Village Voice's Description

Though Staten Island rarely receives plaudits for its restaurants, the plucky island leads the way in Sri Lankan cooking, thanks to a thriving immigrant community that demands great food. Catering to the culinary needs of Buddhists, Muslims, and Hindus, New Asha stirs up "black curries" made with complex toasted spice mixtures, proffered with wonderful homemade breads such as bowl-shaped hoppers (a/k/a appam) and potato-stuffed thosai.

    Cheap curries and snacks abound here, along with fried snacks like dhal vada and vegetable roti.

    Just ask for a mix of things and they'll make you a heaping pile of dericiousness

  • Bill B. on 06/20/11

    The main attraction is black curried goat, which is similar to Indian curry but made spicier and richer by pan-roasting the spices.
