  • Good pani puri and bhel puri. The mango kulfi is amazing!!
  • Quick-service Indian spot with commendable kati rolls and chaat.
  • Awesome rolls and chaat!!
  • Samosa chaat and the chicken Bihari is awesome. Make sure you check in to get the free kulfi ice cream. The prices are reasonable, food is delicious and everything is freshly made and made fast.
  • Among the best Indian food places in Manhattan. Lamb biryani, rasmalai, and kathi rolls are a must try. The best part bout the food was great flavors in everything with very low grease.
  • With onions, tomatoes, green peppers, and spicy green chilies, this is basically a delicious Indian-spiced breakfast burrito. Make sure you dip a few bites in the spicy green cilantro-rich sauce
  • Adorable little place! Great for some chai and chaat. Owner Priya is wonderful!
  • Order the palak patte ki chaat. Crunchy spinach leaves take the place of crackers in this chaat, and get topped with that saucy trio of yogurt, tamarind, and chili-mint.
  • Not sure what the hype is about. Lamb seekh Kabob and Pav bhaji did not taste good.
  • You can't go wrong with any of the selections here. Cheap, quick and DELICIOUS kathi (among many other choices).
  • Cheap, quick and does the trick!
  • Free wifi here. Password: 1234desi
  • Try their 'off menu' specials!! Bryani and also the new this week special PAV BHAJI utterly fabulous!!
  • Excellent spinach fritters!
  • Checkout the Bollywood movies downstairs for extra Mumbai flavor.
  • Chat rolls are fresh and tasty. Ask for a side of tamarind if you get a slider for dipping.
  • Samosa chatt
  • Kati rolls were pretty great
  • The samosa I got was definitely refried so it was wayyy too greasy. The Kati roll itself is good. I would skip the combo plate and just double up on the Kati roll if you're hungry.
  • The green chutney they give you is soooo good and not overly spicy - ginger, cilantro, and onion from what I can detect. Use it on the kind of dry chicken and your roll will be amazing
