Hey Everyone! I'm looking for a good Indian place in Orange County, something reasonably priced but also mind blowing. I'm an experience Indian food eater so I'm looking for the BEST! Anyway you guys could help would be appreciated.
India Cook House and Clay Oven are also my favorites. Clay Oven is finer cuisine, more exquisite sauces (Moghul/Mughlai), with daily specials that can be really exotic; it's more expensive but worth it for the fabulous food. India Cook House is solid northern Indian food, very good quality but no surprises, and more reasonably priced.
Can't go wrong either way.
I tried Dosa Place once and really liked it (especially the kheema (goat) dosa), but should warn you that all my friends who have gone there did not like it at all, so it may be an acquired taste. However, if you already know you like southern Indian food, or you are more open-minded food-wise than my friends, you should definitely try it.
Consider Ashoka at the intersection of Magnolia and Talbert. Excellent food, nice people, and reasonable prices.
My favorite is Dosa Place, on Red Hill in Tustin. It is a South Indian place; the owners are from Andhra Pradesh. (Sorry if I spelled that wrong.)
Really good things include the Dosas, (Huge crispy pancakey things with yummy fillings... try the Mysore Masala Dosa.) Southern style curries and fish dishes, and Hyderabad style Biryanis.
