My review on TripAdvisor:
I enjoy coming to this little hole in the wall where it is a lot of home cooking and caters to many of the delivery people, Uber Eats and Doordash drivers, cabbies and members of the Traffic Police on the NYPD. It is always crowded in the afternoon for lunch.
Lahori Kabab is a great little hole in the wall in “Curry Hill”
I love all the appetizer foods for snacks when I am researching the area for my blog, “MywalkinManhattan.com” traveling to Kips Bay. There is a nice selection of freshly made items both appetizers and entrees.
The restaurant is not the fanciest. It is lined with booths on both sides of the restaurant and the counter in the back has shelves lined with all the entrees and other delicious foods.
On my first trip to the restaurant, I had the Chicken Samosa’s ($1.50), which are a type of flaky turnover, that is filled with ground chicken and spices wrapped in dough casing. They are baked to perfection and are packed with flavor.

The Aloo Tikki’s ($1.50) are a fried potato patty that are filled with ground potato and again loaded with spices and served with a creamy yogurt sauce. The only problem with them is when they microwave them they can turn a little soggy.

On my second trip when I was touring the neighborhood for another blog, I tried the Chicken Roll ($1.50) which was a type of chicken croquette. It was filled with ground chicken and curry and when served with the yogurt sauce it cools down all the spices.
The service is very nice and the staff is a help when needing to know what is what. There are a lot of decisions to make from the long list of entrees that you can choose from.
I look forward to trying everything on future trips to “Curry Hill”.
