Intro to Indian Food

I am an Indian cuisine virgin. All I know is that there's curry involved. What is the best way to get introduced to it with a representative sampling? Are there single dishes that will give me a good idea whether I will like the genre as a whole?

-Bonus points for tips involving eateries in the Saint Louis, MO area.
-I'm not ready yet to try to cook anything myself - I wouldn't want to do it wrong, then swear off Indian because I can't make it right.
-Also, I like spicy as well as hot (sure there's a difference!) but not too hot. Not so hot you can't taste anything after the first bite. More like a medium+.
