Don't be fooled by the comfortable and relaxed atmosphere, Curry Vault takes its food very seriously. This Indian eatery hand-picks its spices from the native land and cooks them to perfection. Tandoori dishes(cooked in a traditional clay oven) are as popular as anywhere in the world and so are the curries, which have put India on the global food map. Indian bread (choose between naan or roti) is the perfect accompaniment and biryani (a combination of meat and rice) is not to be missed either. You might want to end this flavorsome Indian saga with one of their several sinful desserts.
