Southern Indian Food

Going to be in Detroit for a few days coming up(Nov. 3-6). Staying in Livonia. Where's the best place for southern Indian food on Orchard Lake Rd. or there about?

  1. Dunno if NeeHee's is southern or northern ... It is Indian street food. Unlike anything I find in most Ibdian restaurants.

    It is located in Canton, convenient to Livonia.

    1. Try Udipi on Orchard Lake Rd. South Indian Vegetarian.

      Neehee's is great - all vegetarian. North and South Indian and Indo-Chinese in Canton.

      1. You're going to hear a *lot* of praise about Neehee's around these parts, because it's well-earned. I, too, have no idea about whether it's southern Indian or not, but the very-tasty-and-well-pulled-off menu is quite extensive, affordable, and it's a slayer of the "I'm not eating that if it doesn't have meat!" crowd. Truly: you don't miss meat when you're there.

        Do *not* forget their ice cream, either. Marvelous. The ginger, the fig, and the chocolate are all worth the money and time. Mix up the chocolate and ginger for great results!

          Old post I know, but just to add my 2 cents.

          Neehee's a good, I love their Gobi Machurian HOWEVER, if you are a Naan lover you won't find any here. The food is great, but sometimes no Naan is a show stopper =)
