This is a good place for Indian food. They do serve authentic Indian - Punjabi food. We had our dinner here and it was really good.

Wandered into Pongal tonight expecting it to be another typical Indian Restaurant on Lexington Avenue. We were (pleasantly) surprised that it was vegetarian. Everything we ordered was delicious. The service was also very good. We will definitely go back.
