Thanks to a rec from slacker, we were inspired to try the Indian fare from Lal Mirch on Sunday eve, which I went and picked up as I live close by (I don't think the option for delivery was offered).
Really great Chicken Tikka Masala (my benchmark) - it was all white meat, too; excellent fluffy Garlic Naan; rich and oily (but delicious) Lamb Dupiaza. The only disappointment was the Aloo Gobi which is my SO's fave but he doesn't like the ones that are kind of tomato based..
I have yet to try their daal (another of my benchmarks).
Also, there were no pappadum listed on the menu and I forgot to ask when placing the order. When I got there I said that, and offered to pay cash for the pappadums (plain, not peppercorn, thank goodness) and they gave me some free!!!
My new fave Indian place. Thanks, slacker!
