You will find no frills here—and minimal service—but you will find food fresh off the fire at rock-bottom prices. This is just one location in a local mini-chain of Indian-Pakistani eateries that cater primarily to starving students, young office workers, local South Asians, and anyone else who likes spicy food but doesn't give a damn about ambience. The tandoor-fired chicken tikka masala, bhindi (okra with onion and spices), garlic naan, and tongue-scorching
tandoori lamb chops are favorites. The Bollywood music is too loud, but the naan is the size of a hubcap and the chai tea is free.
