I haven't hit up any of the mostly veg Indian places in the east 20s in a while and decided that's what I want for my bday dinner. But none of them really stand out to me and I can't decide where to go (it'll be takeout, because I don't feel like dragging the baby, toddler and Manhattan-hating boyfriend). I know I definitely want a dosa! and a good channa dish too probably.
Any recommendations?

I used to love Chennai Gardens but haven't been there for a while. Excellent ambiance, dosas, uttapams and a great channa batura :)

My favorite would be Vatan. It's an all you can eat thali place.

http://www.vatanny.com/

You start with the appetizer thali, and they keep bringing more until you decide you're ready to move on to the entree thali. Same deal with the entrees until you're ready for dessert. Not everything is vegan by default, but if you let them know you're vegan they'll make sure to prepare everything that way.

Dammit, now I reread everything and saw you're looking for takeout.

I really like the dosas at Saravanaa Bhavan. They're probably my second favorite indian place in that area.

http://www.saravanabhavan.com/restauran ... ork&rid=29

They specialize in southern indian, so it's mostly idlis, dosas, and uthappams. Their menupages only has one channa item though, and it's a bread served with chick peas only available on weekends and holidays.

I really like chennai garden too. Giant dosas! Last time we went they sat us at this bigger table/booth by the door that was sort of separate from everything else. That worked out because Ada was able to move around. But yeah, I can see how the whole getting everyone there would not be the most relaxing birthday situation :-)

oh right, used to love Chennai Gardens, forgot about them! Ended up going with Tiffin Wallah and wow it was a great choice, the samosas and rava dosa were sooo good and boyfriend had the best baingan bharta either of us have ever tasted. The channa was just aight though.

not indian, but bamiyan is one of my favorite restaurants in the city. it's afghan and you can sit on oriental rug covered pillows on the floor (or at normal tables if that isn't your thing.) best spinach in the whole world!
