I'm interested in hearing from anyone who has RECENTLY (last 6 mo?) dined at any Indian restaurants in the theatre district vicinity. Your general appraisal and recommendation would be much appreciated.
The Chowhound consensus seems to be that Bay Leaf and Shaan are the optimal choices for this area, along with a restaurant I can't get very much information on: Dakshin Indian Bistro. The Big Dawg likes it but says it's inconsistent. I've got but one meal to give, so I'm looking for a "best bet" option for a weekday lunch.
I'm partial to Northern fare... great naan, righteous dal... and I'm not at all adverse to a buffet. Taste and quality predominate over price.
I thank you in advance for your wisdom!
