I lived in Tamil Nadu for a few months some years ago (culinarily speaking, the best months of my life.) I have never found a good Tamil restaurant outside India, though Woodlands, in London, comes close. Surely there must be one somewhere in Queens?
Also, if anybody could help point me to a good veggie Indian in the Flushing area, I'd be very grateful. I like Shamiana (who cares if the food is heated by microwave?!) but it's a bit erratic.
