I'm so glad someone else caught on to this place! I've eaten a lot of Indian food over the years, and this ranks among the best. I'm guessing that I was trying 4 traditional dishes: dal makhani, saag wala, murgh korma, and grilled vegetables. The flavors were distinctly Indian in origin, but they hinted at another influence I can't quite pin down (Middle Eastern, perhaps?). The saag (spinach) included kernels of corn, which I had never seen before. It added a new texture to an otherwise pasty dish. The cinammon in the spinach was immediately apparent and very welcome. The dal (lentils) was loaded with cilantro and cumin. These flavors stopped me in my tracks. The murgh (chicken), I believe it was korma, was smooth, creamy, and tender. The sauce oozed a nutty sweetness that was unmistakably Indian. Finally, I have to discuss the grilled vegetables. Usually, I avoid the grilled vegetables because they tend to be dry and bland. They are not very different from grilled vegetables in any chain restaurant in America. The grilled vegetables from Cinammon were the exact opposite. Yes, they had some of the familiar grilled vegetable characteristics, but they were covered in a thick, creamy, nearly "cheesy" sauce that really opened up the flavor of the vegetables.
