This is one of the few Indian restaurants I''ve visited that does both South Indian and North Indian specialties very well. We had a dosa (a big, South Indian crepe) and a curry (their "Chicken Chettinad" -- a chef's special) and both were very well done. (The "Chicken Chettinad" is heavy on black pepper and coriander, and had a bit of lemon grass -- an unusual touch -- as a garnish.)

Service was attentive and quick. The restaurant was also very generous with the pappadums and with the chutneys in which to dip them, and even gave us a free dessert. The only thing we thought could use improvement was the chai masala, which was brewed without milk already in it and was relatively weak. We'll be back to try some of their other dishes.

My favorite Indian delivery in the UES/East Harlem area, hands down. Prices seem pretty standard (about $10 for a vegetarian entree, rice and bread are extra), but they will make special orders if you ask nicely and clearly explain what you want. Best masala sauce I've had in NYC yet.

This place was wonderful, the service terrific, and the food extraordinary. My husband and I had the lamb vindaloo as an entree, and numerous appetizers. The servers were all darling and even gave us a complimentary dessert. The place is inexpensive, and the food is delicious. Truly a hidden gem.
