indian curry hill
Any opinions on which is best? I have been to a couple. Pongal was fine but not exceptional spicing was restrained and food was flat.
For vegetarian, I like Pongal and Saravanaas. Unfortunately the food is better at Saravanaas but the atmosphere/ambiance is better at Pongal (i.e., too bright at Saravanaas).
I too like Copper Chimney for non-vegetarian offerings.
Otherwise, Roomali offers good indian "rolls" and Curry Leaf is a favorite for Indian-American takeout.
I think Pongal has slipped a lot in recent years. Curry Leaf is my go-to place for takeout, and I love Saravanaas for south indian. I also hear good things about Curry 'n Curry but am sadly out of their delivery range.
I also have to strongly second the Roomali rec. Sad to say I only discovered this place recently but am now totally addicted...
I will also chime in for Saravanaas. I just went there a few weeks ago, and the placed was packed with S. Indians. I ordered some rice dish that was unusual and delicious
Pongal used to be good, but no more.
I liked Chennai Gardens too, though I haven't been there in a while...
I don't know about curry leaf, but everyone I know who went there said it was horrible, perhaps they were ordering wrong or having different expectations?
BTW, what's good at curry leaf? anything veg that's good?
