hey, all. here's my situation. i have a friend who's lived in jackson heights for two years and has not yet tried any indian food. the problem is that she's highly allergic to coconuts and isn't sure how to make sure a dish is coconut-free.
i'd like to take her somewhere to sample the cuisine, but i'm not familiar with jackson heights. can anyone recommend a restaurant in which the employees have a good enough grasp of english that they can help sort out which dishes don't have coconut? otherwise, are there vegetarian dishes that definitely do not have coconut?
thanks so much.
