Dhaka---Indian on Atlantic

Had delivery from them recently and thought I'd share my experience. The meat samosas: very good texture, very nicely ungreasy. But rather flavorless. They required major dipping and amending with the assorted condiments but at least they were nicely crisp. Chicken vindaloo. VERY good! I was surprised with this. Many flavors, well blended, pretty spicy hot (I didn't specify--I like spicy but not stupid hot and I didn't want to take a chance of ruining the dish) but not overbearing and remarkably ungreasy--I have sadly come to expect and accept "swimming in oil" to some degree from places like Raga but this was quite clean. I was very impressed with their touch with this curry. It was delicious.
Unfortunately I also ordered a paratha which came as a sodden mass of heavy dense dough saturated with oil. Simply not edible. Ordinarily I would say that a kitchen's touch with bread should be a barometer of their over all finesse but clearly this just isn't the case here. In all, this order presented a confused bag of impressions. I'll have to order carefully in the future but unless it was a fluke, that curry was the best I've had in a while.

Anyone else have similar experiences/impressions?
