Best Cheap Indian Food In NYC

Curry Hut isn't spectacular-looking in the slightest. The eat-in or take-out restaurant on Ninth Avenue between 39th and 40th streets is small and not that remarkable, with nothing more than counter seating and not much in the way of décor.

The menu isn't terribly exotic or high-flying. Just your basic curries, samosas, tikka masalas, coconut shrimp, and so on.

But it's amazing!

The food is just so damned good -- and fresh, clean, and affordable, too.

For $7.99, for example, you get a tandoori chicken platter, complete with salad, vegetable, soup, rice, and naan bread.

It's all really yummy, filling, and just spicy enough, and so is everything else I've tried there.

Just the other day, I spotted an interesting-looking dish in the display, so I ordered it in a moment of brazen recklessness.

It was chili chicken, which came in the same platter configuration for the very same price ($7.99).

And it was a taste sensation.

Plus, the service is efficient and nice, which is crucial. (No matter how delish the food, I won't patronize a place run by bullies or creeps.)

So go to Curry in a hurry.

I didn't lie about that Korean food court, did I?

I checked the menu online and they have a lot of vegetarian stuff, so I'll definitely be going there.

There's a cheaper place on Houston, across from Katz Deli--Punjabi Express (I think). You can get a whole plate for around 3 bucks. It's where all the cabbies eat

"I won't patronize a place run by bullies or creeps" - reminds me the last time I treated a few friends to one of the better-looking Indian joints in the East Village. Most expensive item was the bottle of red but we were celebrating. What do you know, the waiter held on to it and kept filling our glasses to the brim ... to make sure we'd be out of wine fast enough so we could order more. Needless to say, none of us and our friends ever returned to that stretch of restos - a good thing too, as we were forced to discover some of the better South Asian places in Brooklyn. Glad there's finally a decent one back in the city....

Right. But is it edible?
