Time Out says

This petite, cafeteria-style spot wins top honors in the odd bedfellows department: Beneath the sneeze guard, trays of Indian curries mingle with comfort classics of the American South. (The latter items, along with the name, are holdovers from the restaurant’s previous incarnation as a straightforward Southern spot; when ownership changed hands in the early 90s, some things remained the same.) To our tastes, the Indian dishes—like chana masala and butter chicken—lack complexity. But the cornbread muffins are moist and buttery, and the fried chicken batter has a nice crunch and a tasty black pepper kick. It may not be fare fit for a Mughal emperor, but with generous combo dinners going for five or ten bucks a pop, it’s certainly sufficient to satisfy hungry students. N.B. There are just three booths here, so it’s best to plan to take your meal to go.
