Veeray De Dhaba’s tiffin lunch specials are some of the best deals you can find in the East Village. For $16 (or $18 if you want tandoori), you’ll get a combo of five different dishes including a lamb or chicken entree of the day, vegetable dish of the day, richly spiced dal, fluffy basmati rice, and a side of naan. We’ve tried the creamy butter chicken and spicy lamb curry, and both come with a hearty helping of meat. To the point where you could easily turn these combos into two meals. For dinner, try the goat biryani - it’s super fragrant and the meat is extra tender on the bone.
