Indian in lower Westchester

On the "worst restaurants in Westchester" thread there was a side discussion on good Indian in southern Westchester, so I thought it would be better to continue that here.

Last night we tried Taj Palace in White Plains, they opened up a few months ago just behind the Westchester Mall. I have to say, this was our best Indian so far (I'm comparing to Rani Mahal (poor) in Mamaroneck and Tandoori (ok) in PC). Coromandel and Rangoli in NR are next on my list.

The Dal Makhani, which often has too much cream, was actually light and tasty.
Chicken Elachi was great -- nice fragrant sauce with curry leaves, haven't seen this on menus before.
Lamb Kohlapuri was spicy, almost like a Vindaloo. Too much for the kids but wife and I enjoyed it.
Masala Dosa had a nice taste but not the ideal dish for take-out as its best to be served with the dosa freshly made. In the bag the dosa got soft from the steam. I;m guessing in the restaurant this would be a great dish and will try it there next time.
The one disappointment actually was the naan -- too thick and doughy. Won't stop me from going back -- hoping it will be better next time.

So, this is a great new addition to the area, any other hounds try it yet?
