Raduni

Raduni is the latest entry into the Indian restaurant derby. It is located in the Publix center at Shallowford and I-85---go all the way in the back. They offer lunch buffets seven days a week and did a healthy business in take-out while I was there. But I was surprised that it is also set up as a nice sit-down restaurant. The tablecloths and painting of the Taj Majal help make this a place where you want to stay and eat. The service was very gracious and helpful.

The papadum were very good with a real taste of lentils. Let's face it, some papadum taste like wallpaper paste. But a good papadum is hard to beat. The chutneys were very good; I think my favorite was the onion.

I think this was the best vegetable korma I have had in quite some time. The sauce carried a rich mix of spices, many done with whole leaves and nuts; the different notes came through very clearly. And it was creamy without being overwhelming.

My garlic naan was very puffy and airy. The garlic was fresh and flavorful.

I also left with some takeout for a Super Bowl visit to the Contes: vegetable samosas, wings, and more papadum. Everything was a hit.

Radumi is a welcome addition and I will be back. The food is excellent and very reasonably priced.
