Saturday lunch @ Jackson Heights [moved from Manhattan board]

I'm going to Jackson Heights on Saturday to buy clothes for an Indian wedding and am looking for an authentic/delicious Indian lunch spot. Of course, everyone knows Jackson Diner but i'm curious if (a) it lives up to the hype, or (b) there's something better out there. If anyone has insight either way let me know.

    Jackson Diner isn't as good as it used to be, which is where the hype cam from, but is not even remotely close to bad, as the more fatalistic here would have it. It's clean, nicely decorated (especially when most places in the nabe aren't decorated at all), and crowded, noisy and cheerful during weekend brunch.
