There are plenty of familiar Indian restaurant standards on the menu, and some are quite good, like the papri chaat, and the garlic naan. But don't miss the achari, a Northern Indian dish made with lamb or beef. It combines the tender stewed meat and slices of lotus root with various hunks of pickle in a tomato-onion sauce. It's a pleasure to get a mouthful of rich lamb with the unexpected sharpness of tart-bitter lime pickle or bitter melon pickle.
