Sudhir Seth’s chandeliered room is more regionally varied than most. Begin with salads of puffed rice and tamarind or lime-spritzed yams and apples. They’re nice counterpoints to the luxurious curries, from a standout chicken tikka masala to shrimp in a clove-scented coconut sauce (order plenty of garlic naan to sop everything up). It’s easy to break the Cheap Eats budget here, so beware of ordering with abandon.
