Village Voice's Description

There are now plenty of places in Curry Hill where you can get a masala dosa, the delicious potato-filled crepe of South India, but Chennai Garden has carried the obsession further than most other establishments, offering manifold variations like rava dosa (with a supple Cream of Wheat batter), paper dosa (an ultra-thin unfilled crepe), and, my fave, a "gunpowder" masala dosa hosed with hot pepper. In addition to such southern snacks as iddly and utthappam, the menu goes exploring in the Pujab and Gujarat, respectively, for specialties like okra masala and undhiyu, an unusual stew of yam, snow peas, and eggplant.

Tips from foursquare

  • The Corcoran Group on 09/17/10

    A nice spot for a casual date. Try their $14.95 combination dinners. The Bhel Puri is fantastic and their samosas are delicious.

  • Brandon A. on 07/22/09

    get a dosa, they're great! everything on the menu is pretty great. some of the best south and north Indian in NYC.

  • Gregg W. on 09/13/10

    $6.95 lunch buffet. Cheaper than McDonalds, and healthier/better tasting!

  • Serious Eats on 03/15/13

    A solid, affordable destination for South Indian dinners.

  • Juan A. on 03/14/13

    Good dosa lunch special!
