Restaurant Review: Bengal Tiger Indian Food

Details: Located at 58 W 56th St. Fl. 2, New York, NY 10019. The official site is http://www.bengaltigerindianfood.com/

Bengal Tiger Indian Food is an Indian restaurant in midtown Manhattan. They have a pretty good lunch deal, which is what I got.

The lunch deal they have includes two choice of dishes, rice and naan bread for around ten dollars. They have vegetarian options for those who are into that sort of thing. I had the chicken tikka masala and the aloo gobi matar (stir fried potatoes, cauliflower and peas).

The dining area is up a flight of shady looking stairs. It’s a dimly lit, kind of shady looking space. The people working there were fine though and I got the food to go.

Overall, Bengal Tiger Indian Food is a decent place to get Indian food takeout in midtown Manhattan at a decent price. I’d recommend it for lunch during a work day.

Score: 6/10

Restaurant Review: Maki Maki

Details: Located at 1369 6th Ave, New York, NY 10019. The official site is http://makimaki.nyc/

Maki Maki is a relatively new takeout only sushi place in midtown Manhattan. What differentiates this place from other sushi places in the area is the higher than average quality of the sushi, prices which match lower quality sushi options in the area, and their focus on hand rolls.

Restaurant Review: Dim Sum Palace

Details: Located at 334 W 46th St, New York, NY 10036. The official site is  https://www.dimsumpalace.com/

I didn’t come here for the dim sum, I came here for the takeout. Had the general tso’s chicken lunch special where, as at most place, you get a soup (got corn soup) and rice (got vegetable fried rice) with the chicken. Cost around ten dollars. Overall, it was okay. The vegetable fried rice wasn’t great.

Score: 5/10

Food Cart Review: The Halal Guys

Details: There a number of carts here that are Halal Guys and a number that are imitators. The one cart that is undoubtedly a genuine Halal Guys cart is on the southwest corner of 6th Avenue and 53rd Street, New York, NY. The official site is http://thehalalguys.com/

A number of years ago I came here once under the pretense that this was the best halal cart in New York City. To my recollection, I paid around five dollars for what was arguably the best halal in the city, though not by a wide margin. Fast forward to the present day, and while I can say the food is about the same as it was the last time I had it, the price isn’t.

Restaurant: Kiku Japanese Restaurant

Details: Located at 50 W 55th St, New York, NY 10019. I couldn’t find the official site so here’s the Yelp page: https://www.yelp.com/biz/kiku-japanese-restaurant-new-york-2

Kiku is one of those completely not authentic Japanese takeout restaurants. In fact, it’s the kind of restaurant that you find online and order takeout from, but one you never actually visit. As someone who has actually visited this place, I can say that its actual location is kind of a shit hole.
