In India, where religious belief dictate the diet of millions, vegetarian cooking, of necessity, has evolved into a cuisine of inspiring inventiveness.
Local colors abounds. White stencils cover the tan walls. Native lamps cast their light and sitar music cast its spell. The service is pleasant and unobtrusive. To appreciate the scope of interplay of Indian seasonings, dine family-style, sharing several dishes.
Indian meals are not eaten in courses; all food is served at the same time. If you are lucky enough to have a native guide, well and good. If not, ask the server for help with the unfamiliar. You needn't be native to enjoy this food as the mix of diners at Woodlands demonstrates.
