The basmati radiates the flavors of caramelized vegetables, spices and herbs from within and is a dish at once delicious and soulful. The Persis menu also dabbles in the major cuisines of India with a roundup of familiar suspects: chicken tikka masala, butter chicken, lamb rogan josh and goat curry. Additionally, many South Indian dishes are featured on the menu and with events. “Dosa Dosa,” a crêpe fest held every Thursday night in the Ballantyne location, offers 22 varieties of dosas, most of them vegetarian.
