A new restaurant in West Palm that isn't on Clematis Street?
Well, yes. It's Indus Herbal and Indian Cuisine
, and it's way off the eatin' path not far past the decrepit Palm Beach Mall just east of I-95.
It's a pretty swell-looking place inside, much swankier than your usual Indian eatery and apparently the leftovers of the previous (and un-named) restaurant tenant. Big, posh banquettes, dark wood cabinetry, dangling Deco-esque light fixtures all add up to a pretty damn classy room.
The menu spans all regions of Indian and is beyond extensive, with more than two dozen starters and soups, plus DIY salads, a multitude of curries (from eggplant to goat), tandoori and biryani specials and a roster of freshly baked breads.
There's also a lunch and weekend buffet and delivery within five miles, so if you're stuck on Clematis and hungry for Indian cuisine, they can probably fix you right up.
