Tips

  • Chai is pretty good.
  • Get the small rice bowl w two vegetables for $3. It is a filling meal and tastier than an entree at a typical sit-down joint in Curry Hill
  • Ask for yogurt & onions on your rice & vegetables after they come out of the microwave (no charge)
  • So comforting to know that 24 hours/day, 7 days/week, someone is willing to hand you an awesome bowl of food for $3.50. The huge smiles are free. Reasonstolovenewyork.
  • This slim takeout spot caters to NYU students and Indian cab drivers. The all-vegetarian food is very cheap and satisfying (try the rajma), good for late night snacks in the East Village.
  • Go for the samosa and chickpeas chaat ($5.50). "Crisp samosas are split open and doused in spicy stewed chickpeas, tangy yogurt, sweet tamarind-date chutney, spicy cilantro chutney and raw onions.
  • Go for the samosa and chickpeas chaat ($4). "Crisp samosas are split open and doused in spicy stewed chickpeas, tangy yogurt, sweet tamarind-date chutney, spicy cilantro chutney and raw onions."
