Good dosa in Manhattan?

moss | Oct 29, 2002 11:03 AM

Where can I find good South Indian food in Manhattan? I'm looking for a good sada dosa or mysore masala dosa that's not glistening in grease.

The places I've tried, all on Curry Hill, have been disappointing. I've been to:

Madras Mahal - mediocre,
Pongal - the worst, inedibly greasy,
Dosa Hut - nothing special

I haven't tried the dosa cart, but I'm looking for a place to sit and eat. I haven't been to Dimple or Mavalli Palace yet. Is one of them significantly better than the ones I've tried? (I wouldn't mind some good chaat while we're at it-- a place like Vic's in Berkeley.)

Where can I go in Manhattan? If there's a great place in Queens or New Jersey, feel free to share as well.
