Indian food just tastes better when it feels like you’re on the enchanted subcontinent. Take a trip in without leaving the Valley by stepping past the threshold at Royal Taj. The interior is decorated with elegant Indian furnishings and décor, and the food is authentic to match, prepared by master cooks Dina Nath and Satnam Singh. There’s also a full bar, a rare sight to be seen in Indian restaurants. Appetizers include the American favorite samosas – triangle-shaped pastries filled with meat, vegetables, or lentils – but onion lovers will enjoy them battered and deep fried as bhaji. The menu also features tandoori dinners with ginger chicken, shrimp, and even paneer cheese; spicy lamb, fish, and beef vindaloo; saag, choice of meat cooked in fresh spinach and spiced gravy; and chef’s specialties like karahi lamb sautéed with herbs, onions, tomatoes, and spices. The biryani rice dishes are also delicious, similar to fried rice but with chicken, nuts, raisins, and spices.
