On a mission to eat like a king on a plebeian budget? Give this casual Indian spot in Midtown East a shot. The lunch buffet, priced at under $15, is a neighborhood steal. Come early and come often to tuck into traditional favorites like saag aloo, daal makhni, bhuni gobi matter and rich, creamy butter chicken. The a la carte menu is impressively vast, with dosas and tandoori fare alongside goat curry with dry red chilies, cumin-scented jeera ghee rice, and spicy phall, an Anglo-Indian dish cooked with The modest interiors are tastefully decorated, and the service is consistently professional and friendly.
Best for Indian Because: There is no shortage of Indian lunch buffets in Manhattan, but Chola takes the cake for variety, service and stellar cuisine.
