Good Indian in Bay Ridge?
INDIA PASSAGE has been ultra-consistent over the years and is more of an elegant, "classics" place than the mid-range or steam-table joints.
Favorite dishes are the sizable samosas with great green and tamarind sauces, spicy sheekh kabab, chicken tikka saag(creamy spinach). Anything from the tandoor. Ask for spicy yogurt sauce for these. Fragrant basmati race served with dinner entrees.
The owner Farouk is a gentleman and will work with your tastes. And it does get packed on the weekends.
I know of two Indian restaurants in BR- India Passage and Baluchi's. Have not been to either of them, and have not seen much traffic in either of them. Of course, that comment may not have anything to do with the quality of the food, though I have been to other Baluchi outposts and they are nothing special.
