Best Indian Restaurant That Doesn’t Cost as Much as Rasika

243 K St. NE, (202) 544-4777
If my wallet could bear it, I would eat Rasika’s palak chaat every day. But until I can afford this life of yogurt and fried spinach, there’s Indigo, the casual Indian restaurant in NoMa that offers gobs of great Indian food on the (comparatively) cheap. The butter chicken is good; the spicy chicken curry is even better. The secret is out for the restaurant’s neighbors, who mob Indigo’s patio on weekends, making phoned-in orders the best option. However long you have to wait, it’s a steal.
