I have been to Land Thai Kitchen several times and always enjoyed what I ordered. Some of my favorite things on the menu are the vegetable dumplings, Green Curry, the Pad Thai, and the Pad See Ew. Each of the dishes are full of flavor that is traditional to NYC Thai food, but also has a distinct unique flavor. For example, the vegetable dumplings have ground up peanuts as part of the vegetable dumpling mix. Check out their green dumpling skin:

Another one of my favorites is the Chicken Green Curry. From flavor to presentation this dish is just spectacular. It is not too heavy and just spicy enough to keep you coming back for more. Check out this picture below:

Also, if you don’t have a ton of time for a long meal, Land also offers a great lunch special for only $8 which includes both an appetizer and a main dish! Click here for an example menu of their lunch special.

Indian Food Doesn’t Always Have To Be A Kick In The Pants

I think that Brick Lane Curry House has one of the best in-house lunch specials out there! First off, it is really authentic Indian food. Brick Lane has a great understanding for the balance between flavor and spice. When you order a curry, you can actually taste the flavors and spices in the curry as opposed to being overwhelmed by spice.

So, why do I recommend Brick Lane for lunch? Because of the following reasons:
For $10 you get one of the following curries with your choice of chicken, prawns, fish, lamb, vegetable, tofu or paneer. Then you can choose one of the following sauces: Marsala, Bhuna, Madras, Goan, Vindaloo. And wait, there is still more. With your main dish you get Daal of the Day, Mixed Vegetable of the Day, rice, naan and desert!

You get a complete meal for just $10! And it is not only the price that is impressive! It’s the quality and freshness of the ingredients too! Everything is fresh and served to perfection. One of my big telltale signs of a good Indian restaurant is how well they can prepare chicken tikka, meaning that it is moist and full of flavor. And yes, Brick Lane’s chicken tikka is never dry and always done right!

I usually get the Tikka Marsala or the Tikka Goan. It really depends on what mood I am in, but today, I decided to go for the Goan. Before I went to Brick Lane, I had never head of Tikka Goan, so here it what it is in case you haven’t tried it: “A delightful recipe of green chilies, coconut milk, coriander, and vinegar” all flavored with sweet tomatoes. Check out the picture of our entire meal, with my favorite, the Tikka Goan in the middle.

Also, the staff is very friendly and attentive. They are always asking if you need anything or refills on things like rice or bread. Also, you can check out the full menu and what others are saying about this great little place! And if you are having one of those days where you can’t get out of the office for a sit down lunch, they also have Lunch Boxes To Go for those who still want delightful Indian. If you are looking for amazing Indian food in Midtown East, at the right price, come try Brick Lane’s In-House lunch special for just $10.
