Best Skyway Eats
In an overly corporatized and branded dining landscape, you gotta love Kadai, a skyway pit stop where it’s all about the cooking. This real-deal Indian kitchen specializes in set meals served on little trays that look a lot like the ones used in school cafeterias. Actually, you can grab them and go, or stay and enjoy the room’s fluorescence; either way, all of your attention will be on the hot, fresh food. Like most Indian buffets, Kadai offers a rotating selection of today’s bests, but this is no steam-table operation. Every dish is uniquely prepared, like chicken biryani, with rice grains individual as snowflakes, or rich, thick, golden, and bright chicken tikka, or fragrant and bubbly naan. There’s even plenty of spiced and herbaceous vegetarian-friendly dals, lentils, and vegetables, each of them enough to make you question the wisdom of that sad skyway salad in the rubber-banded clamshell. Make the right choice.
