Great dinner at Spicy Mina's

I have glanced at these chow boards for quite a while now and I have seen mixed reviews regarding Spicy Mina's in Woodside.

Well, the other day on was on the way home from JFK and I decided to drag my wife and my in-laws to try the place. My wife and her parents are from Calcutta so I was really interested in getting their opinon.

We started with the Fuska appetizer and we were all very pleased. After that, we ordered chicken Vindaloo, mixed grill tandoori, nan bread, special dal fry and the fish kofta curry. All of us agreed that the food was execllent...we were all very impressed. I especially loved the fish kofta curry. My wife's parents then started speaking to Mina in Bengali and she came out with some special desserts for the table. I don't know exactly what they were, but they tasted great.

Overall, we had a great experience there. I know people say that the place is hit or miss, but on this night, the food was great. If I am in Queens again, I will definatley go back.
