Some say that the Indian cuisine is almost as diverse as the entire European cuisine, because of the four different main regional styles: the North Indian cuisine (the regions Benaras, Kashmir, Mughlai, Punjab and Rajasthan), the South Indian cuisine (regions Andhra, Kannada, Kerala and Tamil), East Indian cuisine (regions Assamese and Bengali) and Western Indian cuisine (regions Gujarat, Maharashtrian and Malwani). The northern part of India is mostly rural, although it contains large cities such as Delhi, Mumbai and Calcutta, thus its cuisine is more agricultural than anything, wheat being a primary constituent of this region’s dishes. Southern regions however tend to be more exotic, spicy in their dishes and rice is a constant ingredient in their food. To give the taste of their main dishes, North Indians use onions and coriander whilst southerners use a more exotic coconut base for their dishes. Bon Appetite

Always my first choice for great Indian food at decent price level. Jyoti is never too noisy which is awesome for a relaxing date night or friends get-together.

Had a delicious dinner. Only a slight knock as we tried to order a drink that wasn't one of the listed "specialty" drinks - they wouldn't do it. The half-price bottle of wine was nice, just not the wine listed. In any event, the food and being able to sit outside far outweighed any negatives (as we really went for the food and not the drink).
