I really love the diversity of restaurants in NYC and South Asian cuisines are some of my favourites (there are even kinds of south Asian cuisine or Indian cuisines that are rare in other parts of the country, like Bengali/Bangladeshi restaurants that have special fish dishes etc. like one in the Bronx -- it seems a lot of the time most Indian restaurant menus in many cities are all too similar, usually north Indian "Mughlai type" cuisine -- not to say I don't like that, but I love many other less common Indian cuisines that it seems NYC can offer).

What would you say would be the best Indian restaurants in New York city, based on your personal opinion?

Govinda's Lunch on 305 Schermerhorn St. in Brooklyn (basement of the Hare Krishna temple) is excellent and quite affordable. Their lunch buffet has $3, $5, and $8 options, all healthy and very filling. They have plenty of great Bengali food as well as various others.

Govinda's Vegetarian Grill on 111-14 101 Avenue in South Richmond Hill, Queens (unconnected to the above-mentioned restaurant, despite the similar name) also has fantastic and affordable food. Theirs tends to lean toward Bhojpuri cuisine with Caribbean influence, reflective of the heavy West Indian Hindustani population in the area. They also have a number of super delicious meat-analogue dishes.

Those are two you don't want to miss.

For the longest while I though SPICE COVE (E. 6th...Indiantown) was the best becasue their Lamb Vindaloo was always tender, spicy, plentiful and cheap. Last time it looked like they switched owners and food suffered.

(I always give extra points for low cost, so SWANK need not apply.)

I like SONAR GHAOW (sp??) also E. 6th.

Half priced lunch at BALUCCI'S are a good value and the food has always been good...I often go to the 90th and Second Ave. one.

For Buffet lunch BRICK LANE CURRY HOUSE is nice ($9.95)...go hungry.

We also frequent INDIAN TAJ (also $9.95 for all-you-can eat lunch) on Bleeker between McDougald and Thompson (or Sullivan.)
