Except for Grand Sichuan, I rarely eat near home (N. Chelsea). On a blind visit to Maharani (no menu outside -- isn't that illegal?) surprised to have very good Masala Dosa w/homemade coconut chutney, also Dal Maharani, great flavors. Vegetable Korma (husband's idea) was just mediocre. Nice but spacey service. It's one of those veg/Kosher places that proliferate in East 20's. But IN THIS AREA I think it is quite a find. Good for MSGarden visits, FIT, etc.
