I've heard from a number of people that this is supposed to be the best vegetarian Indian restaurant in the city but I don't think I know enough about Indian cuisine to be the judge of that. That said, I really enjoyed the food.

We started with the lentil donuts (not sure what they're called) that came with sambar (soup) to dip in. The donuts were good and then I just finished off the sambar on it's own. My friend and I shared a potato-onion dosa, which was pretty spectacular, and a veggie uthappam, which was good but I would have preferred it to be a little softer.

The restaurant has a pretty large-sized dining area but they tend to get busy. The decor is nothing to brag about, as it's pretty generic and sort of reminded me of a decorated cafeteria.
