        Sukhadia near rockfeller is an option as well. Pongal (at least in the past)and Chennai garden serve some Gujarati food (I know it sounds strange) but it's not that great.

        1. re: parth

          Sukhadia is OK. They serve multi-regional vegetarian, but Gujarati is the focus. Considering how many Gujaratis there are in the area, there are surprisingly few restaurants, but maybe there's not enough demand among non-Indians. There's a Gujarati Christian community too, with a church in Sunset Park, but I doubt I'll ever see a non-veg Gujarati restaurant.

          DImple eventually became something else, and I don't know if the successor still exists.

            I am no expert on Gujarati, but a friend gave the thumbs down to the thali at Pongal. Is Vatan not Gujarati?

              Bhojan isn't bad either

                While Bhojan has a Gujerati thali and some Gujerati dishes, it is a more general-Indian vegetarian place.
