The Yellow Chilli, an Indian food chain that actually originated in India, will arrive at Plano’s Shops at Legacy this summer for its first Texas location.

The eatery will debut at 5700 Legacy Drive, becoming only the fourth stateside location for the brand which operates mostly in India and the Middle East. Founded by Indian celebrity chef Sanjeev Kapoor who also created the menu, The Yellow Chilli offers a “gastronomic tour” across India, according to a press release announcing its local arrival.

Diners will find a rather lengthy menu with dishes like shaam savera (spinach koftas filled with creamed cottage cheese, served floating on a tomato butter gravy) alongside puran singh da tariwala murgh (a chicken gravy), plus a long list of curries, soups, salads, rice dishes, Indian flatbreads, and entrees featuring chicken, fish, lamb or vegetarian options.

Legacy West, the newer development across the tollway has arguably had more attention as of late, however, The Shops at Legacy is still considered a dining destination. Stalwarts like The Village Burger Bar and Cru Food & Wine Bar are holding it down, plus there are the new additions of Houston’s health-conscious Bellagreen, Olivella’s Neapolitan pizzas, as well as Shumi Japanese Cuisine, the buzzy 21-course omakase restaurant from a couple of renowned sushi chefs.

The Yellow Chilli will arrive sometime this summer, stay tuned for the exact date of its Plano debut.
