First Look: Gandhi Mahal
Anyone bemoaning the lack of good solid northern Indian cuisine former Bostonians and Chicagoans are probably prime candidates will want to get over to the newly opened Gandhi Mahal, next door to Midori's on 27th Ave. and East Lake.
On a recent visit, nicely spiced chicken tikka masala and a rich but not overly sweet lamb korma were both worth the asking price ($12.95 a pop). A delightful selection of lassis (including banana, strawberry and mango) made the beverage section of the menu a joy to peruse, and the naan was soft, warm and lip-smackingly buttery.
I'll have a full review in City Pages on June 18, but until then, consider yourself covered if you have a sudden craving for Mughal cuisine.
