Takeout from Lahore Karahi

Got takeout tonight from Lahore Karahi, my first time inside the place (or trying the food). We got there at a busy time, ordered and waited for our food. It seems like the owner takes a lot of pride in his food, and I thought everything we had was excellent. We had one chicken tikka masala - I liked their version, which was more gingery than many versions. There were some other unique flavors too that I couldn't identify. Wasn't bright orange like this dish can sometimes be. Very good. The sag paneer was also great. I think the highlight for me though was the chicken biryani. Usually I think this dish is somewhat boring, but from Lahore Karahi it isn't! It was very spicy (whole pieces of chili) and flavorful...chicken pieces were boneless and very tender. We asked everything to be medium spicy, and the heat (especially biryani and tikka masala) was impressive. We also had naan (nice, yeasty flavor) and rice (with spices and chilis). Total bill (before tip) was 29 dollars! Plenty of food for 3. Also included was a container of payasam (sp?) which made for a delicious dessert. I will definitely be back!
