So happy to see the Jewel get some love! This was the first restaurant I went to when I got off the plane after spending two years in Central America.

Terrific lunch buffet at this place. Very veg-friendly. Happy to see the endorsement.

Try Traveler's Thali on Beacon Hill and get back to me. It's #1 for Indian food if you can stand the often slow service. If you can kick back enough you'll fall in love with this place!

I'll echo that. I've eaten a lot of Indian in this town, and this joint, while not fancy, has excellent service and superb fare. Their spinach naan does not rival Taste of India, but nobody's does, and everything else I've had on the menu is top tier.

Taste of India's and Jewel of India's website are remarkably similar. Same owners? Anyway, I can't remember which one I went to. It was my first experience with real Indian cuisine. It was a cloudy, chilly, breezy, near-rain autumn Saturday. A friend and I had just seen The Crying Game at the Metro. Before that, I'd purchased REM's Automatic for the People and the Spin Doctors' Pocketful of Kryptonite around the corner.

My friend had planned to take me out to a late lunch after the movie. We went to the Indian restaurant and it changed everything I thought about Indian food. It was soooo good on a day like that. The ambiance was great, too, and I really enjoyed the rice dessert. I'll remember that day, that food forever.

Yes, but do they tip their employees?

Garam Masala across from Red Light on the Ave is my favorite. I had the best paneer there yesterday that I have ever had in my whole life. And they often have goat specials, for those of you into that sort of thing...

Tandoori across the street is also a great surprise! Check out the UW student coupon book for an amazing take out feast there! (Great for a legal 4/20)
