My 10 year log enjoyed wonderful Indian food on a visit to Chicago & now insists we must find something good here in Settle. I warned him this might not be possible since I've never heard of good Indian food here. Let me know if you've found anything you like here other than Poppy which we know & love. It's a bit pricey for an entire family.

Poppy is hardly Indian. I've heard there are some good Indian places on the Eastside, but I have no personal experience.

Try one of the two locations for India Bistro (Ballard or Roosevelt). The owner is a spice importer, maybe that's why the flavors taste so much fresher than is typical (I've spent time in India and cook Indian myself so I'm fairly picky).

And if you ever have the opportunity to go to Vancouver BC, definitely check out Vij's.

Indian is like BBQ. People have radically different ideas of what is good. My wife and I personally like Roti in Queen Anne quite a bit. We get it for takeout quite often. I would not recommend the lunch buffet. But the tikka masala and lamb korma and garlic naan is quite good.

It is no Vij's. VIj's is awesome.
