Realizing that every place has its ups and downs, here's my rough ranking of Indian restaurants in the Austin area:

*** Teji's

** Sarovar, Shalimar, Swad, Tandoori Hut,
Star of India

* Chola, Curry in Hurry, Madras Pavilion,
Bombay Bistro, Bombay Express, Clay Pit ("contemporary Indian"), Rangoli, Taj Palace

Indian Palace, Masala Wok ("Indian Chinese")

[don't remember trying]
? India Kitchen, Bombay Grill

[no longer in business :-( ]
***Rushi--for everything, esp. daal variations and homemade ice cream
***Hyderabad House--esp. jeera rice
***Airport Haven

Even though there are definite regional tendencies in Indian cooking [north--breads, goat/lamb, dairy incl. paneer; south--rice, vegetables, seafood(?)]. Many "Indian" restaurants include dishes from different regions, so I'm including all Indo-pak restaurants here. So, what are your favorite dishes, at which restaurant, and (preferably!) why?
