Description: Located in a converted house in the University District, Cedars Restaurant on Brooklyn offers a pleasant, homey atmosphere and well-prepared, authentic Mediterranean and Indian cuisine. Begin with the flavorful mulligatawny soup or a traditional Mediterranean or Caesar salad. Combo plates include falafel, gyro or shish kabob served with hummus and pita bread. Among the myriad meatless dishes are baigan bhartha (eggplant baked with onions, tomatoes and spices) and vegetable kofta (mixed vegetables with fresh cheese balls served in a butter sauce). There's also a long list of tandoori-style entrées such as the Tandoori Surprise (an assortment of chicken, lamb, beef and fish served with onions and lemons) or the Tandoori Seafood (halibut, cod, salmon and prawns). Choose from a long list of traditional Indian breads baked fresh daily to accompany your meal.

Very friendly staff and peaceful environment, Cedars in the UDistrict is one of our favorite local restaurants. We like to try new things every time we go but we always agree that the garlic naan is a most! With a wide variety of options spanning Indian and Mediterranean cuisine, there is something for everyone. I am always pleased at the number of vegetarian options available as well. My personal favorite is the "channa masala" and the "tikka masala." Each dish is easily two meals and leftovers translate well the next day. We are also huge fans of the chai and highly recommend it. Always a pleasure eating at Cedars!

I had the tandoori lamb which came with rice pilaf and vegetables. It was really really good. Nicely spicy and tender. The pilaf and vegetables went perfectly with it. They had decent wine at reasonable prices. Great service. They have a nice variety of middle Eastern a Indian dishes. Seating was available inside or outside. All in all a delightful dinner. I highly recommend Cedars on Brooklyn.

I ordered my favorite Indian dish, palak paneer and what I got was a few chunks of cheese with pureed spinach - SO bland. I ended up taking it home and adding the rest of the ingredients. The naan, however was perfect, and the service was pretty good.

Excellent Madras. They get the spice right!! Most places under spice. Naan choices are great. Shish Kabob is enough for 2. Beer selection is great if they actually have it. Yogurt was outstanding. Service is a little abrupt but not a big deal. The food is just that good!
