Now Open Near The Lindley: Virraaj, a Modern Indian Eatery

Virraaj is named for the Sanskrit word that means sovereignty, excellence, and splendor. It also refers to an entity responsible for creation. It’s a fitting name for the newly opened eatery, since the chef strives to create excellent cuisine. He does it by combining both traditional and contemporary elements of Indian cooking.

Order curbside pickup or delivery, or sit down inside or outside to enjoy the revamped Indian fare. Start with apps such as the veggie samosas or the paneer pakora if you want to taste something familiar, or try a dish you’ve never heard of before—like the bhel ka mel. It features puffed rice with vermicelli, chickpeas, onions, mango, cilantro, and peanuts, all embellished with tamarind sauce. For the main course, your options range from lamb vindaloo and chili crab masala to kasoori paneer tikka and saag paneer.
