With so many Indian restaurants to choose from, it can be difficult for people to find the better places in the city, especially when the buffets so common to Indian places can differ so much from day to day. Well, a jewel in Indian fare is The Exotic India, which has recently opened under new management and is now more welcoming, brighter, cleaner, with better food and excellent service. The buffet, which offers a remarkable and equal selection of herbivorous and carnivorous dishes, is affordable and consistently fantastic. The a la cart menu at The Exotic India is full of terrific choices. Aside from standards like tandoori chicken and lamb tikka, some of the regional specialties are the chuza tak-a-tak, with spiced juliennes of chicken, onions and peppers, and the lalpari, which is barbecued lamb prepared with red wine, red peppers, green chilies, and fresh coriander. Vegetarians will find plenty to choose from on the a la cart menu, such as the paneer dilwala, which is Indian cheese simmered in a Punjabi butter sauce, and the pindi chana, chickpeas and tomatoes in a garam masala sauce. There is also a selection of naan which is much larger than that offered by most Indian restaurants. The service at The Exotic India is attentive and friendly. The environment is great for a romantic night out or for a large party. They are experts at accompanying all who come through their doors.
