India’s Flavor is pleasing the palates of Glendale-area hounds. The tiny place, which has cycled through several management teams, has tasty food and really nice owners.
Malai kofta, bhindi (okra), and the paneer in tomato sauce are stellar, says thewaz.
Meat samosas are delish, filled with a mix of lamb and chicken, says garvanza girl. They go really well with the chunky mint chutney.
Chicken saag has big chunks of chicken and creamy, flavorful spinach. The spicing is complex; order medium spicy, and what you get will have some nice heat and depth but won’t haunt you the next day (or in the middle of the night).
Also nice: chicken curry, vegetarian thali, and that eggplant dish with caramelized onions. Paratha and garlic naan are particularly good.
Saag paneer and coconut curry vegetables leave something to be desired, and the dal is pretty bland.
It’s truly small, just a half dozen tables.
