new Indian restaurant in Nyack

Open just over a week Natraz is serving good but very pricey food. Two gin & tonics, an order of veggie samosas, rogan josh, two veggie dishes, rice, and a naan was $70. Everything is a la carte, including rice and bread. The details:

Veggie samosas ($5.95 for two) were the hit of the meal. Large, beautifully fried, and filled with well seasoned potato and peas.

Rogan josh ( $15.95) has about a dozen large chunks of lamb in a hearty sauce with seasoning that accumulates as you eat, starting off delicate and building to a fair amount of heat.

Baingan burtha ($9.95) is eggplant cooked over charcoal and season with garlic and other spices. Very fresh tasting and firm, the garlic was noticable but not overpowering.

Bhindi masala's rings of very fresh okra ($8.95), charred and mixed with a variety of spices and having subtle heat, were very tasty.

Naan ($2.95) and a lovely cumin and saffron flavored pulao ($4.95) were good if expensive accompaniments.

The rest of the menu has a lot of Goan fish dishes as well as many vegetarian dishes, including a few I've never seen before.

There is a buffet lunch (it looked like they use at least seven chafing dishes) for $9.95 on weekdays and $12.95 weekends,

All in all a good meal and certainly better than any of the other Indian restaurants that have come and gone in Rockland County. But I know I can get much better food at much lower prices if I'm willing to travel.
