India Garden Head Chef Babul flips naan for the restaurant’s inaugural batch of customers. India Garden, the new Indian restaurant located at 65 East College Street, opened for business Thursday. The establishment takes the place of Magpie Pizza, which relocated to Sheffield Village in November 2015. The restaurant offers traditional northern Indian cuisine, desserts and fresh breads. It will serve dinner until 10 p.m. every day of the week. Owners Ramesh Sharma and Sanjeev Sharma run another India Garden location in Lakewood and own an additional restaurant there, Namaste, which serves southern Indian food. India Garden offers vegan, vegetarian and meat options. Its opening in Oberlin was a step toward expanding the owners’ chain of restaurants.
