Friday Night Indian- Staying Downtown
Trying to satisfy my daughters request for Indian food. We are spending two nights downtown, Friday/Saturday. We have enjoyed Copper Chimney on Avenue Road on numerous occasions, but looking for a couple options. Jaipur Grille was somewhat disappointing on our last visit, but not ruling it out.
We are trying to stay within public transportation, so Copper Chimney is inconvenient.
I like Maroli for Keralan food, but if it's Punjabi that you want, I enjoy The Host. Great tandoori.
I have been to Pukka.
It's more upscale than most, but WELL worth it.
And the St Clair streetcar stops right outside (Arlington).
The Kale salad was a standout - I know that sounds weird for an Indian place, but once you've tried it you'll find out.
Spicing is excellent and only the Pork 'vinha d'alhos' was blow-your-head-off hot.
Copper Chimney was my favourite before this.
Dhaba is excellent if you can talk to the chef - otherwise service is disappointing.
I haven't been to Babur recently, preferred Trimurti (same block), which has the best Onion Bhajia (IMO) in the city.
