I read a favorable Village Voice review about this extremely modest little Indian/Pakistani/Bangladeshi (soory, I don't know which!)joint and decided to make the trek today. Boy, was it worth it! That review could not have been more accurate. The chicken curry is boneless (what a concept!)in a very tasty tomato based sauce that is FRESH. The nice guy behind the counter explained they only serve fresh items, as a matter of fact-the only stuff they nuke in the microwave are the sweets. The potato samosa was fine-I really liked the sweet sauce served with it. The nan, which was a last-minute decision, was great-cut in pieces instead of one round piece. And instead of a pitcher of dubious-looking tap water there is a water cooler on hand.

I will most certainly be coming back for more-perhaps the seekh kabab next time.
