Not all good Indian food in NYC is found on Lexington Ave between 26th street and 34 street. True, there are fantastic Curry Hill spots—but complex curries, superb chaat, and tandoori specialties can be found in dining rooms from Tribeca to Queens.

May we suggest a recently opened East Village restaurant serving spicy curry from Madurai and excellent Keralan moilee (southie fish stew)? Or, an upscale spot downtown where tandoori masters can be seen working the blazing ovens through a window in the stunning dining room? No matter what your budget and style is, one of these Indian restaurants is sure to entice.

Here are our five favorite Indian restaurants in NYC.

    Just go to Papadam at 75th street and First avenue. The chef there has a unique hand; the taste most resembling fine dining in better restaurants in North India. The five listed above are well known NYC establishments and frankly not exciting any longer. Papadam is very affordable too.
