      Had lunch at a chowhound pick Pho99, Vietnamese Restaurant the other day.
      Personally from this list, have not tried any of the Indian Restaurants , except for hot breads. Normally we go to Oak Tree Road or Bombay Gardens in East Brunswick.

      However, It was a beautiful day.
      Took note of the explosion of restaurants in that area and wanted to cross reference real world restaurant data to chowhound so I could become educated on new places to dine. Spent about 30 minutes driving and documenting, then another 30 minutes at home data mining and compiling.

      Where will I go based on my research
      1st stop will be Punjabi Rasoi - looks to be a true mom and pop with glowing reports from other entities on the Internet

      2nd stop Royal Thai for IndoChinese - I Love IndoChinese

      3rd stop Paratha Junction - based on a recent chowhound post want to give it a try.

      1. re: glutton

        We tried Paratha Junction this past weekend and the food is great! We had cauliflower and fish paratha and they are out of this world. Also they had some saag dishes as daily specials. I had the saag chicken and it is the best saag I've ever had.

        We had a great meal. Thanks a lot for the list!

        1. re: cindytong

          Paratha Junction received a nice review in the NY Times a couple of weeks ago:

      2. Udipi Cafe no longer operates the Parsippany location. It has changed names and ownership after a decline and is now quite good.

        1. re: jmoryl

          Udipi Cafe website needs to be updated, they still show the Parsippany NJ location.

          1. re: shabbystorm

            Update on former Parsippany location of Udipi:
            It is now another Indian vegetarian place called Mysore Woodlands. Based on several visits to the lunch buffet, the quality is excellent (packed with Indian customers on a recent Saturday, too).

        2. Balaji Express seemed to be closed yesterday (10/26/09). It was dark and there were at least two FedEx delivery notices stuck in the door, indicating more than just one day off.

          1. re: eleeper

            Belaji still closed (01/18/10), and their web site is gone as well. Pho 99 seemed dark as seen from the road also. Paratha Junction was open and doing business, though.

            1. re: eleeper

              Pho 99 is not closed. They are not open for business on Monday, which may explain why the restaurant "seemed dark" when you drove by.

              1. re: ambrose

                Thanks. I thought that might be the case.
