Khana Peena

Since Currylicious and Khana Peena are so close together on College Avenue we tried not to order any of the same items.

We messed up and ordered veggie samosas (which we order every time we get Indian food). They were decent, but what stood out was that green cilantro/mint sauce. Sometimes that green stuff can be watery and bland, this was thick, zesty and super flavorful. Oh, man I want some right now.

Then we shared:
Lamb Korma and Veggie Masala (they include one serving of rice for every person with every dish). The sauce on the Lamb Korma was creamy and wonderfully spiced, but the lamb itself was kind of tough and not that awesome.
The Veggie Masala had some trouble. The sauce was almost too sweet and the veggies themselves weren't that exciting. Imagine Campbell's soup vegetables.

The Garlic Naan was as beautiful as it was delicious. Nuff said.

Over all we thought it was pretty good. If we had ordered the Chicken Korma instead of the lamb we might have loved it more. We give Khana Peena 3.5 Sabuys out of 5.

Disclaimer: We sat next to some very rude people, this might have negatively affected our Khana Peena experience. Some of the tables are pretty close together, and we ended up next to some real a-holes. Anytime we took pictures they would make snide comments to each other about it. We didn't want to make a scene, so we didn't take very many pictures this trip. We may come back to Khana Peena and update this review at a later date.

Here is the menu!

Next stop: Marzano!


  1. ugh...sorry you guys had to manage lame o's. f people and their in ability to keep to themselves. photos look great as usual.

  2. Next time take a picture of the jerks who are making fun of you for taking pictures!

  3. The chicken is much better than the lamb. Their lunch buffet (all you can eat for $7.99 with soda and naan)can't be beat!
