Origin India-LV

We ate at Origin India recently and it is a really terrific place ot try, even if Indian is not your "go to" cuisine. Much like Lotus of Siam, Origin India moves beyond being a very good Indian restaurant to being a very good restaurant, regardless of cuisine. The restaurant is located right across the street from the Hofbrau House and the Hard Rock, so not too far off the strip. It's in a strip mall, but a new one, and the interior of the restaurant is quite upscale. They feature a variety of appetizers, salads, and entrees; a number of the entrees are tandoori, but there are numerous other choices. For folks looking for vegetarian food, this is an excellent choice, because large sections of the menu do cater to vegatarians. The garlic and regular naan are puffy, warm and delicious. We also had the Crunchy Bahijia, an appetizer that is essentially a spinach, potato, and onion fritter; the Aloo chaat, a potato salad; and the Gohst Dahiwala, which was lamb cooked with onions, cashews, and spices. The lamb was an entree and comes with dal and with more naan. There is also a full bar and a reasonable wine list, as well as Indian beer. Service was very friendly and the food was up quickly. It's not inexpensive (the lamb entree was about $17, and the appetizers were about $6), but the quality and freshness of the food merits the prices.
