This female owner-and-chef team (both of Indian descent) isn’t doing Devon; it’s elevating Indian cuisine for the swank set that wouldn’t venture north of Belmont Avenue (a plentiful crowd, apparently, as it’s on a decade of business that includes expansion to NYC). Many dishes boast a Latin American flair for those interested in something other than straight-up Indian. Feeling adventurous? Try artichoke pakoras with an eggplant chili coconut sauce, tandoori steak with fried plantain chips and the lobster Portuguese, in which the shellfish is stewed in a deep, cumin-heavy, Goan-style gravy then split and spooned over coconut rice.

I went here with some friends for the first time. I was worry about the spicy food because my boyfriend hates spicy, but not to worry they have other not so spicy food. The seafood stew was  short of AMAZING. If you go ask for Micky he was our waiter and he was the best, hopefully he's still there.
