Mr. India, Newburyport

Standout qualities: Careful preparation and long cooking times yield flavorful curries, tandooris, and of course delicate Indian bread, from naan to puri.

What’s New: Chef Ganesh Bista took over the restaurant from previous owners last summer, updating the space and improving the cuisine.

Insider tip: Bista hails originally from Nepal, in the Himalayan Mountains. For something a little different, explore the Nepalese section of the menu, featuring dishes like Kathmandu Mix Chaw Chaow.
