MICHELIN Guide 2017
75-18 37th Ave., Jackson Heights 11372
From $13 to $24


Excellent and affordable Southern Indian food arrives via this humble little gem in Jackson Heights. Guests are greeted by a long and simply decorated room laced with a few hand-woven textiles from India; and Samudra's owner (a personable presence when he's in-house) certainly adds to the cozy ambience by smiling and greeting guests upon entry. Of course, the real star of the show here is the vegetarian menu, which features 16 different kinds of dosas, including a perfectly crispy Mysore masala version stuffed with turmeric-tinged mashed potato. South Indian fermented dough specialties, like an idli-vada combo, arrive on a silver tray with sides of tangy tomato- and coconut-chutney-and is just another sample of the delicacies on offer here.
