This pleasant South Indian restaurant in Scottsdale, from three Indian-born friends who attended culinary school together, features some of the Valley’s most vibrant examples of South Indian cuisine. Boldly flavored, expertly prepared, and packed with handfuls of ingredients like chiles, tamarind, ginger, cumin, and cardamom, don’t-miss dishes include vegetable curries of okra and stuffed baby eggplant; outstanding seafood creations of spicy shrimp and fish cooked in coconut sauce with red onions and green chilies; and crispy stuffed dosas served alongside dip-ready chutneys.
