Ajanta Cuisine of India

May 9, 2013Katie

This may be the shortest and sweetest post I’ll ever do on a restaurant.  Specifically, the restaurant I’m briefly mentioning is Ajanta Cuisine of India at 122nd and N. Pennsylvania Avenue.

The reason behind my brevity is simply this.

I can only order one thing off their menu.


And it’s their Chicken Tikka Masala.

Ajanta’s Tikka Masala is by FAR the best I’ve found.  I’ve tried ordering other things and I always regret it because I go with my friend Joy and she never strays from the Tikka Masala and then I envy her food the entire meal.  For the sake of our friendship, I stopped trying other things.

Never mind the fabulous Basmati rice they serve.  Or their delicious regular or garlic Naan.

It’s the sauce.  Yes, the sauce I splattered crazily over my plate in the haste to taste it.

The luscious sauce, full of tomatoes and cream (or yogurt?) and spices…the spicy but creamy sauce is so good,  Joy and I crave it continuously and it has ruined us to Tikka Masala anywhere else in the city.

We frequently text each other things like:

“Is it the guy’s Bible study night? Cuz I’m craving Ajanta!”

I am slowly prying the secret out of the owner’s tight-gripped hands and last time we were there, we detected ground almonds in the sauce, and ..he confirmed!

I would order a bowl of just the sauce to dip my Naan in.

It’s that good.

The END.

    Does Ajanta still have a lunch buffet?

      Patricia - I am not sure - I haven't been in awhile - it's been bought by another owner but I'm sure you could call and ask?
