Chola's Indian Grill

Venue Info

Named for the Chola dynasty, among the longest-ruling families of Southern India (where the owners emigrated from), this expansive Indian restaurant with patio seating and a full bar is devoted to specialties from the region. Steamed rice cakes are served with coconut chutney, and an assortment of dosas (a staple crepe made of rice and lentil) are topped with cottage cheese and spinach, gongura paste (made from garlic and chili-spiced leaves) and chunks of chicken tikka. Indo/Chinese-leaning dishes are notable, especially the Gobi Manchurian (cauliflower pan-fried in brown Manchurian sauce and topped with cabbage and carrots).
