This is a place of fix-priced menus -- around $10 for lunch and $16 for dinner. The food is probably healthy (rice, legumes, cooked vegetables), and you do get "refill" for anything you wish, but the flavors are bland and fail to satisfy the appetite...More

This place has some of the best vegetarian food in the city. It's Indian food not simmered in loads of oil. Spices are superbly balances and at the end of a meal, I feel light and rejuvenated.
