Our Best Indian Restaurant in 2008, this Tustin strip-mall joint continues to produce excellent korma (try it with malai, or vegetable patties), bhindi (okra) masala and lamb dishes. Egg curry is one of the better renditions without going to Artesia, and stuffed karela is a must for lovers of the bitter melon. Stick with plain basmati rice, as the flavored rices are not worth the added expense. In addition to the traditional fare, this may be the only spot in OC for Indian-Chinese dishes such as chicken Manchurian. A buffet with the "greatest hits" (chicken tikka masala, palak paneer, chana masala) is available every day for lunch and Monday through Wednesdays for dinner and, at $9, is a great lunch option. For dessert, carrot halwa and kheer (thin rice pudding) are very good. Service is leisurely, so take your time, bring friends, drink masala chai and chat.
