Excellent Indian Cuisine! Probably the best in Rhode Island! Not so great on a first date as the atmosphere is bland...but certainly not the food!

The food is really amazing and priced much better than other Indian food places around. Their chicken korma is amazing and I order that every time. I'm not Indian, so I can't tell you if it's authentic or not, but it's run by an Indian family and it is spiced a lot better than Kabob and Curry. The flavor is just more full and less watery. This is the best Indian place in Providence, without a doubt.

We thought food was ordinary home cooked meal.I think I can cook better. Because I am from India I know the difference. Paneer tikka masala was nothing but Chana (paneer)curry with Bengali taste. We wouldnt go back there.

Best PAKISTANI food in town although they could cut down on the VEGGIES and make the menu more MEAT oriented. I would recommend their BEEF KABOBS. Their GOAT CURRY is good too cause it reminds me of homemade ALOO GOSHT in Pakistan. I would NOT recommend their KORMA -- it looks weird (Korma never has a white paste) and tastes funny. Their CHICKEN BIRYANI is decent as well although I'd recommend them to cut down on dry fruit in it to make it more AUTHENTIC.

When we moved here from California 7 years ago one of the things I missed was my friend's cooking. Their family is from Chenai (Southern India) and the spicy vegetarian cuisine was fantastic.<br /> <br /> Not just snacks is a very close second to Yamuna's cooking, love the idli with sambar. Their Dosas are fantastic as well. <br /> <br /> Highly reccomended!

I just ordered food from that place and it is awful. My samosas are cold. The entree is over spiced and the rice is stale. I'm never going back again.

Well, lets just say I live in the area - and within a square mile there are at least three indian restaurants. This one has the best food. Some of their dishes are quite spicy - but they are meant to be! So, if you don't like spicy, just let them know and they will take care of you. The atmosphere is not fancy, but it is a great place to hang out with some friends or even take someone on a first date - since it isn't flashy, and they dont constantly have waitstaff bustling by you, it is an intimate atmosphere with amazing food - which will be a great conversation starter, and you will be able to focus on eachother! They do have an outdoor porch dining area which is great for the cool summer and early autumn nights. I had the Boneless Chicken Korma tonight (one of their less spicy dishes, although I usually do love spicy food, I was not in the mood for it this evening), and it was seasoned perfectly, and had great texture. It is BYOB, and there is a liquor store across the street, so pick up a bottle of Merlot and have some Vindaloo, Samosas and Naan tonight! Highly recommended.

Best, most authentic Indian food in RI. The atmosphere is a little uncomfortable, very bright and sort of strange, but who cares? The Thalis are totally great.

I love indian food and I can tell you I eat indian foon twice a week. I have been at brown for 8 years and have pretty much tried all the indi. restaurant. i was a big fun of kabob and curry lunch 6dollar until one day i order a meat samosa to end up with a wrotten meat samosa. I cant find a way to get myself there everytime i remember that incidence so I tried notjust snacks because its close to my house booooy I love their food so much better . tastefooolllllllllllll. I love it ... a bit spicy on their tikka but now i usually them to make it less spicy

The best, most authentic Indian food in Rhode Island. Other area Indian restaurants are much more Americanized.....but Not Just Snacks brings back memories of India. <br /> <br /> The soups are $8 a bowl, but well worth it. They are that good. <br /> <br /> Some of the dishes might be a bit too spicy for the Western palette...but this is authentic Indian food.

Probably the best Indian food in Providence, definitely the most authentic. Not great on atmosphere, but not without charm.

The best, and I mean the BEST Indan food in Providence, and even better than any I ever had in Boston (I'm from there originally.) The Korma is out of this world.
