India Quality

In the midst of foul-smelling Kenmore Square, the scent of curry rises in a small, bustling eatery known as India Quality. Although known for its extensive dinner menu, the restaurant is a great spot for lunch. It offers a wide selection of $5.95 midday specials that include excellently brewed coffee or tea. Among the best items on the menu are the kormas -- coconut-and-cream curry dishes cooked with chicken or lamb. As with most of India Quality's dishes, these are mildly spiced (even if you order the "hot" version), but the flavors are perfectly blended. Other prize-worthy dishes include the yogurt-infused saag paneer, the sweet butter chicken, and the cheese-laden shahi paneer. If you're with a group, split the mixed-snacks appetizer ($4.95), which includes tasty vegetable samosas. Also, India Quality whips up a tangy mango lassi ($1.25) not to be missed.

India Quality, located at 536 Comm Ave (Kenmore Square), serves lunch Monday through Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m, and on Sunday from noon to 3 p.m. Dinner is served Monday through Thursday from 4:30 to 10:30 p.m., on Friday and Saturday from 4:30 to 11 p.m., and on Sunday from 4:30 to 10:30 p.m. Call 267-4499.
