Annpurna Chaat King in Colonie, anyone been there?

I want to recommend this place, it's on Albany-Shaker Rd in Colonie. It's kind of hole-in-the-wallish looking, attached to an Indian grocery. I went recently visiting my mother. All vegetarian, many different 'chaat's which is Indian street food. I got a samosa chaat....this is a samosa, cut in a few chunks, covered with a channa masala chickpea type thing, then some yogurt, mint chutney, tamarind chutney, chopped onion, and cilantro, and some crunchy curry-flavored fried snack mix stuff on top. hard to describe, but the layers of various stuff are great! cost..$5. definitely could be a meal. they also have a board with daily specials for $7...veg. entrees like palak paneer that come with rice and bread.

no website, but they do have a facebook page....and they aren't super fast, they are in the kitchen cooking for you while you wait, not microwaving either. my friend liked her food too, she got a dosa along with her samosa chaat. dosa is a rice flour crepe with a potato/pea filling inside. wish I lived in the area, nothing like this in western Mass...
