Since opening in late 2018, this Indian restaurant has been a favorite of industry folks and locals alike. This creative take on Indian fare is operated by owner Roni Mazumdarin and executive chef Chintan Pandya—the fantastic duo also behind spots like Dhamaka and the recently opened Semma. Chef Pandaya’s unpretentious approach to cooking makes this spot with homestyle energy a must-try.
Special offering: Dinner at $39, check official NYC Restaurant Week listing or website for updates.

An unpretentious romp into the rustic joys of Indian food, Adda Indian Canteen is an earlier brainchild of Chintan Pandya and Roni Mazumdar, who have since launched a coterie of celebrated Indian restaurants in the last several years (including Dhamaka on this list and the soon-to-open Rowdy Rooster and Kebabwala). Keeping customer affordability at the forefront, a no-frills location was chosen for this hangout-friendly spot in LIC (among its closest neighbors is a 7-Eleven). In addition to the much lauded Lucknow dum biryani and paneer khurchan, with its excellent house-made paneer, Adda’s menu includes kale pakora with chaat masala and chutneys; junglee maas, a red chili spiced goat curry; the cumin-inflected king prawn dish jhinga kali mirch; and chili cheese toast topped with Amul cheese (a favorite pantry staple in many an Indian home), and a throwback to Pandya’s own Mumbai childhood.
