Restaurants everywhere rise and fall, but nowhere does the cycle play out faster than on Nassau County’s Indian scene, which Jim Leff calls “the fastest-changing I’ve seen.” Yet hounds say one constant in recent years has been Heritage of India in New Hyde Park.

This place is “the class act right now,” says Jim, who singles out tender, aromatic murgh achari kebab (chicken marinated in pickles and yogurt then barbecued). Also recommended: onion kulcha and an intense, if bony, goat dopiaza (cooked with onion, tomato, garlic, and cilantro). stuartlafonda finds the food reliably tasty and the owner savvy and hospitable.
