5 star punjabi...

i just paid another visit to 5 star, last night...i know it's gotten some mixed reviews here on chowhound recently, but i have to say that i love having this place around and so close to home...

i do, however, understand why some people might not like it...the few times that i strayed from my usual order, i was less than impressed...the saag paneer wasn't my style...keema masala was all right but nothing special...i've learned not to stray anymore as i am completely addicted to that butter chicken -- remarkably good and consistently so...

with the chicken i always order some vegetable samosas (always good and usually great if they are properly fried to avoid greasiness)...and recently, i've discovered their rice pudding -- absolutely delicious stuff...i look forward to trying their ice cream come summer...

appetizer, entree, dessert, rice and naan for two...13 bucks...can't beat that...oh...but you gotta get there early...they close up at 4:30am :)

it's gonna be hard to pry me away from my chicken makhni, but if anyone knows of any other can't miss offerings, i'd at least consider it...
