Madina, Bangladeshi in Kensington
When I first tried Madina, Bangladeshi take-out (with an eat-in option) at Coney Island Ave & Beverly Road, I didn't like it, but it's grown on me over the years. I got delivery from there twice in the last couple of weeks and it's gotten better. The samosa chat stands out for me as a delicious combination of spices with a hint of sweetness, vaguely reminiscient of back-in-the-day Mina. The palak paneer (cheese and spinach) doesn't scale Mina heights, but it's still quite good. I also got a lamb dish (forgot which one, sorry) that I liked a lot as well, with a nice tender lamb in a spicy sauce.
In light of the sad demise of Paradise East, a rare bright light in the otherwise uninspired Pakistani dining choices along Coney Island Avenue, it's nice to have good South Asian in the neighborhood.
