Perfect, inexpensive Indian food in Manhattan!!!

Besides the uncomftorable lighting and cramped headquarters, PAKISTAN TEA HOUSE in TriBeca on Church St near City Hall Park is perfection. The staff is overlyfriendly (a good thing) yet optimal in efficiency considering the place can get extremely busy at any particular time.
I've had almost everything there and I would recommend this : You must have the green beans, corn, peas dish....I can't think of the name off the top of my head but it's my absolute fav. Then get some Makhni Chicken (orange colored) it is ALWAYS tender and full of flavor. Usually they let you pick out one more item, so I'll let you decide on that one. Here's the important thing: unbenonced to me when I first came there, I ordered rice instead of fresh, hot crispy Roti Bread...Big MISTAKE! Not saying that their rice is bad, it's just you can't pass up a treat like fresh out of the oven Roti. Order two of them...that's usually enough. Boom - So far, only 6 bucks and you will eat like a king. An Assorted variety of yummy little desserts run at about .75 cents.
Being the college kid that I am, this is heaven after one too many trips to Blimpy's.
