Cafe Tandoor
Multiple locations
This Cleveland Heights-establishment has branched out to two additional locations, in Aurora and Westlake, respectively. However, the South Taylor location is still our favorite, for their great food, cozy atmosphere, and lovely service.

 Bombay Chaat
2044 Euclid Ave., Cleveland 
“This is one of my favorite Indian places in Cleveland! They have a wide variety of food on their menu from South Indian to chaat to North Indian foods. Things we have enjoyed: many of the North Indian curries (paneer tikka, palak paneer, kadai paneer, bhindi), chaat items (ragada patties, samosa chole, papdi chaat), South Indian (masala dosa, medu vada). Amazing food, great varied menu with so many options to choose from and friendly staff,” Supi S. on Yelp

6 Flavors Indian Restaurant
5747 Chevrolet Blvd., Parma, 440-345-5599
6 Flavors’ name refers to the six building blocks of taste (like sour, sweet, etc) but the menu seems like it's bursting with so many more. They have a big lunch buffet and a unique dinner menu, but regardless of what time you go, be sure to get the mango ice cream as a perfect ending to your meal.
