Best Of 2014: Indian/Curry
Co-owner Raj Adhikari always has a warm hello and a big smile for his customers, whether he's working at the Eighth Street restaurant or up north — which makes it not only a tasty trip to visit Little Nepal, but a welcoming one. Start your meal with an assortment of samosas and pakoras. Add an entreé of tandoori, kabobs or curry. Say yes when asked if you'd like some garlic naan and a mango lassi. Wrap it all up with some kheer, and Adhikari will smile at you as you roll yourself back out of his restaurant. Maybe a trip through the buffet next time? — Kirsten Akens
