NAYA Indian Cuisine is now open for lunch and dinner seven days a week on the corner of 3rd and Inexperienced Street in Campustown. NAYA very first opened 1st opened in 2019 with a scrumptious Asian Italian-inspired menu, and this new iteration of NAYA has none of the same dishes.
NAYA Indian Cuisine has a menu of breads, appetizers, vegetarian meals, chicken entrees, and dishes with lamb, goat, shrimp, and fish. The interior is incredibly equivalent to NAYA Bar & Eatery, just minus the bottles on the mirrored cabinets guiding the bar, less booths, and a lot more tables for two.
When we 1st sat down, our server introduced us waters and a complementary pre-food snack.
The padad and dip were not in contrast to chips and salsa. The cracker had a black pepper flavor and was uncomplicated to break into items to dip in the sweet cumin sauce.
We requested vegetarian samosas to commence ($3.99). The crispy pyramids had aromatic coriander seeds sprinkled in the course of tender potatoes and peas. I loved the environmentally friendly sauce it was super spicy but well well balanced with citrus and cilantro.
The NAYA particular chicken vindaloo ($16.99) was outstanding, and I would extremely advise this dish. Comprehensive of tender rooster, the tomato curry had a superb heat and wonderful onion flavor. The chopped potato was gentle like the inside of a thick fry and absorbed the vindaloo’s flavors.
The lamb curry ($16.99) had large cuts of lamb in a skinny, delectable gravy. At NAYA, there are a few spice ranges: mild, medium, and incredibly hot. We had our two entrees medium spice, and it was hot but not frustrating. If you like seriously spicy, go for the spicy stage — I think in you.
Naan is an complete have to when I’m eating Indian foods, and NAYA’s garlic naan ($3.99) was yummy and smooth with a lot of chopped herbs.
The aspect of rice was bundled with the lamb curry, and it arrived in a pretty copper bowl.
I also purchased the strawberry lassi ($3.99) which was fantastic. It tasted like a strawberry milkshake and experienced slivers of strawberry in some sips.
My day purchased the masala chai tea ($2.99). A good scorching beverage, the tea was savory and earthy the masala flavors of cumin, cinnamon, and cloves ended up delicious with the chai.
All in all, it was a delectable lunch with fairly speedy assistance. I adore the ambiance of NAYA’s dining space, and it absolutely sure was nice to be back taking in at NAYA.
