Best Indian Restaurant 

Indian Food

Nihari is unlike anything you've had at an Indian restaurant. Sure, its basic flavors are firmly rooted in the subcontinent: cardamom, curry, nutty ghee. But it begins with an explosion of ginger, lime and cilantro that wouldn't seem out of place in a Southeast Asian or Latin American dish. Actually, there's a good reason you won't find nihari in most Indian restaurants: The dish is most commonly associated with Pakistan. The Khan family, who own and operate Indian Food, originally hail from Karachi, Pakistan, and they offer a unique take on a cuisine that, despite the restaurant's name, spans countries and thousands of years. Besides nihari, you'll find flavorful versions of such classic Indian dishes as korma and biryani. Whatever you order, enjoy it with chapati, a delicious bread lighter and more flavorful than traditional Indian naan.
