Indian Food with Parents

Thanks, everybody, for your help with my question a couple of weeks ago about taking my parents out to Indian food. It turns out that after they showed up, they totally changed the parameters on me (this was not terribly shocking given my parents), and decided they wanted to have food delivered instead. So I went with Bengal Express, and all parties were satisfied generally. The Bhengan Bharta was the best dish we had: enough pungent spice to make it tasty, but not obscuring the eggplant taste (this is a key balance, too many restaurants either make stuff too bland or just load enough spice on that it wouldn't matter what your underlying veggie is). The saag paneer and malai kofta were also solid, and my mom liked her mulligatawny soup. All the dishes come with basmati rice and dal, the dal was flavorful, if a little thinner than I'm used to. The only disappointment was the Bhindi Masala, the okra was mushy and flavorless. All in all, though, I'd recommend getting food from there, it's generally tasty and a great deal.
