Dosa Hutt is an Indian, vegetarian restaurant that serves mostly dosa, which is like a crepe, but Indian. They also have some other types of Indian carbohydrates and even rolled up ice cream now, which I think is originally Thai.

Restaurant Review: Inday

Details: Located at 708 3rd Ave, New York, NY 10017. Official site is

Inday is a fast casual Indian food place like that serves Indian fusion-y food, Chipotle style. It’s like Indikitch.

They have a chicken biriyani that’s about nine dollars that’s okay. I tried the roast chicken bowl which was around twelve dollars I think. It tasted a lot like halal food you could get from a food truck/cart. They also have salmon among other options other than chicken.

Overall, this place was okay, but over priced. I don’t think I’d ever come back because I could just get food from a halal cart instead for half the price and which tastes mostly the same.

Restaurant Review: Basera Indian Bistro

Details: Located at 745 9th Ave, New York, NY 10019. Official site is

Basera Indian Bistro is just another average Indian place in Hell’s Kitchen.

I ordered the chicken korma lunch special, which was just okay. It didn’t come with a side of any kind. I will say the portion of the rice and chicken was large. It cost about fourteen dollars after tax.

Overall, the best takeout Indian place in Hell’s Kitchen that I’ve had is Badshah Modern Indian which is a few blocks north of here. I’d recommend that place over this one, especially since the price is about the same.

Restaurant Review: Badshah Modern Indian

Details: Located at 788 9th Ave, New York, NY 10019. Official site is

Badshah has the distinction of likely being the best chicken tikka masala I’ve ever had. Not by a wide margin, but it is pretty good. I’ve eaten a lot of tikka masala, but this was the most memorable one I’ve had in recent memory.

I think it’s that it’s a thicker sauce. Most tikka masala I’ve had has been watered down more. This was very thick and creamy. The flavor was also stronger. It was just better.

I came by and ordered the chicken tikka masala for lunch. It came with rice, a small salad, and naan bread and costs around twelve dollars after tax.

Overall, everything was pretty good and I can see myself coming back here again. If you want to eat inside, the interior is comfortable. The woman I placed my order with was very nice.

Restaurant Review: Hot n’ Fresh Indian Grill

Details: Located at 200 W 40th St, New York, NY 10018. A claimed Yelp page can be found here:

This is a small Indian restaurant mostly serving kati rolls. It’s like Indian burritos. I ordered a Tikka Masala Kati roll for about five dollars. It wasn’t like the Tikka Masala I was used to which usually has a heavy cream and tomato sauce. This was just bits of grilled chicken with a spicy green sauce over it. It was okay, but spicy. I would not come back.
