Naan 'N Curry report

Had a business lunch at Grand Cafe the other day, and on the way back to the office noticed Naan 'n Curry, source of much discussion here a while back. Went back for lunch today. It was definitely less of a mob scene (and a little cleaner) than Shalimar. Lamb curry with okra was good--spoon-tender chunks of lamb on the bone with onions and okra--vegetables were super long-cooked, so couldn't really make out definite okra pieces except for a few. Well-spiced, satisfying, although VERY oily. Chana masala (chickpeas--they were out of daal) was good, spicier than I've had it at Pawkan or Shalimar. Paleek Paneer--OK, nothing special--pretty much standard-issue. The only real disappointment was the naan--doughy, warmish (not fresh-from-the-tandoor hot) and generally blah. It looked good but scored very low on the naan-o-meter.
