"Mughal Dinner"

I know all you people West of 31st street in Astoria are wondering about "Mughal Dinner" -- the new Indian on Broadway, near Crescent.

Now this is clearly not an exceptional place -- but here are my inital thoughts after take-out: Good for the hood! Better than other options, including Ghandi -- and that place near 36th Ave and 33rd Street that I hear people say good things about (but I found dreadful)

Samosas were not greasy, were spiced well -- and had a wider variety of vegetables than the usual (corn, etc).

Chicken Tikka Masala also actually good, fresh tasting. Though the spicing wasn't perfect -- the chicken was very fresh (all white-meat but not dry, well cooked...nothing gnarly at all). The Mattar Ponir was also pretty flavorful...but I wasn't seeing any cheese. Maybe it was broken up, not cubed like it usually is, though.

The nan was ridiculous. Like a store-bought pita they threw in oven for a few minutes.

Anyway, worth a try to delivery/take-out. I'm so sick of everything else in the hood -- so I'll order again fer sure.

Reasonably priced...everything 7-9bux.
