If you're looking for some of the best Indian food in Palm Beach County, look no further than Indus.
Indus Indian and Herbal Cuisine
is not, as the owners clearly state, your average Indian restaurant. This charming lunch and dinner spot has a wide-ranging menu that draws from several styles, each billed as home-cooked-worthy recipes.
The tandoori menu -- Indian-style BBQ featuring chicken, lamb, shrimp, and vegetables -- is best for the not-so-adventurous. It offers a variety of flavor without mystery marinades. Try the paprika, mint, and saffron-studded chicken tikka.
The very hungry will find modestly sized portions among the entrées, best for those who prefer a whirlwind of spices. Make a venturous order with the bharela bhinda, a spectacularly tangy melding of julienned okra slow-cooked in a fragrant gujarati spice, including bold coriander and cumin.
Many of the most appealing items are offered à la carte, like the biriyani, aromatic rice dishes served with shrimp, goat, chicken, or vegetables, and softly marinated in herbs like mint and cilantro.
And, of course, the standard Indian favorite: Indus' madras chicken curry, a silky coconut-cream sauce studded with mustard seeds and curry leaves. Sop up what's left of the sauce with a plate of piping-hot naan, fresh-baked on-site.
