Hi Mary! There is a neighborhood in Manhattan, Murray Hill, that has so many Indian spots that it’s nicknamed “Curry Hill.” There’s a range of different foods there. I’ve had a nicer meal at a sit-down restaurant, but I’ve also had things to grab and go at other spots.

If you’re looking to explore more of New York, then I would also recommend Jackson Heights in Queens. That neighborhood has a little bit of everything, but plenty of good Indian food!

Good luck, and enjoy eating through New York!

Thank you!
Sorry I just saw this. In Manhattan, go to Little India - Lexington Ave and 28th St. In Queens, go to Jackson Heights - Take R or F train to Jackson Hts/Roosevelt Ave station. Theret’s a big Indian neighborhood. Sorry for the late response.

Thanks, Ruby. We ended up at Bombay Bread Bar on Spring St. Excellent food. We’ll go back.
New York has a huge selection of Indian restaurants at all prices. There are no-frills steam table places and grand, expensive restaurants. There is Indian regional food, British style curries, and now more experimental food. FYI: the only place I’ve had parotta bread is at Anjappar on Lexington (the lunch special wasn’t great, however). That’s parotta not paratha. 
You can look up “good, cheap Indian food.” You shouldn’t spend more than $15 for lunch, dinner will probably be within the range of other NY restaurants. 
A stroll through “Curry Hill”, Lexington Ave. in the upper 20’s is fun. A few restaurants have been there for years, others keep changing. Lunch might be a buffet, or cheaper versions of the regular menu. Always check the menus outside. 
6th Street in the East Village used to be a solid block of Indian food. Haven’t been there for a while, but now restaurants are all over the East Village.
 Do some research on line, you will find good Indian food at your price point.

I would also point you towards 1st avenue and 6th street. There are a number of inexpensive but very good Indian restaurants with a unique and fun atmosphere.

Depends on how far youre willing to travel. Never midtown. You can either go to Jackson Heights which is un Queens. Take the 7 train. Or to Upper Westside to a restaurant, Clove. Which is on Amsterdam Ave and around 135th, which you can take the 1 to 137th and walk two blocks over.
