If your are getting in or out of JFK International Airport, NY , the Taj Mahal Restaurant in Jamaica is a good place to eat.
Its a small place with simple decor but is clean, cozy and inexpensive. The staff is friendly and the food is delicious. We went there recently on our way back home from the airport.
We ordered some Malai Kababs, Chicken Samosas, Vegetable Samosas, Butter Chicken, Mixed Vegetable Curry (I think it was Jalfrezi) Roti, Naan, Mango Lassi and Lamb Biryani.
The Biryani , Vegetable Samosas and Vegetable Curry were not bad , they were OK. But the Lassi, Chicken Samosas, Butter Chicken were awesome. Their Rotis are excellent, fresh from the griddle hot and the kababs sizzle :) The salad they serve complimentary is also very light n fresh , without any dressing.
The Chai, we did not like much, may be because by the time we had it in the car it had become cold.
They also had freshly made Paans (for those who eat) but we dint get a chance to try them.
All in all we left the place with content bellies.
