Lucky Dhaba is next door to India Cash and Carry, the frenetic South Asian supermarket on El Camino Real in Sunnyvale.

This place is humming too, with folks lining up for take out or sit down meals served from a long counter of hot food items. The chicken biryani was really fabulous with flavorful chicken anchoring spice and herb draped basmati rice. The chicken tikka was really hot, tempered by the cool raita in which the chicken was dunked, ritual bath style before being eaten. The naan was warm and pliant, pockmarked with carbonized blisters adding earthy flavors.
