King of Prussia Indian- a question and a find.

First with the find-

The little gas station/convenience store on the north side of 202 in K of P in the strip between Allandale Road and the Valley Forge shopping center ... same line of stores as the Red Lobster and the Hooters are in (both distasteful but mentioned for easily spotted landmark purposes only) has put in a kitchen and started cooking Indian food, as well as maintaining a pretty comprehensive stock of indian ingredients, including a full selection of spices and dal, and some Indian produce. I got a vegetarian lunch from them for $5... good basmati, mutter paneer (peas and chunks of indian cheese in a spicy sauce), and a dal (lentil soup/rice condiment)... everything was quite yummy. I noticed that they do dosas as well, which are next on my list of stuff to try to gague their skill at good Indian food. So... if you're in the NW burbs and are looking for Indian ingredients (or a tasty lunch) this is your place. Note that it is only approachable from 202 ?eastbound? (with back to KofP mall, facing Norristown), so if your're coming from the Norristown direction, note the Red Lobster/Hooters, note the little gas station right before the overpass... cross the overpass... turn around in the Mall parking lots at Allandale Rd, get back on 202 going the other way, cross the overpass, and you're there.

Now for the question-- Has anybody tried Desi Village, the Indian spot at the corner of North Gulph and 202? I recall seeing that they have a $11ish lunch, which strikes me as a bit pricy for lunch in that burb... any opinions?
