We recently wanted to try something different and, in that quest, came across India’s Grill in Fort Myers. Indian food is not something we normally would try but feeling adventuresome and hearing that it is very good, we gave it a try for lunch.
I have to say everything sounded delicious, but I was in the mood for lamb and my dining partner being a vegetarian also had many options to choose from. So we started with the Cauliflower Manchurian – Crispy batter fried Cauliflower florets with bell pepper, onions, broccoli in sweet and spicy sauce ($7.99). It was so fresh, crispy, and served hot. While it was spicy the sauce was perfectly balance with the right amount of spice. The portion was large enough for 2 or more to share.
My dining partner chose the Buddha Delight – made with local farm fresh vegetables and tofu in creamy coconut sauce, tempered with mustard seeds and curry leaves and a side of Basmati rice ($12.99). The vegetables were fresh and cooked perfectly including the okra. Okra can have a bitter taste and be slimy if not cooked properly.
I chose the Lamb Saag which is juicy tender lamb cubes simmered in tasty creamy spinach sauce with a side of Basmati rice ($16.99). While it may not look appealing to some, it was so flavorful. The lamb was tender, and the creamy spinach sauce did not overpower the lamb.
We also had Garlic Naan – Naan bread topped with garlic and chopped cilantro ($4.99). That was just delightful!
The portions are large so plan on taking home leftovers. The service was excellent. The food served hot and quickly. The atmosphere is nothing special but seeing the food is excellent it really does not affect one’s experience. They do have a lunch buffet on Friday, Saturday & Sunday from 11 am-2:30 pm which we want to be sure and try sometime.
Overall if you are feeling adventuresome, want fresh and flavorful food then India’s Grill Fort Myers is a must try.
