Came upon it by chance; wonderful dosas and idlis. But most importantly the chutney was outstanding--the best I have ever had. The owner/chef is charming

We had a lovely street food lunch here. I've never had street food before as I'm too fussy but this was top notch. Im totally envious of the locals as I'd be eating here several times per week. We had what the vendor recommend for...More

Consistently excellent, reasonably priced. Why it's worth waiting on line, no matter how long! Thiru is a village gem, great food and a nice guy too!

Thiru makes the best vegetarian dosas I've ever had. Also delicious veg drumsticks (soy) with sugar cane "drumstick" which you dip in sweet chili sauce! Best outdoor Village meal from a very decent guy who's been doing this a loooong time and does it well....More

I love street food and this is exceptional. Plus I can enjoy my lunch in the beauty of Washington Sq Park. Fantastic. I live and work in Brooklyn so I'm not a regular but I'm always recognized and don't even need to give my order...More

Came and found this man again on my second visit to NY. Gorgeous food, dairy free vegan. Nice to pick up and sit on a bench or the grass and picnic!

for dosas whenever I'm nearby for many years. Reasonably priced and well worth the wait. Why do you think there is a line when he opens? Is you like spice ask for it! I also like the vegetarian drumsticks with chili sauce!

We visited the park in a rush because we were running late for a Statue of Liberty trip. The owner was lovely and rushed to make our lunch so we made our trip in time! The food was lovely, it's amazing how they make food...More

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
