    The Spicy Buradi comes with either chicken or lamb, but we endorse the latter, which stands up well against the not-too-spicy mint-habanero sauce that moistens the wrap sandwich.

    The veggie biryani and the veggie Kati rolls are amazing. Delicately flavored potato sauce just adds that pump to the whole dish. Gd stuff,be prepared for the long long… (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Try two kathi rolls ($6). "Fillings include chicken, lamb or vegetarian, but communication is rocky, so what you get may be a surprise. As long as you can take some spice, it’s all good." Read more

    my standard lunch combo is 1 king koti, 1 chennai; little spicy, little sweet. just saying kati roll will get you a pune, and that generic stuff is for lunch tourists!

    The kati rolls—burrito-esque wraps with spicy fillings—are the thing to get at this Indian meat-over-rice cart.

    Chicken n lamb Kati rolls are the bomb; biryani is pretty solid. Try the sampler combo of Kati roll, samosa n chicken biryani

    Had chicken biryani (gotta get it spicy and white white sauce) and it was delicious, but now I need a coffee because I am about to pass out at my desk.

    King Koti Roll! Spicy chicken tikka marinated in yogurt and spices on a chapati roll. The perfect midtown snack.

    The Kati Roll is delicious, and only $3. But ask for extra napkins, because Mr. Biryani Guy isn't very good at closing them. Still worth it, though.

    they seem to've removed all menu signage, so you better already know what you want and how much it should cost

    Great flavor in the chicken but the rice is plain and underwhelming compared to TriniPaki Boys a few books over

    Lunchtime is chaos. Buy whatever prepared plate or kati rolls they give you otherwise you'll be in for a long wait

    Had the veg biryani, surprised that its called a biryani. Tastes similar to rice served in other food carts. Taste wise was not bad, but I would not venture out to call it a biryani.

    Our favorite is the Chennai roll. (Sweet + Sour + Spicy) And just as a warning, the lamb is just generic gyro meat. Read more

    Lamb kati roll, tastes like the famous halal cart but in a more manageable portion and in a delicious wrapper. Chicken Tikka masala kati roll was not so good.
