All the usual Indian sides were available, including cooling raita (spiced yogurt), a wise investment at just $2, and particularly good puri (puffy fried bread) for $2.95. But unlike at some Miami Indian joints where all extras cost extra, Renaisa's rice, a big platter, came free, as did three tasty chutneys: bittersweet tamarind, tangy red onion, and sinus-clearing cilantro. Complimentary pappadams (crispy-fried lentil crackers) accompanied the relishes on one visit, but not the other. All the above, plus especially generous portions for an Indian restaurant and Renaisa's money-saving BYOB policy, make this an unusually neighborly, if not your usual neighborhood, restaurant.
