Village Voice's Description

Sapthagiri means "Seven Hills," and this India Square spot mounts the most diverse and tasty vegetarian menu anywhere in the metropolitan area. The dosas are top notch, and encompass a range of oddities rarely seen elsewhere. An example is pesarattu upma, boasting a fermented mung-bean wrapper, and a filling of cream of wheat goosed up with black mustard seeds, pistachios, and other flavorful ingredients. The upma is also available as a dish on its own, and is definitely worth ordering. There are rare southern Indian vegetable curries, including gutti vankaya-baby eggplants immersed in a tomatoey peanut sauce. The place is crowded on the weekends, chill during the week.

    Excellent Indian with frequent—and good—buffets. Go on Wednesday nights for unlimited chaat and dosas made to order.

    Authentic South Indian food...Kanchipuram Idly a must try!

  • alex v. on 02/23/10

    Best Indian food I've ever had. Get the tomato-butter paneer makhki & the incredible coconut bread w/ coconut chutney. Even coconut haters like me were smitten. Also: $14 & out per person. AFTER TIP.

  • Prakash M. on 05/21/10

    IMO the best South Indian restaurant on Indian street in Jersey City

  • Milap J. on 03/24/14

    Service was meh. Got masala chai even though I didn't ask for it. No excuse for messing that up since it was after I got my check...
