Nilu’s Kitchen (Bangladeshi cuisine) has always impressed me by their tasty (yet non-greasy) food and excellent service.
Their Iftar special during this Ramadan left us speechless.
For $15, I had
- Onion bhaji
- Fried aubergine
- Chickpeas (2 different styles)
- Sweet/spicy sauce
- Orange drink
- Fish dall
- Potato bharta (mash)
- Chicken korma
- Beef curry
- Cucumbers, lime, chilli
- Pilau rice
Menu changes every day and the host cannot really predict what they will be making for that night. Honestly, this left me a little skeptical before going there, but then I was surprised by the variety of dishes and the quality/taste of all the dishes.
Normally I don’t go for the fried iftar items but these items were at a completely different level. Not only they were tasty, but were not drenched in oil.
My hubby and I kept going back for the chicken korma. Bangladeshi style is cooked with saffron and is different from the typical Indian creamy/sweet/coconut style.
Service was excellent as usual. A nice family running the business. Nilu (the owner’s wife) in charge of the kitchen and her husband as the host. Kids as the assistants.
It’s always a pleasant going back there. Nilu’s Kitchen never fails to surprise me.
