Kiran Palace – Indian in Hicksville, NY

Kiran Palace
Category: Indian
67 E Old Country Rd
Hicksville, NY 11801
(516) 932-5191

Located in the King Kullen mini mall, behind Pep Boys. It is either on OCR or 107, to me it’s not clear. I hope you will have an easier time finding it than I did.

One great dish which we were told is offered NOWHERE in NYC is Dahi Wala Bharta – which is eggplant in a yellowish yogurt sauce with spices in it. It’s got some heat to it, but the consistency of the eggplant cools you by the time it goes down. Wow, what depth! what a vegetable concoction!

Nan was everything I wanted. Curry chicken had a great sauce on it. Tandoori chicken was moist and went down well. Desserts for the buffet were a cold rice pudding and a hot gulab jamun – both were a pleasant topper to my stomach full of chicken, goat, eggplant, rice and spices.

A weekday lunch, and they had a good amount of locals, which shows it was legit. Minutes before, I was around the corner at a better location vegetarian Indian buffet and I could hear a pin drop – there was one man in there, he handed me the menu.
