My friend is the chef and part owner of the Prince st. location (for what it's worth).

I ate there last night, and as usual, I loved it. I haven't seen it discussed here, and I am wondering if it is because people dont know about it, dont like it, find it too expensive, etc. My personal favorite is the utapa with chicken, onions, olives, goat cheese, arugula and avacado. My friend had a dosa (sp?) with a bunch of other tasty stuff in it.

The fillings are not traditional, although they do mke a delicious potato masala which they put in most of the dosas and utapas, so that might turn off some people. However, the dosa batter and technique is traditional. The soups and sandwiches are also delicious. The chef, Patty Gentry, who I have worked with before, makes some of the most delicious, inventive soups I have ever tasted. A cold, beet and spinach soup with cucumbers and mustard seeds sticks out in my mind.

They also have homemade chai (which I love), and based on an earlier thread, I would be interested if anybody has an opinion about the "authenticity" of their chai.
