In a strip mall in a less than salubrious area of North East Philly.Spartan but clean with an extensive menu of vegetarian Indian food.Dosa was a little too thick and not crisp enough,filling was ok but not enough of it for the size of the dosa.Okra dish was mainly onions.Dal was good but potato and cauliflower curry not so much.Portions were large but quality lacking and too much oil. Parathas also too greasy.

Hi We visited with family , so in all we were 4 adults and a child. It is a small place and not a great ambience , nevertheless we were hoping food would be good. The service was so delayed that our 3 year old was extremely hungry and people with kids were already at the cashier's asking for when their food would arrive. That is because there is a complete shortage of man power. There are 3 ppl and taking all orders, providing the check , returning the card and the last in their order- serving food , have to be shared amongst them - which is definitely very hard. We never got our appetizers, we ended up canceling them because they brought our entrees first. When asked , they said it is up to the Chef !! For a place that is a single room size , we found we were being taken for a ride. I give it two stars only because their portion sizes were decent. That said , when we gave our order , I would have expected some indication from our waiter what we were ordering was going to be more than enough. Their dosa was really bad and our little one would not have a bite of it. When our check arrived , I could only laugh - they added 18% gratuity when there is a party of 4- I wonder how families with two kids can ever dine in here. I thought they were trying to fleece whoever got in there. We paid and came out extremely unhappy and feeling totally ripped off! We have never paid that amount for the exact same bunch ever before - Enuf said! Not going back there again!
