“Best deal in Downtown Pittsburgh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

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 spice level, and good food! One caveat: it's pita and not naan. Who cares! Absolutely great place for a quick and economical lunch.

“Authentic Simple Indian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

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 can take the heat.

“quick, filling, good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

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. I tend to sit there and eat alone - the curry smell scares my co-workers who eat ham on white every day.

“GREAT indian homecooking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012

ok, so it was a little spicey for my taste but wow! Basically its like if you had this lovely Indian Aunt and you went over for lunch! She is so nice and a great cook. So its diffferent every day! $5 is the cost for your meal and its A LOT of food!!!! I ate half and couldn't eat anymore. And I can Eat!!
My complaint is that a little hot/spicy for MY taste, but not intolerable. I find "mild" salsa too spicy to give you an idea. But it was sooo yummy! And amazing value for the amount of food you get. I can't even get 2 slices of pizza for under $5!
Enjoy!
