Di Fara, Bukhara

Tried both of these recently on forays out Coney Island Avenue. Di Fara was great -- I wouldn't have believed a simple bowl of spaghetti with marinara sauce could be such perfection. And the salad was equally great. My friend got a slice of pizza, which was ok, but the pasta was superior. I plan to go back frequently.

I had very high expectations for Bukhara. The nan was wonderful, as was the dal and the chicken dish I had. But some of the other dishes (mostly vegetarian) were sitting in at least a cup of oil. I'm not usually one to complain about too much oil, but this was over the top. The samosas and other appetizers were cold and somewhat flavorless. I'll give it another try, though, and be more careful in my ordering.
