Great place for Indian/Pakistani Take Out - Green Leaf Super Market

mstinawu | Mar 26, 200711:39 AM     4

This past weekend my boyfriend and I were on our way to California Fish Grill in Gardena for lunch, but we took a wrong turn and had to make a u-turn at Crenshaw in Torrance. About to make a u-turn, I spotted a simple sign saying "lunch specials" which included a short list of basic Pakistani/India dishes.. Chicken Tikka Masala, Beef Kebobs, etc. It looked like a small market touting halal meat and fresh produce and also making cooked to order dishes for take out. We turned in to take a peek at the menu and ended up having lunch there--there are 4 or 5 small tables in there next to the grocies in the market. It really felt like we were eating in someone's kitchen.

My boyfriend ordered the Chicken Tikka Masala and I got the Lamb Karahi. We shared two orders of plain nann and one order of rice. Everything we ordered there was delicious--even the rice! It took awhile to get our food since it looked like everything is cooked to order. You can see the cook in the back preparing your food as you wait. The sauces were good and the meats were all incredibly fresh and tender (the most important thing to me). My only gripe is that the chicken was quite on the greasy side and that they could've upped the spicy factor some more. Though next time I try that place out, I will probably ask if they can make it "spicier." Anyways, highly reccomeded! I didn't try their kebobs, but I image they're also good if the quality of the meat we had was indicative of the other dishes they offer. Oh yea, great bang for your buck too. Everything we ordered and we well had left overs for dinner for less than $15.
