What the owners like to call Gujarati dim sum might more properly be called a bottomless thali, the cooking of the Indian province overwhelming you with labyrinths of flavor and a profusion of perfumes, a 10-course combination platter constantly refilled in all of its components. After 45 minutes, your plate will probably look exactly the way it did before you started eating, save the odd drip of lentil dal. But when the waitress bearing khandvi, tart, fermented-batter crepes smeared thickly with pureed lentils and coiled into slender jelly rolls, comes around again, you will probably beg for another portion no matter how full you may be. The concept of too much khandvi simply does not exist. See full review.
