AAA Inspector Notes
The neighborhood of Tompkinsville is a hop, skip and a jump from the Staten Island Ferry terminal and home to the largest concentration of Sri Lankans in the country. This small Tamil eatery specializes in dosa, which is a South Indian crepe, and Uthappam specialties, where the ingredients are mixed right into the batter, similar to a pizza. A staggering abundance of flavors and fresh dishes, like roti plates and a wide variety of fab curries, are available. The décor is modest. Tamil cuisine from Southern India features a complexity of flavors that differs from other regional Southern Indian food, which can at times be extremely robust and even overpowering to a Western palate. The Tamil variant shows some restraint and showcases a depth and subtlety of flavors. Meat dishes, including lamb, mutton, delectable shrimp and a huge choice of chicken curries, are spiced according to the diner's taste. Service is quietly refined and helpful.
