Indrani is a nice Indian restaurant situated in Corso Sempione Area (northern part of Milan). A friend of mine, who has visited India many times, gave me good reviews about it and I have to admit that I love the place.
I noticed the accuracy of the service and kindness of the staff. The owner is very professional and will guide you through the menu proposing the best choice for you. The peculiarity of the place is that, the menu includes different varieties of Indian dishes such as Northern and Western India recipes.
I love hot food and so I always go for spicy/hot dishes. If you are like me then you must try “Oh! Calcutta Fish” a fish dish with a delicious hot sauce made with a mix of several different spices, sultanas raisin and onions. However, if you prefer mild food you will find a wide selection of dishes including: Tandoori Chicken and Malabari Chicken (with a creamy sauce, originally from western India).
Among the vegetarian options I love the aubergines (Baighan Bartha), a tasty cream of aubergines, tomatoes sauces marinated with Northern Indian spices, and Chana Masala, a spiced chickpeas dish.
As a starter I always take Pappadomos and of course you must have the cheese and garlic naan as a side dish.
To drink I usually go for Indian beer but they do have good wines.
It is not so popular at the moment, which is a plus, and means that you will not need a reservation (unless you are with more than 4 or 5 people).
