Bengal Curry And Kabab

We took the PATH from Journal Square in Jersey City to the World Trade Center station today. The plan was to catch the 'C' train to 81 St to visit the American Museum of Natural History. It was already about noon when we arrived at the WTC station so we decided to walked to TriBeCa in search of food for lunch.
We saw this hole in the wall Indian restaurant and the lunch specials looked pretty good. So, we decided to give it a try. It's located on West Broadway, between Murray and Warren St. There are a few names on the store front, so we do not know which is it's real name. It goes by Bengal Curry and Kabab, Bangal Curry II and Benegal Curry & Kabab. It's basically like an Indian fast food restaurant, where you get to pick your choice of meat or fish, two types of vegetables and either nan bread or white, yellow or brown rice.

I had the lamb curry with stir fried cabbage and spinach ($6.99). I chose to have that with nan instead of rice. The lamb was really tender and not too spicy. I really enjoyed the nan bread tremendously. Freshly made upon order, it was crispy on the outside and soft in the inside.

Kevin tried the beef curry with gobi mattar, which is cauliflower and peas and mixed vegetables ($6.99). He also had the nan bread. The portions were pretty large and it was way too much for us to finish up the food.
We picked up our dessert from the refrigerator at the back of the restaurant. There were many colorful and pretty looking desserts on display. We shared the Almond Burfee ($2.50). It's covered with crunchy almonds, has this milky after taste and its too not sweet (which is good).

I'm really glad to have found this small restaurant. No frill, basic decor but the food is really really good. It's been a while since I last ate such good nan. I would definitely go back again to try their Mango Lassi, Keema Paratha and other yummy stuff. Oh, and if you are living in the TriBeCa area, they deliver too!
