This place can boast of having one of the authentic south Indian food I had outside India. They serve in a traditional manner and service is very good.

I had pongal. The taste was very good though a liitle bit saggy. Ambiance normal for the budget restaurant.

Been there a couple of times for Vegetarian Lunch Buffet
Great variety
All preparations taste and smell fresh (not the typical stale, oily, greasy food)
Don't know why (not that it matters), but most of the Vegetarian Indian restaurants in this neighborhood are Kosher
Service with a smile is valid ...................... Staff attentive as long as they do not have large groups. Their focus entirely shifts to that group, thereby ignoring the rest ... especially if someone is solo

I started eating here in college. It was my first exposure to Indian food and over the years with the help of the waiters I learned which foods I liked and didn't like. My husband and I have been eating here for many many years and the food is always great, always top quality. You will also see many Indian people eating here, so you know it's authentic and good.

I have in 10 + years of coming here hardly ever branched away from the dosa here which is always spectacular. And if you are a chili fiend, they have no qualms about throwing in lots in the madras rava masala dosa !! Brilliant...I always look forward to it when I go to NYC
