Little India offers its fair share of mediocre food. Sidhartha, however, is an appealing and affordable choice. The warm tones and friendly service set the stage. Skip the buffet, though chep, and go à la carte. The bhajie is an airy pastry filled with sautéed onions and the vegetarian biryani with mint and tamarind sauces is recommended, as is the lamb biryani (or any lamb dish). Desserts underwhelm.
