    Boti, Channp, daal palak, naan--as good as ever. Took my brother there last night for his first experience with Indian food and he was blown away.

    Loved the Tom & Jerry cartoons on the tube...

    LTH,

    First meal of the year at Khan BBQ which portends well for 2008. Meat wise we went all chicken, chicken boti, broasted chicken, frontier chicken rice and tandoori chicken. The tandoori chicken, which I don't usually order, was particularly nice, moist, tender, tinted with turmeric, lovely to look at as well as eat.

    Of the four of one had not previously been to Khan, he, like pretty much every first timer to Khan, was taken aback with quality, bounty and value.

    Enjoy,
    Gary

    Twice this week I took people who'd never been to Khan over there for dinner and both meals were, of course, just fantastic. I took no pictures this time around as I've already posted images of just about every dish they serve there. In fact, I joked that I would take no more pictures at Khan until pork appeared on their menu :wink:

    But in all seriousness, everything we ate there this week was as good as -- or better than -- ever. Of course, the chicken boti is just out of this world but the tandori fish was moist, meaty and fiery. The broast chicken was crispy, spicy, juicy and totally addictive. Even the chicken seekh kabab, which I don't order very often, was outstanding, with its subtle heat and aggressive seasoning. Sides, too, were phenomenal. I know there's been some mention here of their unevenness. That's something I've only experienced on one occasion, a few months back. Dishes like chana masala, daal palak and aloo gobi are just sensational at Khan nearly every time I eat there.

    This continues to be one of my personal benchmarks for great, reliable, irresistably-delicious food. Yes, I know other fine places on Devon and I do try to hit them on occasion but Khan is just the trumpcard that beats them all. It's really hard to go anywhere else, when you have Khan as an option. When your mildly skeptical friends are licking their fingers and thanking you over and over for bringing them, it's a great feeling. In those moments, I just give a tip of my cap and a smile to Mr. Khan.

    Ron,

    If you can go to Khan twice in a week, I guess I can go at least once. :)

    Everything was stellar, simply top of the mark, juicy spicy crunchy Broasted Chicken, thanks again Kuhdo for pointing it out, I was, and continue to be, so enamored with the Chicken Boti it may have been quite a while until I got to broasted chicken.

    Dal Palak was a home run as well and as a capper Khan BBQ is now proudly displaying it's LTHforum Great Neighborhood Award.

    Hypothetical question: were you to wake up in the am and Khan was gone, where would you then haunt, what would be your second choice? Khan's had a monopoly on my Devon Ave. experiences for these past 15 months, but I'd like to give polygamy a try...

    What an ominous and apparently not so hypothetical question!

    I went to Khan's today and found that it was closed. You can imagine my dismay. We may all come up on these posts with great ways to deal with the hypothetical situation that chezbrad posed, but when it came my turn to deal with it for real -- knowing that my craving for boti chicken and daal would be denied -- I ended up drowning my sorrows in an underwhelming buffet at Tiffin -- one of the first places that I stumbled into after I couldn't deal with walking around in the cold any more. I know, I know....my only defense was that I was cold, hungry, disoriented, and confused. :(

    On my way back to the car I ran into Mr. Khan. I told him how I lamented being deprived of his wonderful cuisine today and he assured me that he would reopen in three days (by Tuesday).

    If driving to Devon is as long a trek for you as it is for me, I suggest you call first if you plan on heading there this or early in the week.

    Drove by earlier tonight. Seems like a closed-for-now notice remains up on the front door. Sorry. :( Hopefully they'll be back soon.
