This is a neighborhood spot in Clinton Hill that has some of the best South Indian food in Brooklyn. Come here with that lonely Pratt professor who’s interested in paying you to teach him about the dark web. If you decide to come with a large group instead, there’s plenty of space to eat indoors, plus the outdoor patio has nice views of nearby brownstones. If you like the sound of curry potatoes covered in flaky crust, get the masala dosa. For something spicier, get the rava masala dosa. These dishes are on par with what you’ll find at Indian spots in Manhattan, except you can enjoy them in a space that never feels packed. This means you can probably sit several feet away from other tables and explain your dark web secrets without worrying about someone eavesdropping.
