Indian Curry Spot Yonkers

Well, I have been noticing this place for a long time (on Kimball Avenue near the Cross County Shopping Center).

Decided to finally try it for Easter side dishes.

Ordered three things that I thought would be a good test. Channah Masalah, Aloo Gobi and Okra.

I found their Web site and it looks better than the establishment itself. It says you can place your order online to be picked up but it didn't work and they never got it. Therefore I had to wait around for 30 minutes. I must say I got a bit worried because the place has all the ambiance of a Greyhound Bus Station in Hanoi. But, we thought, if it is bad we will just take one for the team since I have not seen any mention of the place here on Chowhounds.

I think we spent about $23 and it is a load of food. I just tasted everything and it seems pretty good to me. It is nice to have good casual Indian food so close to home. I mean, most places cost about twice as much.

Granted, it is probably not Moghul in Edison but for the money and convenience it is darn good. Just phone ahead so you don't have to wait around (not sure how the Web site works or if it has any use at all).

    I live nearby and have ordered from there pretty often. I don't think they even offer the option to eat there anymore, it seems to have become a strictly takeout kind of business. If you go in and order you'll definitely have to wait, but I think it's worth it, they seem to make everything in the small kitchen in the back to order.
    The Chicken Tikka Masala and the Chicken Biryani (sp?) are both VERY good.

      Bukhara Grill: Indian Spice Rave is my favorite place in all Westchester for Indian lunch buffet. They have SO many dishes and they are all delicious!

            Now I am hearing about some other Indian take out/buffet place that is behind the Cross County off Vredenberg. Has anyone tried that? The prices seemed just as reasonable and has just a slightly cheerier ambiance it could be the go to place for convenience.

              There used to be an indian sit down restaurant on Vredenberg which changed hands and we stopped going. Prices went up and they were charging for rice. Maybe it has changed hands again? Do you have a name?

                Can't Remember. Starts with a B I think. I noticed an ad for it in the most recent Clipper magazine.

                  I think it is called Bukkara Grill. They took over from previous restaurant. We went once. Sat down looked at the very expensive menu, realized they were charging for rice and left. My favorite Indian right now is Spice (can't remember whole name) in Tuckahoe. We live in Fleetwood.

                    Food at Bukhara the two times we've been there has been very good and certainly better than the spot's predecessor ("Nyauta"?), A bit pricier than most, but the ingredient quality was excellent (esp. the lamb), and the spicing was good. Tandoori lambchops were a standout. Service was fine. I didn't mind paying for rice or anything else (except tap water - there I draw the line) if the overall experience is worth it. Haven't tried Spice Village yet, but it's on our list based on recent postings.
