India cuisine on ASU campus
This fine Indian restaurant is a big hit with Arizona State University students, especially at the inexpensive, huge lunch buffet, with all-you-can eat bread and numerous vegetarian selections.
The regular dinner menu is loaded with vegetarian delights as well. Starting with the appetizers, choose from Pakoras, Samosas, Onion Bhaji, Padadum (Indian wafers), and a fresh garden salad. Or try the vegetable soup (at just $2.25, it's well worth the meager investment).
For entrees, there's a couple of rice dishes worth checking out (a Vegetable and nut delight or rice flavored with cumin, peas, and onions); and then there's numerous Indian dishes familiar to this genre: Daal Maharani (split lentils), Bengan Bhartha (eggplant), Aloo Gobhi (cauliflower with potato), Aloo Matar (potatoes, peas, onion, and tomatoes), and Bhindi Masala (Okra cooked with onions); just to name a few of the delicious, savory vegetarian treats that await.
Delhi Palace has lots of great bread, ranging from such basics as Naan and Whole Wheat to bread stuffed with such ingredients as potatoes, cauliflower, or onions.
But the most bang for your buck comes from ordering a complete vegetarian dinner, with two curry dishes, Daal Maharani, Naan bread, rice, Dessert, and beverage ($12).
Service is first-rate, just adding to what is typically a memorable experience for just about any hungry diner.
Located in a strip mall just east of ASU campus (see picture below), Delhi Palace is open 7 days a week.

From University and Scottsdale Rd, go east 1/2 block and turn right into the strip mall with Kinkos copies.
