Sathi, a friend: is the result of a couple of hard working frineds who are creating wonderful Indian/Himalyan foods for the past few years and sharing them with all of us. They believe in welcoming guests and providing them with homestyle tastes. Their dishes center around northeastern Indians and Nepali/Himalyan cuisine.
I am a novice when it comes to Indian or Nepali/Himalyan cuisine, but have been very open to exploring it recently and was absolutely blown away by Sathi Indian Cuisine. It is a small place, so reservations are strongly recommended. They are open for lunch and dinner and offer lunch specials as well as an all-day prix-fix menu.
On the night we visited, we started with Lamb Samosa for an appetizer. Perfectly cooked and stuffed with ground lamb and served with a spicy/savory sauce. We also tried the Steamed Lamb Mo:Mo from their Himalayan menu, which is essentially steamed lamb dumplings. They were delicious as well. For our entrees, we had the Lamb Vindaloo and the Chicken Tikka Masala and a side of the Garlic Naan and Cheese Naan. I am originally from Louisiana and love spicy food, and the Lamb Vindaloo was like Mardi Gras in our mouth. It was so spicy and delicious, but I was thankful for the rice and naan to help cut some of the spice. The Chicken Tikka Masala was just as flavorful and is highly recommended.
This is a great place whether you’re a novice eater of Indian cuisine or have eaten it your entire life.
