Erick South specializes in dishes from southern India, and serves up some of our favorite budget curries in Tokyo. Curries and side dishes are all distinctively flavored, and the quality is a few cuts above even the the more expensive Indian shops around town. The menu offers a wide variety of multi-dish set menus, ranging in price from Y1080-1650.

Most set menus here come with a few small curry dishes of your choice, plus crispy papadum, basmati rice and yellow rice, some tangy lemon rasam (a spicy south Indian tomato soup), peppery sambar (a lentil-based stew), medu vada (a crisp donut made from lentils), and unsweetened yogurt. Excellent chutney-like urugai pickles are served on the side.

Located in the underground shopping complex stretching east from Tokyo station, this branch of Erick South has mostly counter seating, although there are a couple of small tables in the very back. Bouncy Bollywood-style music plays in the background.
