There's a block of Macdougal just south of the NYU campus that's lined with hole-in-the-wall restaurants with no place to sit. Thelewala is in the middle of the block, offering Indian street food. From sidewalk level, you take several steps up to the cash register....More

During a walk in the area, we craved for a quick snack. We ordered the chicken with fried egg rotti, it was mildly seasoned, and well priced.

Excellent tasting Indian Street Food. Kathi Rolls made with Chicken or vegetarian or egg or Paneer. Also, try their Tawa Chicken with Paratha. On an Average it cost $5-$7 per dish. Very cheap for NYC.

It is just amazing how you could grab genuine desi wraps after you are wasted in west village - this is one of my favorites ... reminds me of of Mumbai and how easy it is to grab street food there..

Thelewala means street side food (in hindi), and ironically those are really tasty. The food was really tasty and it a good place to hang out with friends and family

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.
