Does anyone know if the Chennai Garden on the UES has any relation to the one in Curry Hill on E.27th?

    Don't think so, the UES one is just called Chennai. It's on 1st ave in the low 90's/high 80's somewhere. I ordered the broccoli jalfrazie, which was FANTASTIC. This is the first time in a long time that I've had Indian food that wasn't greasy and didn't make me feel all heavy afterwards. This place is really impressive (and not just by UES standards)

      I noticed them on seamless web and ordered a mushroom utthappam, daal palak and lemon rice. It arrived in 1/2 hour piping hot. Very tasty. The rice was only $3 and I could have eaten that alone. The takeout menu says other locations are Dakshin (First Ave a few blocks away) and Swagat on Amsterdam. Says nothing about Chennai Garden in curry hill. Will definetely order again.

        I believe it is just called Chennai, no Garden. The menu looks like a nice alternative to Chennai Garden. I can't wait to try it.

          OK. So I ordered from Chennai on the UES tonight. I still don't know if it's associated with the one in Curry Hill, but it was pretty darn good. Reasonably priced and quick, friendly delivery. The only item I wouldn't order again was the steamed lentil cake- too blah. The paneer-mushroom dosa was SUPER. I'm glad to have this place in my neighborhood, something different from the other Indian restaurants around.

              Are you sure you ate the iddli with sambar or dal? The best to eat it with is poddi
