We had an excellent meal at Harini http://www.harinirestaurant.com/home in Mercer Mall on Rt. 1 next to Olive Garden. This casual BYOB compares well with other Indian in the area: Passage to India in Lawrence Shopping Center, Vasanta Bhavan on Quakerbridge Rd and Palace of Asia in Lawrence Square Village off Quakerbridge. (Of those 3 we probably prefer P to I)
We started with Paneer pakora and idly, both fine, and vada (lentil donuts) which were just cooked and very very good. Masala dosa and Mysore dosa were better than Vasanta Bhavan's (and we like theirs too!). Spinach dal was very tasty, and the Bendi masala (okra with onions, carrots, other vegetables, and spices) was the best Indian okra I've had. We picked about 5 desserts from a huge case. All excellent with various flavors and textures. We stuck with vegetarian entrees but will try some of their many chicken and lamb dishes next time. Highly recommended.
