I just returned home, to Washington DC, after a pleasant two months in Ann Arbor, Michigan. One of the things that made the trip was discovering Madras Masala on Maynard St. This is really a top-notch Indian restaurant, and I'm happy to recommend it to everyone. It's hard enough finding good South Indian food, and this place has an excellent selection. I was also intrigued and very pleasantly surprised by the selection of "Chinese" items, which I gather are interpretations of Chinese dishes for the Indian palatte. Whatever, the two dishes I tried worked very well - the Chili Chicken and the Garlic Chicken.
Great place...it's pretty much brand new, and deserves people's attention.
