Bollywood Theater may not offer a menu with as much breadth and depth as other Indian restaurants, but what it does, it does very well. A kati roll (we like the beef ones, $11.25) and a side of sambar ($3.25) will set you up nicely. Pay special attention to the seasonal chalkboard specials, like some sensational stinging nettle parathas in the spring.
