We ended up going to the Himalayan Bistro in West Roxbury last night, and it turned out to be an excellent choice; in fact, it may have been even better than my two favorite Indian restaurants: Punjabi Dhaba in Cambridge and Classic India in Quincy. The several dishes we had last night were all excellent:

mulligatawny soup
aloo palak (spinach with potatoes--an amazing dish here)
chicken tikka masala (the cream tomato sauce was the richest, and best, I've had)
saag poneer (spinach, cottage cheese, ginger, onions)
samosas (potato turnovers--excellent comfort food!)
veggie pakoras (vegetable fritters)
cheese pakors (slightly bland for my taste, but very good)
aloo tiki (spiced potato patties--also great comfort food)

The atmosphere at the restaurant is a bit Spartan, with hardwood floors, a few paintings on the walls, and lots of space between tables. It was pretty quiet, but they were doing a great takeout business while we were there.

This is one amazing place. If you like Indian food, definitely check it out. They also have a number of Nepali dishes that I'd like to try next time, but it'll be tough to get past the Indian entrees they have!
