The best Indian food in Dallas is now in Richardson- MUMTAZ. These people used to own the Taj Mahal in North Dallas but sold it recently. (Unfortunately, Taj Mahal is now not so good). Worth the drive to Richardson-- MUMTAZ. MUMTAZ is authentic Indian, spicy, well done curries, samosas and a great Tandoori grill. MUMTAZ is not Americanized, not an Indian "Pei Wei". They have just opened at Central and Campbell in Richardson.
Best Indian Restaurant - 2007
Clay Pit Contemporary Indian Cuisine

I find their food bland and Americanised. Kind of like an Indian Pei Wei.I recommend Passand in Irving.
Clay Pit is definitely the best Indian restaurant in town. It is also popular with the young Indian crowd in the metroplex.
My wife is a South African. She comes from a culture with a huge Indian population and grew up eating really good, authentic Indian Food (much of it from street vendors believe it or not). Until recently, India Palace was our restaurant of choice for Indian Cuisine. Not any more. The Clay Pit has food that rivals India Palace AND a wonderful atmosphere. Lighter, brighter, better service and a Ceasar salad to boot. Wonderful. We enjoy it every date night we can.
