Lamb is slow baked for hours and falls off the bone. Raita is spot on. I found it out of curiosity to see what was at the end of the N/W train. Just before the last stop was Balkh Shish Kabab. I tried it and have taken most out of town visitors since.
It is esp right when you are seeking low key authenticity outside of the city. Great date place because it is in a relaxed Astoria neighborhood.
