By comparison, our final tastes felt like afterthoughts. Chai tea lacked both the milkiness and hint of spice that you'd find at just about any other Indian restaurant. Raja was out of gulab jamun (the classic Indian dessert of rosewater-soaked cheese balls) during two visits. Kheer, a creamy rice pudding tinged with cardamom and topped with almond slices, made for a decent but unspectacular finish. Still, after the entrees I'd had it would have taken a tandoor-roasted Twinkie to send me out the door feeling less than satisfied. Put simply, Raja delivers where it counts.
