You cannot eat Indian food. Even if the dish you get doesn't contain something you're allergic to in it, it's probably contaminated. And anaphalaxis is not fun. (I did not go into anaphalaxis last night) Indian food is no longer an option. Except at Diva, if you stick to bread and appatizers or their lamb curry. Other lamb curry not so safe. Other place's naan is. Remember this.

I'm allergic to Cashews, Pistachio's and Mango's (Tree Nuts)

I have also had reactions to Indian foods that (supposedly) don't contain these things.

I think you are right in that there's general cross-contamination. My guess is that these places use enough nuts that the powder is in the air and gets into things even with the best of care. Indian food prepared in a kitchen that wasn't nut-infested should be OK, right?
