Saffron Garden in Sunnyside

Just got takeout from Saffron Garden which opened today on Skillman Avenue. It replaced what used to be Basmati Table. Let me start by saying that I have little experience with Indian food. That being said, I really enjoyed my meal.

My wife and I split the chicken tikka and aloo papri chat for appetizers. The chicken tikka had a decent amount of kick and was very tender and juicy. The chat was delicious, but I was hoping for more potatoes. I had the lamb vindaloo which I thought was really good. Not as spicy as I expected it to be, but I've thought that each of the few times I tried vindaloo. My wife had the aloo gobi, which she really enjoyed. I really don't like cauliflower, so I can't really say if I thought this was good or not.

They have a pretty big menu with a lot of stuff I've never heard of. I'm looking forward to trying some new dishes.
