Seeking 'Real Mumbai' in West Village Indian Restaurants

This is great. Since living in Mumbai for 3 months my husband and I have been trying to find places that come somewhat close to the amazing street food there. So far we have been disappointed with most, except in Iselin, New Jersey. I've been to Thelewala but can't wait to try the rest.

Lunch for One: Penne with Spicy Cauliflower at Otto

I just had this dish last week and I found it way too spicy--I couldn't eat more than a small portion, and I am not spicy-sensitive. Looks like you got the mild batch and I got the spicy one!

No. 7 Sub: Mad Scientist Sandwiches at the Ace Hotel

I went with two friends and we shared three sandwiches: The General Tso's Tofu, Broccoli, and Eggplant Parm.
We loved the General Tso and the Broccoli, but were all disappointed in the Eggplant. While the idea of bbq chips was intriguing, they got soggy pretty fast and didn't add much flavor. Even with the jalapenos we found it very bland and mushy.
