7 years ago we lived in Fremont and loved the Indian food there, but now we get our Indian in the South Bay. We have family coming that wants good Indian and we will be over by Fremont, so we thought we'd revisit that scene. They are Indian inexperienced, and their favorite is butter chicken of course. I love South Indian not so much the creamy toned down curries of a lot of North Indian restaurants in the area, but maybe someplace that does an OK butter chicken or makhani (paneer OK) in addition to South Indian or less cream laden North Indian specialties?
When we lived in Fremont we often did the buffet at Bombay Garden in its heyday, but I know it has varied in quality over the years.
So, where is the best Indian (north or south or otherwise) in the East Bay nowdays. Will drive into Berkeley, but Fremont is more convenient. Atmosphere isn't an issue - just good food. If you have favorite dishes, feel free to suggest.
