From New York to New Delhi, from Rio to Rajkot, restaurants that serve a variation of foods found in India, and it's diasporic countries are beginning to get noticed. From pretty awful fare in Honolulu to sublime Vij's in Vancouver...

Here is NewYorker's take on one -

Quote:
[Chintan Pandya]......... The places that passed muster were too expensive. The places that were affordable didn’t pass muster. Eventually, he realized that he could solve this problem. In September, he and his partner at Rahi, Roni Mazumdar, opened Adda, a “canteen” that serves the kind of unpretentious, homey food that “Indian people actually eat,” Mazumdar said, as he and Pandya made rounds in the dining room one recent afternoon. To insure quality, they kept the menu small. “We can’t do justice to forty pages,” Mazumdar said. To keep prices down, they chose a low-rent location in Long Island City.

Haven't been to Vij's but from what I've heard it probably the best on the west coast.

Had work out in Redmond Was one day, a co-worker and I found Chinese restaurant which turned out to be an Indian-Chinese joint, Gobi Manchurian and no chai.They were pretty good.

The Indian buffet near work was a sorry excuse. Palak aur panner kahan hai?

Could be ! Or rather, based on those I have been to in the West Coast - Definitely ! Take a ferry to Vancouver, and have a great brunch at Vij's.

Gotta be prepared to stand inline there, long wait lists especially come dinner time.

Bollywood Indian Restaurant (Westlake Village, CA) for samosas (non veg).
Royal Delhi (Canoga) only decent Indian buffet ever encountered.
Bollywood Indian Kitchen (Simi Valley) best channa patoda anywhere.
Kabana (Berkeley) only if one is South Asian. Go figure, they dump the worst on gringos. Got even in a town where it is difficult to dump trash.
Ajanta (Berkeley) OFF the list due to a bad ownership change. Go to Alice Waters instead.
House of Curries (Berkeley) no competition with the old Ajanta but spent many an evening on the patio with great ambiance. Nearby is a health hazardous place, you have been warned.
Viks (Berkeley) for chatt quite famous, in a tough area.
For true Kashmiri the closest is in Gurgaon (sob)..

May i recommend Rajjot snacks and sweets to y'all. Located in Sunnyvale - the heart of little India in SF Bay, this hole in the wall justifies the term hole in the wall. You'll certainly want to do a takeaway as water from the dispenser spills on the floor making the already insufficient seating even more so. They'd get an OSHA certificate if they knew how to spell. However, two veg mains for $7.99, stuffed alu parathas the size of a frisbee $2.5 and they do not scrimp on the butter - truly punjabi. I hear there's a branch in San Jose now as well.
