Foursquare Tips

  • An affordable vegetarian South Indian spot popular with Murray Hill lunch-eaters.
  • $8 vegan Indian lunch buffet is a steal.
  • If you didn't order the Samosa Chaat, then you did it all wrong. Order. The. Samosa. Chaat.
  • All-you-can-eat lunch special including choice of curry, rice, salad, and sweets (!) - for less than $10. (only weekdays)
  • The food is delicious but the waiters are rude liars!
  • Always bring a hot date. I did.
  • OMG! The lunch buffet is so delicious! Spicy and flavorful. The staff & owner are precious too. Dessert...yummy & light. Eat here....NOW!
  • Amazing dosa!
  • I love Indian food. Especially if it is this tasty then it feels like heaven... (4 of 4 petals via Fondu)
  • The Tiffin for two is a great sampler!
  • The idli in rasam bowl...divine. And so is the onion rava masala. Just order one of everything on the menu :)
  • This Choice Eats attendee in 2010 brought Dhokla, Briyani, Alv Tikki, and Raith!
  • Don't miss out on the Madras Coffee
  • get the onion rawa masala dosa along with kingfisher beer
  • The best south Indian food. It easily beats a lot of places in India as well. A must visit for food lovers.
  • Dosas are great. Cauliflower, Asian-style, is delish!
  • Ghee roast
  • Go with Dosas (and in general err towards South Indian food). Dosas they make are great
  • Keep an eye on time stamps of tips indicating prices. The lunch buffet is now $8.95.
  • One of my favorite Indian places in NYC. All vegetarian, and super flavorful. If you want it spicy, look for the pepper or ask them to turn it updefault here is very mild.
