“What the Fearless Critic books and apps have that UrbanSpoon and Yelp don’t is a complete lack of bullshit.”
“I’ve spent years driving around with Zagat...but I think I’ll replace it with this Fearless Critic guide.”

Tiny shop with a few tables and a vast menu highlighting vegetarian Indian dishes

This is one of the few places anywhere that showcases the enormous range of food available in India. Like the U.S. (i.e. here we have lobster rolls in New England and chicken-fried steak in the South), India is a large country with many regional and ethnic specialties. Here you can try Gujarati, Jain, Punjabi, South Indian, Swaminarayan, Kathiyawadi—all different types of Indian food, many of which are not featured on most menus around town.

The owners are Gujarati so it stands to reason that their specialties from that region are a good bet here. Order a combo plate (aka thali) off of the Gujarati section of the menu and you can try a full meal for under $10. The rest of the menu consists of chaat—Indian street food. The selection is vast, and the prices are mostly under $3, making this a good place to get acquainted with a variety of Indian specialties.

Though it is clean and well-lit, there is no atmosphere to speak of and it is very small, so most folks get their food to go, which is a good idea. There is often a wait during peak hours as they make most things to order, and some chaat are not available all the time...but that is to be expected with a small family-run place.
