Desi (Indian-Chinese) restaurants in Queens
Can anyone recommend any good Indian/Chinese (Desi) type restaurants in either Queens or Manhattan? Thanks
Try Tangra Masala, 8709 Grand Ave
Flushing or Chinese Mirch
120 Lexington Ave
New York, NY 10016
Good soups, stay away from the seafood
Hot sauce on the side ?
I like the Tangra in Elmhurst (mentioned above) a bit better than the one in Sunnyside on QB. That said, both are very tasty. As for Chinese Mirch (and the several nearby Desi-Chinese joints), I prefer the Tangras over these anyday. Just be geared up for an MSG overload - they all tend to use it in abundance.

God yes. What did we have that night, 6 or 7 dishes? Almost everything tasted like it was spiced and sauced identically. Muddy flavors too. It was too bad because we really wanted to like the place.
On the other hand the highlight of my evening was the overblown and amazingly kitschy mural depicting grinning and sweaty charioteers flogging a frenzied team of horses. It looked like something out of Liberace's rec room.
I enjoyed the food at Chinese Mirch in Curry Hill on my one and only visit. I've got to get back there and see if I like it as much as I did the first time.
