Our Critic’s Choice for Best New Restaurant in the 2019 Dining Awards. Owner Sunny Corda’s gem in the Dr. Phillips neighborhood focuses on the cuisine of Southern India, and the magnificent tastes range from the parda biryani—an oven-cooked combination of basmati rice, and peppery masala and meat—to chepala pulusu, a tamarind-based curry surrounding tender mahi spiced with coriander, cumin, garlic and ginger. Also a winner: achari chicken tikka, made with a pickling spice that lends a tart flavor. The paper-thin rice flour crepes called dosa are superb.
