Best Indian Restaurant

Cedars Restaurant

The best Indian place in town isn't the flashiest—or the most-hyped, by any means. It's found in the humble attic of a little brown building with white trim, tucked between 47th and 50th Streets in the U District. Cedars Restaurant has become well-known for its one-of-a-kind butter chicken, mango curry, and garlic naan (just one of 14 naans the restaurant offers)—which can easily become your main meal if you can't resist refills. You'll forget about the less-than-aesthetically-pleasing neighboring businesses, Jack in the Box and Walgreens, and about the hustle and bustle of the Ave while you're surrounded by lit candles and the enticing scent of Cedars' spices.
