Ganesh Temple Canteen

$$$$(718) 460-8484
Hours:WEDNESDAY8:30AM to 9:00PM

A South Indian cafeteria below a Hindu Temple in Flushing, Temple Canteen is well known among the Indian community and the most serious of Indian food enthusiasts. Originally the food here was just made as an offering to the gods, but now it’s an offering to you, too. Everything on the menu is vegetarian, and you won’t find better dosas in town. On your way out, make sure to look into the gift shop.
