I used to live across the street from this jem of a Indian place in Squirrel Hill. They also have a cart
that opens for lunch in Oakland. This is by no means "fancy" food but it's very satisfying and affordable! There are always several vegetarian options that are served with a piece a naan for $5! An entire container! The flavors are authentic and balanced. I love when I can eat out for cheaper than what it costs to make it at home. That's truly the case with Srees - can't beat cost! Don't expect to find a menu or to order to taste. You eat what माँ serves! Which, on any given day totals about 4 dishes - typically a dahl, a potato dish, a chickpea dish and a spinach dish. You can choose any combination of the vegetarian offerings.
They unfortunately package their meals in stryofoam containers but, if I remember correctly, you can bring your own container to the store and they will fill it for you instead.Pros: Affordable, Small and Local, Large Portions
Cons: Not Super Healthy, Closes for a Month in the Winter
