Of the many Indian restaurants in town, Star of India is one of the best — and definitely boasts the best mango lassi. The dining room is comfortable; guests will enjoy the desert-colored walls and cultural artifacts, as well as the beautiful copper bowls in which the food arrives. The menu is broad, with all the traditional specialties, but the kitchen is at its best with the richest, spiciest plates, so try the decadent butter chicken or fiery lamb vindaloo.
