Cardamomm and Pongal - Curry Hill

thegforce | Mar 3, 2004 10:29 AM

Went there 2 weeks ago as it had good reviews and I loved Banjara Grill in E. Village - chef comes from there I hear. It was a very silly, frantic atmosphere. The manager/owner? was in a tizzy which set the tone for the room. He was overwhelmed by the full room and slow staff. Menu looked nice though. Anyone been?

I ended up going next door to Pongal for a stupid vegetarian meal. Not that all vegetarian meals are stupid. This one was. The only thing good about the place is the dosa - crazy curly wafer thin crepes. Pretty cool. But everything else was starchy, leaden, and lacked fire.

I left with a big doughy carb face - think preggers Catherine Zeta Jones (AKA Cathy Jones) at the Oscar's last year.
