Indian-style Chinese food at Chinese Mirch

I just tried Chinese Mirch on Lexington and 28th Street this weekend, and I found it to be a really interesting experience. I've heard there are a bunch of Indian-style Chinese places in Jackson Heights, but I've never gotten to try one, and this is the first in Manhattan that I know of. The menu is small, and most of the dishes are extremely spicy. Most dishes have the option to be served "saucy" or "dry". We mixed it up and found both styles good, although we preferred the dry overall. I particularly liked the lamb with black bean sauce. The lamb was fried crispy, and went surprisingly well with the black bean sauce. If you haven't tasted Indian Chinese before, you should definitely give this place a try.
