    Yet another Curry Hill favorite. Tasty vegetarian Kosher Indian fare is pungently spiced, super-fresh, and (like everything in Curry Hill) bargain priced. Try the $11 lunch buffet.

    Each one of us tried their different thaaliS n all of them r AmazinG n all fresh! But I will say their staff is rude n not well trained. But I will return just coz the food is worth it.

    It seemed like I asked my server for a free dinner when I tried to order iced tea. After his initial angry incredulity, everything went well. Great food for reasonable prices!

    Favorite dosas in town! The bhel puri and palak paneer are also great. Cap it all off with yummy gulab jamun and masala chai or Madras coffee.

    The dosas are crisp, idli are delicate, vadai are doughy, and the chana chaat is tangy - South Indian food at its tastiest! This cuisine is perfect for a hot summer night.

    The palak paneer is some of the creamiest I've ever had, and with big chunks of spinach. The staff is really friendly, too.

    Split the Pondicherry dosai and an order of onion pakora. A delicious meal for two that is very affordable.

    The best south Indian food in the NYC / JC area. The pongal reminded me of my days in Vellore.. and the chakara-pongal of murugan idli of Chennai

    Asked for spiciest food possible and the food had no spice in it. Even the pani poori which had a chili next to it was not spicy. When we complained they gave us hot sauce. The food was not tasty.

    HORRIBLE SERVICE!! If you haven't ordered, get up and leave. The most rude service I have received in 1,000+ restaurant visits. Manager was condescending and dismissive.
