The Hindu god Ganesh stands guard above the arched entryway of this brass-and-burgundy-toned curry palace, which offers a heady range of well-prepared specialties. Although “seafood” and “Indian” don’t often go hand in hand, the salmon tikka and jinga bagharela—jumbo shrimp sautéed with garlic, mustard seed and curry leaf—are among the best dishes here. Freshly chopped garlic perks up the nan, and creamy rose-petal ice cream is a fragrant finale. Linger for a while on weekend evenings, when a musician plucks the sitar.
