Hi CH- two of my Indian coworkers have been complaining about the lack of spicy food here in the city. Can you recommend an Indian restaurant (in Manhattan) that really brings the heat?
Thanks for your help!
The chicken vindaloo at Bukara Grill is really spicey and is really good. I love Chola, as well. Of coarse, I am not Indian and have never (alas!) travelled there.
When I call Minar for takeaway, I usually specify "Desi spicy" on items like vindaloo. If it's something not meant to be typically spicy (like malai kofta or korma) I just ask for extra-hot. Haandi also does pretty well. Typically I find that the take-aways offer much better spicy cuisine than the sit downs (ironic since it's the South Indian sit-downs that are supposed to be blazing!).
