The reliable menu includes vegetable samosas (heavy on garam masala, light on oil), a kebab platter of moist yogurt-marinated chicken and lamb, and mild curries with puffed nan or multilayered laccha paratha. The sleek jewel-studded room has tables so intimately arranged that servers are likely to trip over each other; consult the resident tarot-card reader to see if you’re in any immediate peril.
