Krupa has a number of various lunch specials for $9.95. I enjoy their curry dishes with sides of jasmine rice and a small salad. Hard to beat this meal. Staff is always friendly. Hint, easier to park in back and use the rear entrance.

We discovered this restaurant quite by accident, but have visited twice in the past week. Great Food - love the Pineapple Curry dish. The only thing to remember is that they do not sell alcohol there, but you can BYOB.
