Best Indian Naan: Flies like a Frisbee and tastes great, too

Breads of India

This cozy Berkeley mainstay prides itself on never being the same place twice. The menu of tasty, inexpensive ($6-$10) entrées and freshly baked naan (traditional Indian flatbread) changes daily. The options for a main course include three vegetarian and two meat dishes (usually including a seasonal seafood dish on the weekend). Particular home runs include the chicken tikka, paneer salad, and curried zucchini, but if those aren’t on the menu, don’t worry — it’s hard to go wrong. And if you couldn’t tell by the name, the selection of breads that accompanies the meal is otherworldly. The restaurant serves about every variation of flatbread imaginable — including khopra masala naan, dill naan, garlic naan, chicken naan, tandoori lamb naan, and peshwari naan — all made on the spot and perfectly suited to soak up the day’s entrées. Don’t be put off by the substantial line of locals that crowds the place during the lunch rush — it’s well worth it.
