit. But I DO know that the flavors in a lot of those curries and masalas and such are pretty flat when piping hot, but really come out when they cool down a bit. Many of them, personally speaking, I prefer lukewarm for this reason. Is it possible that this is done intentionally? Not purporting to know the answer, just asking the question.
