Foursquare Tips

  • 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!!
  • 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.
  • Cheap, quick and does the trick!

  • The lamb Kathi roll Was great.
