The stretch of Decatur around Lawrenceville Highway has, in the last few years, become home to a wealth of South Indian restaurants. MADRAS SARAVANA BHAVAN - Madras to its friends - remains the highlight of the pack. Most every table orders a rolled, tire-sized dosai crepe as the meal's centerpiece, but there's much more to explore. Think creamy vegetable dishes, crispy salads, and savory pastries made for dunking. The menu is so rangy and cheap that two can order a gorge fest for under $30 and have enough leftovers for a filling lunch the next day.

It does our samosa-lovin' hearts good to see so many high-quality Indian restaurants serving unusual, regional dishes popping up around town. The best remains the one with the most difficult name to remember: MADRAS SARAVANA BHAVAN. The menu is enormous, so start with safe bets like bhel puri, sort of an Indian Rice Crispies for adults, and the lithe dosa crepes. Pretty soon, you'll be venturing into more obscure territory, like the delicious eggless tomato "omelet" in coconut gravy. Satiate the sweet tooth with carrot halwa or creamy shrikand yogurt with cardamom. "2179 Lawrenceville Highway, Decatur, 404-636-4400. www.madrassaravanabhavan.net" less...

Even stubborn carnivores enthusiastically succumb to the aromatic pleasures of wallet-friendly, South Indian vegetarian newcomer MADRAS SARAVANA BHAVAN housed in a barely remodeled Folks restaurant. Foot-long dosai (savory, stuffed crepes) compete for table space with bhel puri (puffed rice and potatoes in a sweet/savory, crisp/soggy jumble), delicate spinach saag and lemon rice. Try the dreamy shrikhand, cardamom-spiced yogurt cheese with pistachios, for dessert. You don't have to remember how to spell it to love it.

1850 Lawrenceville Highway, Decatur 404-325-1933 This South Indian cafe offers only vegetarian food, but we've never seen a meat eater complain here. Truly one of the remarkable bargains in the city, this large and bustling restaurant serves huge rice-flour crepes (dosai) wrapped around mysterious fillings of ingredients at turns crunchy and soft, sweet and hot, lemony and nutty. Take a group and do "not" fail to order the cauliflower. less...

Touch of India
Ho, ha, we love Indian lunch buffets, don't we? We love stewed lentils, spicy chick peas, spinach with cheese and lamb curry. We love mint sauce. We really love tandoori chicken, onions and rice. All washed down with tea. And not much of a check to pay. Oh, these places get a little more formal at night.more...
