You can't crave for Indian food more than any other place but China! And to add to that...there aren't many, infact only this 1 which we could find when we started craving for Daal-Rice! It located prime on commercial Huaihai Raod. We tracked this restaurant online and called the owner and he was courteous enough to guide us to reach... More
