After living in London for years and still visit, I have become very spoiled with the best Indian food in the world. It has been frustrating to live in Vegas and have to look under rocks for decent Indian food. The best we have found in town is Saffron and India Oven. There seem to be quite a few around the Paradise/Flamingo area but we won't drive all the way over there, especially as they tend to be over priced. Ghandi's used to be good 20 years ago, but not recently. Gaylord's is a chain. The best ones are the smaller, family run places. There needs to be more choice in the Northwest, but glad to have found the ones we have.

Saffron on Craig and 95 is delicious! One of the best I've had in Vegas. Curry Leaf is owned by same family as Saffron. The owner - Rajesh - at Saffron is a very nice guy and their service is very good. You should definitely try it!

We had lunch at Curry Leaf today. It was pretty good. Wife ordered Saag Paneer, I ordered Lamb Korma, both came with rice and choice of Naan (lunch special). Price was pretty reasonable, at $10 and $12 for each lunch. Also shared a Samosa appetizer. Wife ordered a sweet lassi to drink and bill came to about $33 after tax. If I had one complaint it was that it was a touch too salty for my tastes. Flavors seemed well developed. We were the only ones in the restaurant at lunch time.

zOMG Gag! DIRTY DINING: Gandhi gets one last chance - Story Where is the vomit emoji?

In other Indian Restaurant news Turmeric Flavors of India opened on Fremont East Downtown last October. I haven't been yet but it's getting good reviews.

And shortly after that Mint Indian Bistro expanded to Spring Valley. I've been there during their lunch buffet at both locations. This place is huge compared to their other location and their buffet is just as amazing! Great for large parties. I highly recommend it.

They aren't strictly Indian, but Paymon's has some Indian cuisine. Their chicken curry served on a bed of rice is my go-to dish there. On Wednesday evenings, you get a 25 percent discount on your meal. Their falafel is incredible. Three locations around town, I usually go to West Sahara. They have a hookah lounge too, if you're into that.

India Oven has been around a long time and has been consistently good. Saffron is newer and closer to home,we have not been there recently. Got a bit spoiled and went to a superior place in NYC called Tamarind. Have not had the heart to go to any here since then. I also cook my own, there is an Indian supermarket on Sahara and Arville where you can get all the gear.

Me too Tornado Baby, me too. I only really trust my own cooking most of the time. I have a new Instant Pot that my Mom bought me for Christmas on Black Friday, because they were having amazing deals on it then. Then I joined this Instant Pot group on Facebook for Indian Cooking and these women are amazing really and teaching me so much about Indian food, and everything tastes delicious of course.

I've been experimenting but I far prefer my pressure cooker Indian food at home than going out to eat. I also learned about pot-in-pot cooking from this fb group with the stainless steel containers. I guess it's very common in India they often say this. That PIP method has been a revolutionary time saver in preparing an entire individual meal for two in the least amount of time possible. They share the details on what works in the pots including measurements for the containers, direct links on where to purchase the same items here in the U.S. and directions on how to cook everything.

Most people love theirs so much they buy two and then some for their family members. I love my Instant Pot and wish I'd known about it sooner.

Examples of the stainless steel trivets for the pot-in-pot cooking in the Instant Pot.


Any number of dishes can be prepared PIP stacking method. For example "Rotli/roti/chapati, papdi saak, mauri daal (plain toor daal), rice, and guju kadhi. Saak, daal, and rice were done together in PIP 15 min manual. Kadhi was done on "less" saute mode (your normal kadhi measurements and then let it boil for about 10-15 min)."


I also saw this link today on Eater Vegas for the Essential Indian Food Restaurants in Las Vegas.
http://vegas.eater.com/maps/essentia...ants-las-vegas

Most of these places I've never heard of before nor tried, but after watching dirty dining episodes and learning the conditions some of them are in, getting several C grades or not passing inspections, I'm definitely researching them before eating at any of the establishments and staying far away from the bad ones. I was so grossed out by what I saw.

These are the ones listed on the Eater Vegas link.

1. Curry Leaf Flavors of India
2. Delhi Indian Cuisine
3. Desi Burrito
4. India Masala Bar & Grill
5. India Palace
6. Lazeez Indian-Mediterranean Grill
7. Mount Everest’s India Cuisine
8. Origin India
9. Pure Indian Cuisine
10. Saffron Flavors of India
11. Taj Palace
12. Tamba
13. The Mint Indian Bistro
14. Urban Turban Bombay Kitchen & Tapas E
