Any thoughts on Sukhaida

I was looking at menu pages and there seem to be mixed reviews for this place. Has anyone been recently, and do you have any recommendations?

Thanks.

Lloyd

    If you mean Sukhadia's on 45th, I like it a lot. There is the sweet shop in the front and food food in the back. Not too pricey, tasted pretty authentic to me--I spent three weeks in India. I went for the buffet lunch on a weekend and everyone there was Indian. [One problem was that I went late and since it was buffet, the food was kind of running out. So find out the hours and go more toward the beginning. The chai is really delicious.] My Indian friend had her brother's engagement party there and they all LOVED the food.

      I have never been to India, but I have had Sukhadia's buffet lunch, chaat; and the sweets--all really good, though I am particularly fond of the sweets.
      I have found that the people who work by the sweet counter are very nice about givig out samples, to help you make a decision.

        I am a big fan. It is very casual, FYI, but they do have wait service in the back. I love the samosa chat.
