Indian Mango

Okay if all the heavy curries and thalis have you wondering about where you might get something a little lighter to eat, then lo behold we have a South Indian restaurant for you. If dosas with warmly served sambhar and the quintessential savoury coconut chutney, are what you crave amidst all the heavy eating then the Indian Mango will take care of you completely. They not only have a wide range of selection of South Indian food but also provide vegan options and stuffing. If you’d like a drink to go with your bite then they also serve liquor and wines.

Garam Masala

Often the issue that most of us Indians have with European or Western style of cooking is that the food is little more on the bland side. We aren’t always satisfied without the tadka and something masaaledaar. Thus, swooping right in is the restaurant so aptly named as Garam Masala. While their food is often on the creamier side and less pungent in order to cater to the westerners visiting their establishment, you can always request the waiter to make sure that your meal is nice and spicy as you like. If the answer to your cravings and hunger pangs lies in some North Indian food, then you will find yourself enjoying a meal at this one.
