I have a South Indian friend visiting from a hick town in Arizona who wants a fix of South Indian food she doesn't have to cook for herself. Last time she was here three years ago, we went to Dasaprakash and she liked it, so she suggests going there again when next we go shopping in San Jose.
However, I haven't heard much about Dasaprakash in awhile, which makes me nervous. Especially, since a lot of the Indian coworkers have not heard of the place. One Indian coworker suggested Saravana instead, although he did say that his wife was offended by the rude service.
To give you some background info, she liked Udupi Palace as reasonably authentic, hated Dosa with a passion as being pseudo Indian, and described Vik's as "Northerners making a valiant attempt at South Indian food, not entirely successful."
Since we may have time for only one South Indian meal, I want it to be good. Does anyone here have an opinion?
