I'll go ahead and put this out there: I really like Indian food, however I'm not experienced enough to say ""Def go here vs. going there."" I've traditionally been taken to Indian restaurants, where my partner-in-crime knew what to order. Plus. even when you love something, it doesn't make you an expert. \r
That being said, I think Desi Spice is fabulous. It's tucked away among the seedy bars (Highlander, Independent) in the Midtown Promenade. The service is super-friendly and helpful and I found the food to be flavorful and elegantly presented. It's not so expensive to break the bank, but it's not Buford Highway prices either. The nan bread was to die for, and the vegetable dishes we got (one had spinach and cheese, and one was eggplant) were absolutely addictive. \r
I can't tell you how this truly stacks up... but for a nice Indian meal, good service and colorful location, you can't beat it.
