Whether you’re looking for takeout or a casual dinner on the Upper West Side, Alachi Masala has you covered. Not only is this restaurant BYOB, but it also doesn’t charge any corkage fees. Whether you’re dining in or taking your dinner to go, you have a long menu of Indian favorites to choose from. Go the traditional route with vegetable samosas (two for $4.95) or vegetable pakora ($6.95) to start. You’ll find classics like chicken tikka masala ($15.95) and saag paneer ($13.95) alongside specialty dishes like emlyka murg, boneless chicken cooked in peppercorns, tamarind and garam masala ($14.95). Of course you’ll want some naan—what Indian feast would be complete without it? Try it flavored with garlic ($3.95), stuffed with spiced potatoes ($3.95) or studded with cherries, raisins and coconut ($4.95). Hungry for something sweet? Sample some of the traditional Indian desserts on offer, like the cardamom- and rose-scented pudding called kheer ($4.95) or ice cream flavored with saffron ($4.95).
