Among the dozens of cheap Indian eateries in town, this comfy BYO stands tall. An outsize order of gobi Manchurian—a plate of battered and spice-slicked cauliflower—is good enough to make you finish your vegetables. And you’ll use every last piece of naan to sop up the butter chicken’s lush, curry-soaked gravy. As well you should.

Order (serves 2): Gobi Manchurian, $9; butter chicken, $13; garlic naan, $3
