Just inside the front door of Merit Kabab Palace, you’ll see an assortment of things like samosas, paratha, and tandoori chicken. And you should order all of those things. This is a small, constantly busy place where you can just seat yourself, then order some very good, relatively inexpensive curries, kababs, and biryanis. There’s also a separate counter in the back where you can get some quick momos with a side of fried noodles.
