For our Anniversary dinner, we went to Indika for dinner. I've already been there for HRW, and thought of it greatly.
If you've never been, you should try them. They might be a little on the pricy side, but the food is fully worth it.
For sitting down and ordering, you get potato cakes with apple and spicy chutney. It's nice and yummy, it all goes well together.
We ordered the mango lassi, it was more yogurt than anything else. Definitely very filling. Try not to wait till the ice to melt, it only just water down everything. So drink fast!
We ordered saag panner, which is creamy spinach.
Small order of mango chutney chicken breast, should've ordered more because the chicken was moist and the sauce went very well together.
Basmati Rice with coconut milk
We ordered a small thing of lamb, again, should've ordered more. It was delicious and not at all dry.
Saute Spinach, we got this because underneath the chicken and lamb. The spinach was so good that we ordered the side by itself. But turned out, this is different type of spinach than the ones that came with the dish. So keep that in mind, they are different, eat more of the ones with the meat.
On our way out, we got the cardamom shortbread cookies. It's nice, warm, and yummy. Of course, after you eat it, you feel the spice of cardamom going down. It's definitely a kick to it but in a good way.
If Indika is too pricey for you, try Pondicheri, it's owned by the same owner. That is more of a causal setting instead of formal dinning. The price is also very agreeable too. The difficulty would be getting into West Ave, but they do have free parking at the back garage.
As to Indika, every month, they host a cooking class. You get an appetizer, 2 dishes, and a dessert for $100. Once a month, it's on last Sunday evenings. You can see their menu here.
