Very good meal at Dhaba - Curry Hill

Had a very good meal at Dhaba several months ago but hadn't been back...until last weekend, and had another excellent meal.

The menu is large, a mix between Indian standbys and more unusual dishes. I took the more unusual route, and had terrific appetizers of spiced cashews and fried spinach leaves.
For my main dish, I had an excellent dish of ground lamb mixed with bits of egg white, mint and peas. I''ve had keema dishes before, but never encountered a dish like this.

But Dhaba does the typical Indian dishes well, too. My wife ordered saag paneer and the spinach tasted fresh. A five-lentil dal was delicious as well. And every dish, typical or not, was assertively spiced, but not one-note spicy.

I have to think Dhaba is one of the better Indian places in Curry Hill, and at its price point -- pretty large entrees between $10 and $25 -- one of the better Indian places in Manhattan, no?
