Samudra

Samudra serves vegetarian Indian food in Jackson Heights.
Samudra is a “pure vegetarian restaurant.”

Sandwiched between a Dunkin’ Donuts and an H&R Block, Samudra is easy to overlook. However, this palace of vegetarian Indian food should not be missed. The “pure vegetarian” experience that will ensue will certainly contain mountains of cheese, vegetables, potatoes, and pillowy naan.

When visiting the eatery, it is vital that one orders a dosa. These thin, South-Asian crepes can be filled with potato masala or enjoyed plain with coconut chutney and sambar, a lentil-based vegetable stew. At Samudra, it is not hard to enjoy aloo gobi and paneer uthappam, a South Indian pancake with cottage cheese and mild spices. The welcoming staff and atmosphere filled with Indian music and notes of curry powder make the restaurant a popular gathering spot for families and friends.
