Vegetarian Indian near Edison New Jersey

Looking to meet a friend halfway between NYC and Philadelphia for a great vegetarian Indian dinner mid-week. Edison NJ looks like the locale, and we prefer "pure veg" restaurants (no meat on the menu, but dairy is fine). It doesn't have to be fancy but should be relaxed. We love south Indian cuisines best. Suggestions?

  1. Saravanaa Bhavan at 149 Wood Ave and Jhudpi at 1679 Oak Tree Road are both in Edison and suit your needs perfectly. If you want to be in Iselin (and the heart of the Indian strip) try Chowpatty at 1351 Oak Tree Road, about a half mile from the other two.

    Tell us how you like them!

        +1 for chowpatty. I'm moving to western PA soon and I am going to miss those dosas.
