Another great, intimate place to eat spices in New York!
Panna II Indian Restaurant has been recognized and recommended by Time Out NY Magazine. A very unique tiny place! With (yes, it is) foil covered walls, and low-ceiling full of flashing red chile pepper and christmas lights dangling, located in the heart of the East Village.
Despite the small room that fits the 5 of us and our foods, Panna II doesn't failed us to enjoy the birthday dinner experience. It feels like they're celebrating my birthday in this Christmast-decorated restaurant.
The waiter even put on a Happy Birthday song for me that night. So funny.
Panna II also has been made for the location several Hollywood movies such as Coyote Ugly. I would highly recommend Panna II for those of you who just wanna hang out, have some quality time with your BFF.
