Neha Palace – The Hidden Gem Of Yonkers
With over 30,000 years of history, India’s culinary heritage is truly unparalleled. Blessed with bountiful resources, including the world’s most flavorful spices, India is a hotbed of delicious classic cuisines and fresh culinary experimentation. In India, food is sacred, the centerpiece at the heart of every community. It nourishes both body and spirit.
Far from the shores of Bhārata (India’s name in Sanskrit, the official language of Hinduism), New York’s beautiful Westchester County is home to one of the most authentic Indian eating experiences outside the country itself. This place is Neha Palace.
Dining in India is an extremely communal event. There, cooking is, at its core, an act of generosity. It is customary to share one’s food with anyone who wants it, even strangers.
Neha Palace brings this philosophy to Westchester County. Visit during lunch and join our chefs in our “live” kitchen buffet, as we honor the natural wholesomeness of quality ingredients and the warmth of tight-knit communities.
Moreso than almost any other country in the world, India represents an exciting meeting of traditional culture and contemporary innovation. Temples dating from the 12th century sit beside ultra-modern steel skyscrapers. Birthplace of ancient traditions, including Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism, and Sikhism, India is also the world’s most populous democratic nation.
And its regional cuisines are as varied as its spiritual and cultural traditions.
Neha Palace’s menu is meant to epitomize India’s marriage of old and new.
From Northern India, and the kitchens of the Muslim Mughal Emperors, comes biryani, fine basmati rice spiced with nutmeg, cloves, cardamom, coriander, and ginger then topped with an intense curry of meat or vegetables. From India’s southern state of Goa comes the fiery vindaloo, lamb or chicken marinated overnight in vinegar, sugar, fresh ginger, and red Kashmiri chillies. From the western sea coast, we’ve brought methi machli, boneless fish in a sauce of fenugreek, cumin, and turmeric. All paired with world-class wines from our full, licensed bar!
Only a stone’s throw from New York City, at the intersection of I-87, the Cross County Parkway, and the Bronx River Parkway, Neha Palace embodies the rich culinary heritage of India, right in your backyard.
