I went to The Malabari Festival at a Toronto restaurant last night. They had an amazing range of Keralan food that you don't usually see in restaurants here. Excellent rice hoppers, fish molee, payasam, crab curry, avial (with drumsticks!) and lots more.

North London:
There is a great little place called Meera's in Finchley Central High Street. They do a fantastic lunchtime thali for £2.99 as well as a good range of dosas etc. The only problem is they only have seating for 5 people! But if ever you're passing....
On the opposite side of the High Street is Rani's - more upmarket but still Indian pure veg. Buffet is a bit pricey at £15ish but good and fresh.
My other current favourite is Chennai Spice in Edmonton - lunchtime buffet is £4.99 - veg and non-veg - they also do dosas, idli etc. It's right by my workplace - guess where I have my lunch most days....

i love indian food and would happily eat it several times a week. i cook it a few times a week but have never managed to replicate a decent restaurant meal.
the closest indian restaurant to my house is 'Goa indian restaurant' which is in Brno the 2nd largest city in Czech republic. this restaurant is a 140km or 80 mile round trip so we only manage once a month if we are lucky.
it is staffed and cheffed by Nepali,s. the food tastes a little different from most indian restaurants i,ve been to but we really like it.
does a great lunch special as well of soup, curry, nan and rice for about the equivalent of 4 us dollars.

Can Recommend Cuzini at Crawley In the UK. Quite close to Gatwick Airport.
I was staying at a hotel at the airport's South terminal last year and they delivered the food there.

Very tasty and spicy Sri lankan/ South Indian food. Tried the string hoppers and the chicken curry. It was really nice. I did not like the Sri lankan style of Biriyani though. I did not try the Dosa as its better to eat them straight off the tava. The Parathas and lamb curry were also nice.

There is a Biryani of this style as well??

Ask for Hyderabadi Biryani, if you get one there. Its the REAL biryani.

We have to make our own Indian cuisine here, usually in the colder months.
However there is a restaurant near the main train station in Rome, in a 'Little India' area (towards the produce market) which serves a very good lunch and is very popular.
It's called 'Himalaya's Kashmir'.

... and then there was/is ...

Angus Denoon.
He used to sell Jhal Muri – the Kolkata street food – from a supermarket trolley.
But he's upped his game since then.
He now sells from a van which he dresses up (depending on his mood) as a temple, a brothel or a harem.

treats from the streets

Where is the best street food in the world?

Where is the best street food you’ve had in this country? [UK]
London’s Goldborne Road

Favourite street food memory?
Eating a kalti roll as the sun starts to slip around the Barra Bazaar – the old quarter of Kolkata – is hard to beat. But the lassis of Varanasi are holy creations that take you to a softer, kinder place.

Are you mates with all the other traders?
I’m only mates with the good-looking ones.

the guy kinda reminds me of billyshakes.

A new place opened up right around the corner from my apartment - I am very happy since we have not had good North Indian food around here(Flushing, Queens NY) in a while and after a long day I don't feel like stopping in Jackson Heights. It's called Biryani Pointe and it's on Kissena Boulevard near Beech Ave. So far I have tried their samosa chat and chole puri - their lamb biryani is also delicious. The chole, to my palate, is almost dhaba quality(but keep in mind it has been almost 2 years since I ate at a dhaba) They have perhaps the best mango lassi I have had outside of India and sweet/salted lassi are also available(maybe the first time I have seen this at an Indian place in the US). Prices are very reasonable too plus they deliver so I think I will be eating here very often.
Q: Ke garne?

A: Dal bhat khanne, maaya garne, sutne!

The great Indian food where you live thread

Fahim's in Newtown, Sydney is actually Pakistani but serves good quality Nth Indian food and the prices are low. Many Indian taxi drivers go there and their tandoori chicken and nan are nearly as good as what you will find in India.

There are also many genuine Indian restaurants in Harris Park in the Sydney suburbs.

Aki's in Central Sydney is good for upmarket tasty Indian food, with an innovative menu

There's some excellent South Indian food here

I took a friend who's never been to India there for his first Masala Dosa.

I can confirm the awesomeness of that restaurant.

Tandoori chicken? This is where I get mine. It is not exactly salubrious, but Rs.155 for a half chicken with a plain naan is pretty good value and it tastes quite good enough ...
