It's hard to pass up the festive trays of Indian pastries on display, but the hidden steam table on your right hides a bountiful feast. Choose from chickpeas, curry, lentils and goat meat; the sari-clad server will open the lids for you to reveal the extra-spicy offerings. Choose from rice or naan, and enjoy an even lower price if you skip the goat meat. They also serve superb samosas and vegetable pakoras.
