Grain and Salt in Allston

I had lunch at Grain and Salt yesterday, and it lived up to its high recommendations. The decor is brightly colored and comfortable, and we got a warm greeting from the owner when we arrived. I was freezing when I arrived, and he immediately recommended a hot cup of chai, which was delicious. We ordered samosas first. The spices were just right and the sauces on the side were clearly freshly prepared and tasty. I ordered murgh makhani and my husband ordered chicken korma. Both were made with perfectly tender, flavorful chicken. The rice was cooked just right and colored in gorgeous yellows and oranges, with fresh peas interspersed. It was almost too beautiful to eat! The naan arrived at our table steaming hot from the oven. Everything that we ate was perfectly textured and flavored. The service was excellent and enthusiastic.

The next time that we go, I plan on ordering from the Indian-Chinese section of the menu.
