Readers' Pick: With several nearly equal restaurants in town, picking the best is like a Florida election: Anyone could win. This year's top choice, by a chad, is Gandhi (it also could have been either Sher-e Punjab or India Oven). Gandhi dishes up its richly flavored and delicately balanced meals individually on platters with servings of dal, fruit and raita included. At Gandhi they'll treat you like a mahatma, and best of all, you don't have to be a rajah to afford it.
Readers' Poll Runner-up: (Tie) Sher-e Punjab, 853 E. Grant Road; India Oven, 2727 N. Campbell Ave.
