Venue Info

A Punjab-born chef serves up modern takes on Indian street food at this North Williams fast-casual stop adorned with mod plastic chairs as orange as chicken tikka masala. Like the name suggests, she cooks her own spices in the typical Indian oven, where wads of naan dough get slapped onto the vessel's clay side until blistering. The naan are then wrapped around yogurt-marinated chicken and wrapped in foil for a bite to-go, but there are reasons to sit and stay. Lamb kebab platters can be washed down by Indian beer, glasses of red and the kind of cocktails that distinguish this place from just any buffet joint (Bourbon Pom: bourbon, pomegranate, ginger, bitters).
