Seattle isn't exactly London or Mumbai when it comes to Indian restaurants, but there's some relief for curry lovers at Cedars, a family run 'Indian' with a few eastern Mediterranean cameos (falafel and gyros mainly). The measuring stick for many is the chicken tikka masala or the creamy butter chicken. Lentils, aloo gobi and paneer provide comfort for vegetarians.

The covered wooden patio is a cool hangout in nice weather.
