Overcoming a bland name with flavorful pan-Indian food and a cheerful staff, it has seen its following build. At lunch it prepares thali, a platter combining basmati rice, bread, raita (yogurt with cucumbers and tomatoes), pickle (relish), a meat dish, a papadum (thin wafer), and, at this place, dessert (I like the pulpy mango ice cream)—all for $6.95 to $9.95. The tandoori and naan (a dozen kinds) are made in a clay oven. The Lamb Kada Masala, cooked in ginger, garlic, spring onion, and gravy, is consistently strong. It’s a few blocks west of International Drive, in the ignoble Bay Hill shopping plaza, and Universal Orlando staffers often come here for lunch.
