Zippy and I had dinner last night at the Ambassador of India restaurant in West Hartford. Pretty wonderful. Entree's were inexpensive and really wonderful ($8 to $13). The mulligatawny soup was a fabulous bowl of deliciousness (and a bargain at $2). We both opted for vegetarian, and the medium spice level was just right - flavorful and a small bite but not in any way painful. I had the Chana Pindi, Zippy had the Navrattan Korma, we loved 'em both. Zippy also had the Raita and approved....
It's BYOB, so bring a bottle of vino or a six pack of Kingfisher if you'd like. And do stop by - the night we went it was pretty quiet, and this place is too much of a gem in the otherwise trendy and pricey WH Center to permit it to fail. And if it catches on as it deserves, it will be hard to get a table, its a small and intimate spot.
