Plano, TX 75075
Top pick: Even before we eat — as we’re cracking open some BYOB drinks — we’re charmed by whip-smart, frequently sarcastic menu descriptions like “Curd rice: yogurt and rice, with fried spices mixed in … (it sounds weird, but tastes awesome).” (Correct.)
The downside: The “Other Indian” menu section has an obligatory stash of tikka masala, vindaloo and saag paneer, but it’s perfectly easy to avoid ordering them. They’re fine, but they’re not the reason to come to Kumar’s.
Fun fact: Kumar’s is one of just three chain restaurants in the Top 100 with locations outside of Dallas-Fort Worth. The other two are Uchi and Rise.
