I moved to TR from Jersey City about 6 months ago and have been sampling the local restaurant scene. So far, the only Indian food I've located is at Aamantran. The Zagat rating is pretty good (23 for food), but in my two weeknight visits, I've found it rather, um, bland. It's not a "mild - medium - spicy" issue, it's more a matter of "spicefulness" (flavor). I had the samosa, chole peshawari (chickpeas), and malai kofta. What have your experiences been here? What are your favorite dishes? Do I need to make a special request when I order to "spice it up" for that authentic Indian spark? Are certain nights better than others? Is there an alternative to Aamantran in the area? Thanks.
