More than a decade ago, one of Frommer's' top recommendations was Memories of India, which built a devoted following near Universal for its well-executed pan-Indian cuisine. One of the owners has since bought out his partner and re-opened in a new spot near Disney. I’m thrilled to see the revival of a place with such long roots in the community: 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 crisp flatbread), and, at this place, dessert (I like the pulpy mango ice cream)—all for $7.25 to $10. The tandoori and naan (nearly a dozen kinds—garlic is a favorite) are made in a clay oven. The Lamb Kada Masala, cooked in ginger, garlic, spring onion, and gravy, has always been consistently strong.
