Canteen-style vegetarian Indian food in Chicago?

By "canteen-style," I meant something akin to a Hindu temple canteen--cheap and good. But I suppose I also meant food that's not overcooked, underspiced, or otherwise tailored for "Americans."

Canteen-style vegetarian Indian food in Chicago?

Is there such a thing? I just moved to Chicago and, upon the advice of a friend, have sampled a few restaurants on Devon Street. Udupi Palace and Arya Bhavan were good, though the food felt a little "dumbed down." Viceroy of Indian was horrible--watery and tasteless (though the friend I ate with, who had enjoyed their food previously, said there was something distinctly off about the meal).
