Capital of one of the five largest states in India, Hyderabad is something of a melting pot. Its streets contain both ancient temples and modern sky scrapers, while its cuisine combines Turkish, Arabic, and Indian flavors. The chefs at Deccan Spice attempt the same feat at their new Worth Street location, which invites guests to step inside for a taste of Hyderabad's unique culture.

The cooks in the newly-opened location at 214 Worth Street in Iselin as well as the established Jersey City location specialize in some of the city of Hyderabad's most celebrated dishes. They whip up a wide variety of dishes, including sizzling liver fry and Bheja fry, Gongura mutton, goat paya, and Hyderabadi-style dum biryanis such as natu kodi biryani, which are enriched with the herbs and spices of Hyderabad's local Telugu and Marathwada cuisines. They invite every visitor to bring their own favorite beverage, and don't charge a corkage fee for opening a bottle or dislodging a popped cork from a friend's nose.

Green Chilli's amiable staff maintains a friendly vibe as they circulate the room with steaming hot Indian specialties. Naan and roti flatbreads scoop up mouthfuls of rice from artistically arranged biryani plates and the rich sauces of goat and seafood curries. In addition to sweet desserts and the blueprints of the Taj Mahal, Green Chilli's menu includes more than a dozen vegetarian dishes, which eschew meat in favor of flavorful ingredients such as lentils and cottage cheese.

At The Original Primo Pizza & Grill, chefs whirl handmade dough and whole, peeled tomatoes into a variety of thin-crust pizzas. While the menu includes classic standbys such as the hawaiian pizza, customers can also create their own perfect pies from toppings such as garlic, mushrooms, pepperoni, and sausage. What really shines through, however, is the restaurant’s large selection of specialty pies: buffalo-chicken pizza is topped with chicken and zesty buffalo sauce; Nutella pizza with brown and powdered sugar; and the American-style pizza gets topped with steak, peppers, onions, american cheese, and a pervasive dislike of the metric system.

While pizza dominates the menu, diners can also explore traditional Italian entrees, including dinner specialties such as chicken scampi, veal milanese, and spaghetti with clam sauce.
