Vasantha Bhavan, Hicksville, NY.

It belongs to the chain of restaurants in Chennai. The cuisine is South-Indian. It's got nice ambience compared to House of Dosas. The latter looks more of a fast food joint.

I found some dishes good and some bad. The sambhar tasted good. But all the chutneys they served tasted really funny. Correct, they did taste funny. They were more like Tabasco hot sauce and no way near what you would get to taste their hotels in Chennai. Bhagara bath was the highlight.

The food is mediocre, and at the same time expensive. Given a choice I would go to House of Dosas.

Masala Wok, Hicksville, NY.

They serve Chinese, Indian and Thai. I was first taken there with a promise of mouth-watering Indian-Chinese food. And that was my last visit. A small cramped-up place with good ambience and really bad food.Though I didnt want to judge by tasting just a couple of dishes, I didnt wanna take the risk again. Guess that sums it all.

Royal Tangra Masala, Long Island, NY.

Located at 2207 Hillside Ave in New Hyde Park, NY, this Indian-Chinese restaurant is slowly getting to become one of my favorites. Hybrid cuisines always have something exciting to offer and Indian-Chinese is my top pick of them. A lot btter than Masala Wok, the food is spicy and genuinely Indian-Chinese in taste. I start salivating the moment I think of their chicken hot & sour soup and Manchurian dishes.

The place is inexpensive and simply irrestible!!
