Best home made Indian

If you want a great, cheap, fast and healthy lunch this is the place! If you want a huge menu, spending lots of time for service and preparation and spending money, go somewhere else.

Sree's is the kind of place where the owner, cook, server (all the same person) greets you with a smile, and makes sure that you have some protien, some fiber and some starch on your plate. Three vegetarian choices, or one chicken and one vegetarian, all served in styrofoam takeout containers. Eat in, or take it back to work. Good... More

The owner/cook/server/cashier (all the same woman) has been in the states for over 20 years now, but is originally from India. Very simple menu and food is served in a take out container. Chicken was very tender and curry wasn't overwhelming. On the tables are her homemade hot chili property pepper sauce that gives it an awesome taste if you... More

Ok, I am not an expert on Indian food but the fact that most of the people in line ahead of me were Indian made me think that things would be ok. Like the ability to pick my sides. Like the vegan options more than the chicken. Flavorful and filling and change back from a $10 even with a drink.... More

I've traveled extensively on business in India so I know from where I speak. This was very similar to corporate cafeterias for any large business process outsourcer. Same hot carts, small DIY signage, same drab appearance. The regulars were greeted with a cheery hello and the owner is trying, kinda trying. Pita in place of naan doesn't fool anyone. Channa...

They close at 3:00. Lunch is served buffet style and they dish it up for you. It is put into styrofoam, so you can take it out or eat at the counter or the few tables that are available. $5 includes choice of three entrees and rice. It was delicious and healthy. My husband ate lunch here twice on our... More
