NOBLESVILLE, Ind. – Authentic Indian cuisine right in Noblesville.

“Dhaba Indy” gets its name from a word meaning road side restaurant in India. Located at 14350 Mundy Dr. Suite 700 in Noblesville, the restaurant brings South Indian, North Indian, Indo-Chinese and Thai cuisine to central Indiana.

“Indian food has so many varieties—Asian, Middle Eastern—and they all blend together!” says Dandaram with Dhaba Indy.

“The population here is multicultural. It is growing!”

The chef perfected his culinary skills in his native country before starting a lime green food truck in Indianapolis. People loved it so much that he expanded the menu to offer a daily buffet in Noblesville.

“The newcomers, I recommend they try the buffet. Have 12-15 dishes to try on and a little bit of everything,” he said. “Go for it and then go get a second plate with the one you like. Take a menu and mark down the ones you like and you know which one to order next time.”
