The Buzz...

"With a variety of sauces ranging from tomato cream and butter, to coconut milk with spices, to spicy tandoori, it's no wonder Kashmir's cuisine ranks among the top five in the city with locals and expats alike. It's also one of the very few places you can get a fix of yogurt, prepared here in several cool and creamy lassi flavors. The space is small, dimly lit, and quiet; the food is anything but. There are plenty of vegetable main courses and rice specialties to choose from, including the house pride chicken tandoori. A sure palate pleaser is Kesu Pullao, a subtle, saffron-seasoned rice dish, and in all cases, you'll be offered the option of mild or spicy (not for the wimpy). Most main courses come with an assortment of mango chutney, mint sauce, and a spicy crushed pickles and ginger dip. Those wary of spicy food might try the T-bone steaks and lamb chops in a milder mushroom sauce."
