102 Lexington Ave. New York, NY 10016 | Gramercy Park | 212-213-9615

Location Description:

This unassuming spot offers soulful, traditional Gujarati specialties. Go for a thali, or check out the Gujarati snacks that can be found only at a handful of other New York restaurants. Two popular chickpea-based treats--dhokla and khandvi--are done well, the first a fluffy steamed cake made from fermented chickpea flour and topped with mustard seeds and green chiles, the second a pasta-like treat, the delicate yellow noodles rolled into spirals. The front room of the restaurant is occupied by a small sweets shop, stocked with homemade mithai, or Indian confections, some of the best you can get in New York.
