I think Dhaba is relatively new in Curry Hill. Same owners as Chola. I had the buffet lunch. Not bad for a buffet. Had a decent selection of N. Indian food. I loved the okra even though it was lukewarm. They achieved a really great wok hai (I guess I should call it a karhai hai) in the dish. I actually went back for seconds. The chili chicken and chicken tikka masala were decent for a buffet. Wasn't too crazy about the lamb curry as they used the leg meat and it was pretty dry. But the sauce was good. There also had a slightly chunky dal, basmati rice with peas, and mustard greens that were decent. They had this neat dish I've never had it before -- it was essentially small red potatoes stuffed with masala inside in a sauce. Dessert was carrot halva (which I'm not the largest fan of). But their rendition wasn't too bad.
The best thing about Dhaba were the fresh food they gave you tableside. I received some freshly made naan, chapati, and yogurt marinated chicken drumsticks.
So if you're in the mood for meat in Curry Hill where you've got a lot of vegetarian Indian restaurants, Dhaba is a pretty decent choice. And the price is really good for what you get -- $9.95 from Mon-Sat and $12.95 on Sundays.
