Tikka Indian Grill

Tikka Indian Grill serves some of the city’s better Indian-American takeout (think classics like chicken tikka masala and rogan josh) at its four locations in Brooklyn and Queens. But you’ll have to make a special trip to Astoria to try that location’s exclusive kathi roll menu. Smoked eggplant, egg burji, keema—whatever you choose, you’ll get a medley of sauces and spices in your mouth that can only be followed by a thick mango lassi. Stick around the casual tile-floored dining room, or grab a few rolls to go before you hop on the N-train down the street.
