Recs for upcoming weekend please!!!

Hi all,

I am coming this weekend to NYC from Canada and hoping to have a few recs. I am staying in Upper Midtown but will have a car to get around if I need to venture into the boroughs or NJ.

1. I want a really good thai restaurant that has fantastic green and panang curries, as well as other standard fare. Price range 15-20$ per person
2. Indian restaurant either in Manhattan or Little India in NJ (Iselin, Oak Tree Road or other) that has phenomenal butter chicken and/or good south indian food. Do these chains exist near NYC - Saravana Bhavan, Udupi Palace and Woodlands? Which is strongly recommended?
3. I would love to browse in large ethnic markets, specifically:
a. japanese grocery that carry drinks like Pocari, milk tea and Aquarius drinks
b. indian grocery store
c. mexican grocery store to get instant Cafe con leche (Nescafe)
4. Lastly, I will drop by Trader Joe's in Union Square. Is there a time when it is less busy on Sunday? I don't want to wait in line for 1 hour and have to shop in a people jungle.

Thanks in advance and look forward to great chowing in the Big Apple!
