Contemporary Indian | Mt. Vernon Square, District of Columbia

Creatively and relatively re imagining classic Indian cuisine and flavors, Karma Modern Indian uses locally-sourced ingredients prepared with traditional and modern cooking methods. We aim to make Indian food more approachable by introducing the traditional cuisine with contemporary plating and forward-thinking flavor profiles. Favorites like naan bread, Palak paneer and Chicken Tikka are still part of the foundation of our menu, but we’ve put a modern twist on various dishes with unexpected seasonings and ingredients like truffle oil, pesto and star fruit.
