This strictly vegetarian-and mainly vegan-restaurant in Jersey City's Little India is one of the first to offer a pan-Indian vegetarian menu. South Indian standards like dosas, iddlies, and uthappams are rendered with panache (in particular, check out the massive "family dosa" if you're eating with a group), even though Krishna Cuisine can't compete with the dosa houses down the street for number of choices. The menu also excels at northern Indian pakora: fritters of green chiles, mixed vegetables, or the fresh cheese called paneer that have been coated with chick-pea flour and deep fried. Finally, the Mughal standard vegetable dishes are perhaps the best of the restaurant's offerings, including a few oddments such as shahee paneer and kadhai paneer.
