Indian food round-up: Best of the East Bay

Indian cuisine can be as entrancing as the Taj Mahal, and it’s a lot more accessible. When that compartmentalized metal plate (called Thali) is set before you with its colorful layout of basmati rice, masalas and meat or veggies, there’s no looking away.

You can approach your carefully arranged feast with standard utensils or, better yet, turn your soft slices of naan or crunchy pieces of pappadums into vessels transporting savory sauces to meet your mouth. Take a culinary trip to India at one of these BARTable East Bay restaurants where warm, creamy and heavily seasoned recipes make casual buffets or fine dining memorable.
