When my husband and I first moved to Highland Park, NJ, our moving company was running a bit behind so we had to live without a kitchen for a week. Thank god we discovered Delhi Garden. That first week, we ate there three times in a row. It is a small, completely unassuming, strip-mall, take-out joint. The price is right (the most expensive entrees are all of the lamb dishes that cost $8.95 each) and the variety is incredible. Each dish is distinctive and prepared with care. We have not encountered any gloppy sauces. The vegetarian dishes are my personal favorite. If you like eggplant, you will become an instant addict of the Bagare Baigan, whole baby egpplants simmered to perfection in a tamarind, coconut, and peanut sauce. The Dal Tarka is to die for. I had no idea that lentils could taste so good. Another nice veggie surprise is a dumpling dish in an outrageously delicious yogurt sauce, the Kadhi Pakora. Also highly recommended: the Lamb saag, lamb rogan josh, and the minted parantha (kind of like a naan that is stuffed with mint).
We go there so often, they know us and greet us like friends. they also deliver to edison, highland park, and new brunswick. closed on monday.
