My daughter wanted Indian for her 24 birthday, so we trekked over to Aman's. We went to the lunch buffet a few years ago and were impressed. The food was very good. We split an appetizer of veg Samosas, Pakora, Bhaji and Tikki. Should'a ordered two as there was a fight brewing over the Samosas. For entree's we had a hot Chicken Vindaloo, Lamb Saag, Chicken Tikka Masala, and Chicken Biryani and keep the Naan coming. And of course, Mango Lassis all around. The Masala and the Vindaloo were both as good as we get from our friends mother. The Lamb Saag and the Chicken Biryani were both new dishes to me, and now a challenge for me to copy. Warning: the Saag will have an odd but not detrimental effect on your bowels. Saag is greens cooked down with Coriander and other herbs. For deserts we passed around bowls of Kufi (Indian style ice cream), Gulab Jamun, and Kheer, and coffee.

Aman's is BYOB, and diner for the four of us was $100 incl tip.

What I'm comparing the food to is what our friend's mother makes. They are Indian by way of Tanzania. Before he got married last summer, his mother would cook food to take to work so he wouldn't get hungry. She always packed enough to feed an army, so my wife got to take home the leftovers. It is a treat to see her come in with that bag of goodies.

Anyway, Aman's get's high marks, albeit a little on the pricey side but well worth it.
