Best lunch value:  Great Lunch for Veg or Non-Veg.  We tried this restaurant last week, expecting only pick up.  The online menu confuses us (no mention of this great lunch deal for $10-lunch box Thali) so we mention this to the owner.  The food was great just the right spice blend, basmati rice, and perfect Naan bread   Today we received this email with the special below.  Recommend without reservation.
