Indian food in/near Cedar Rapids, IA

I've been working in the Amanas for the past few months and can't get over a craving for Indian food. I did a google search and found a place in Coralville/Iowa City that had good recs, but it's been flooded out. So I'm turning my sights to Cedar Rapids. Is there any half way decent Indian food in Cedar Rapids that has not been flooded out? Or, if anyone knows of anything in one of the small towns near the Amanas, please, help!

Feeding a Yen: Foreign Beers You Miss and Can't Find Here

I second the Caffrey's. It was my favorite to drink when I was in London, and I was devastated when they stopped US production. I thought maybe I was romanticizing the taste, but a recent trip to Toronto (where you can get it) confirmed that it is absolutely delicious.

STL: NY/East Coast style pizza

The Westport Pizza Co at the Westport Plaza has "New York style pizza." I don't know how authentic it is, but I like it.

I second the Dewey's suggestions, and also recommend Cicero's in U City.

STL recommendations, please

There's a location of Growler's Pub near Westport, not too far for the cab. They have fantastic food and a massive beer selection. Highly recommended!

In Westport itself, try the Westport Pizza Co. They do a good pizza by the slice. The service at Pujols often leaves something to be desired, but they do have good food. Ozzie's and the Trainwreck both have good food and decent prices.
