Surrounded by brick houses and apartment complexes in Chestnut Hill (and no visible signage), the first thing you’ll notice about New Era Indian cuisine is how many times you must have walked past without noticing. That’s until the scent of nose-clearing curries, biryanis, and fried samosas invite you in. The dishes here are consistently excellent, and you’ll often see lines of people running in for pick-up orders while you dine. If you’re into spicy food, start with the chili fish–the sauce might be the bottled version of dragon’s breath from Game of Thrones. But with lots of options like creamy dishes of butter chicken and paneer chettinad cooked in coconut milk, you’ll be able to balance the heat level out.
