There are a lot of great spots to eat in India Square, including restaurants specializing in Goan, Hyderabadi, and vegetarian southern Indian food. Rasoi focuses on dishes from northern India, and it’s our favorite place in the area for group dinners. Get a few orders of puri (puffed bread the size of rugby balls), and a bunch of shareable entrees, like the tender, deeply spiced lamb rogan josh or a platter of various meats and vegetables cooked in a tandoori oven.
