If Dhamaka is the special occasion, go-all-out Indian spot on the LES, Gazab should be your destination for a casual weeknight dinner. Some of the standout dishes include spicy parsi lamb salli boti that has falling-apart chunks of meat swimming in a rich tomato-based gravy, kale-spinach paneer, and small plates of charcoal-grilled, juicy chicken tikka. Most entrees are under $25 and the dining room usually isn’t too busy. The next time you’re thoroughly craving biryani (and don’t feel like existing in public for more than 20 minutes), stop by for a takeout order.
