To our rather biased palate, Indian restaurants offer far yummier food than any other cuisine.
While Indian restaurants are not chock-a-block in New York like those ubiquitous pizzerias, bagel joints or the Chinese places, still you can't miss them.

Sporting names such as Adyar Ananda Bhavan, Bengal Tiger, Bombay Palace, Curry in a Hurry, Saravanaa Bhavan, Saffron, Indus Valley, Minar, Karahi and Nanking, Indian restaurants are scattered across Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn.
Most Indian restaurants in New York offer North Indian fare with the usual naan breads and tandoori delicacies, but lately there has been a profusion of Indian-Chinese places. To name just a few , Nanking, Tangra Masala and Chinese Mirch.
There are also a few South Indian joints in Queens like the popular cafeteria at the Ganesh Temple on Bowne Street in Flushing.

Vegetarians need not despair. There are several veggie places spread out across the area including in Jackson Heights and Long Island
">Long Island where the meat-haters and the PETA-members can enjoy a hearty meal.
Several Indian restaurants in NYC are likely not even run by Indians but most likely by Bangladeshis, Nepalis and Pakistanis. Never mind. Just dig into any of the spicy curries and experience Nirvana.
