“Samir (Aasif Mandvi), a sous chef at an upscale New York restaurant, becomes frustrated with his boss (Dean Winters) and quits. His dreams of studying French cooking in France are shattered after his father becomes ill and he must take over his family’s Indian restaurant, Tandoori Palace in Queens with two chefs who don’t know what they’re doing, an old fashioned wall and business being terrible since the only customers are Samir’s uncles sitting at a table playing cards. Samir doesn’t know what to do because his knowledge of Indian cooking is limited until he meets the larger than life gourmet chef and taxi driver Akbar (Naseeruddin Shah). Samir’s world is transformed via Akbar’s cooking lessons, the magic of the masala and a beautiful co-worker, Carrie (Jess Weixler).”
