    The samosa with chickpeas is really good. They cover one ($3) or two ($5) samosas with chana, then add a yogurt sauce and a tamarind sauce. The chana crumbles into the samosa and the flavors combine.

    The chai here is hands down the best I've had in NYC. Chai is always brewed fresh and never stored in a thermos so you get a piping hot cup of chai every time. Flavored with a hint of Cardamom.

    This, easy to miss, cheap (we're talking $1 samosas) hole-in- the-wall is a popular cabby joint in West Soho. You won't hear much English, but we're not complaining. Read more

    Cash only spot. Chicken Biryani is pretty good. Portions are generous. Dude is super nice (brown discount?) and was willing to give us more food. Oh and its super cheap. You can't go wrong!

    This is how it works: For $ 5 you get a dish of rice to which you can add three sides of your choice (okra, eggplant, lentil, lam, chicken, fish and daily specials). Read more

    They make the first batch of fresh biryani at 11am for the cabbie lunch rush and the next batch at 3:30pm. Also try the fantastic meat-filled pastry puffs.

    Chicken sandwich is $4 and tasty. Get a samosa too if you're hungry. Add chickpeas ("chole") to the samosa if you're really hungry.

    For $6 you'll get a big plate of biryani and chickpeas. Think about a cart chicken over rice and make it 2x as good. A little ding for the lack of yogurt availability, but I'll survive

    The chai is really good and the samosa w/chickpeas is a great deal - get full on $3, or 2 samosas if youre real hungry. Good veg options. I don't do rice & veg because they usually give too much rice.

    Hole in the wall where all the cabbies go so you know it's authentic. Best samosa in the city, and the chai and chicken sandwich are tasty too.

    This hole in the wall has some of the best and cheapest curries in town. Try the chopped chicken or yellow lentils. Add a samosa if you're still hungry!

    Chicken sandwich is $4, served on a big, flat hamburger bun with shredded lettuce, tomato, onion and mayo, and is awesome. Get a $1 veggie samosa while you're at it.

    Great prices, authentic food, and friendly people. Very little space to eat, but it's a good grab-and-go spot. Amazing samosas.

    If you're craving something delicious and affordable get a $1 samosa and a $2 "chicken patty" (ground chicken in a flaky croissant-like dough) and revel in this secret deal

    Skip the chicken biryani and get the large three-veggie plate, featuring a rotating cast of deliciousness (the eggplant is the best though).
