Like your curries with a kick? Head to this bustling Tenleytown dining room where most things, even typically mild chicken tikka masala, have a spiciness that creeps up on you. Meanwhile, the lamb vindaloo is best suited for those who get their Buffalo wings extra-extra hot. Mellow the slow burn of the gravies with garlic-and-pepper or cilantro-sprinkled naan.
