This is some of the best Indian food in Manhattan. But you definitely go for the food, not the atmosphere. It's almost like a cafeteria, and the tables are quite close together. However, you won't care about any of that once you take a bite of your Paper Thin Masala Dosa! And don't forget to have some delicious masala tea to finish off your meal. YUMM!!!

Good food. But very poor service.
Uttapam recommended.
14 idli is their speciality.
But had much better South Indian in jersey city and Edison.

Friendly Service with patio service. Excellent vegetarian thali and masala dosa, served quickly. The thali comes with an assortment of lentils, vegetable sides, yoghurt, chutney, soup and desert. Spice/heat is subtle; flavour is excellent. For some reason, a freshly warmed chapatti was carefully folded on top of a papadam (soggy). Otherwise, a delightful meal.
