Chinese, Thai or indian lunches near city hall?

The pickings are so slim around here. Is there a good Chinese, thai or indian lunch place I might have missed near City Hall?

    1. I work near there. Head over to Bayard there is a pretty good Thai restaurant and Shanghi Cuisine (good chinese). Not much around here for Indian. Lots of good asian with chinatown just north of us.

      1. Try Pakistan Tea House for Indian (Pakistani?). It's on Church St, a block or two north of chambers There is another place right across the street that also has Indian but I've forgotten the name. Both are pretty good, but I think PTH is more popular. There used to be a place on chambers called Kiran, but it has new owners I think and was closed for renovations last time I noticed, which was a few weeks ago.
        I also recommend the thai place on bayard (called pongsri) and in chinatown, which is really pretty close to city hall, there is certainly plenty of good chinese. For specific chinatown recommendations, I suggest doing some searches on this board for tips from the experts.
