Named after head Chef Prasad Chirnomula, the eatery specializes in crafting the subtle and delicate flavors that are so well known in the four culinary regions of India.

“Just as the United States is home to a melting pot of culinary traditions- so too is India, whose four regions each produce food distinct in its flavors and techniques. Chef Prasad has long hoped that eating at his restaurants will enlighten the palates of his guests to the subtleties and variations of flavor that India offers,” reads the restaurant’s website.

On the menu, you’ll find a glorious array of authentic Indian cuisine. From classic chicken entrees like tikka masala and vindaloo to tandoori kabobs and veggie options, it’s nearly impossible not to find something you’ll enjoy to the last bite.

Chef Prasad has earned 4.5/5 stars on Yelp, which is impressive considering the eatery was established just last year. Guests enjoy the food, the atmosphere and of course, the friendly service.

“I recently had lunch at Chef Prasad's with my husband and another couple. The food was delicious! Everything was fresh, well spiced, served hot and beautifully presented. The service was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful in making food choices! I highly suggest you try lunch or dinner there,” wrote SuAnn D. in an April 11 Yelp review.
