The gist: A manifestation of Austin’s beloved G’Raj Mahal, Mumtaz Market is its wildly popular successor—and one of Austin’s top Indian restaurants—blending scratch cooking, South Asian flavors, and a touch of adventure.
The food: Aside from a wide selection of traditional curries from Tikka Masala to Korma, the team puts a creative spin on Indian entrees. The Pork Rechaad is a comforting stewed, spiced, and gingered pork with braised cabbage and candied pineapple, while the Gnocchi Saag, a creamed curry spinach with potato dumplings, is a vegetarian’s dream. Lunch specials include the Tikka Masala plate and Lamb Burger and Fries, best enjoyed with Mango Lassi.
The cost: Lunch specials $14 - $16, starters $8 - $10, entrees $19 - $42, curries $14 - $18.
