Patiala is a small take out joint that takes its name from a city in southeastern Punjab, in northern India. Located few steps from The Madison Square Garden, it is more a grab and go eatery, the seating being very limited.

The way it works is that you order a box: lamb box, chicken tikka box, vegan box, vegetarian box...Jodi went for the vegetarian box that had rice, yellow dal, saag paneer (cottage cheese with spinach) and aloo jeera (potatoes tossed with cumin and coriander - spicy).

On my side, I got the chicken tikka masala with yellow dal and aloo gobi (spiced cauliflower and potatoes cooked with cumin and coriander - spicy).

They both came with a deliciously charred naan and we ordered a samosa that was pretty good, flaky and crispy.

The food was overall ok, nothing to dream about: there was more rice than anything else, the dal was a bit watery and bland, and the chicken tikka masala not memorable. However, the mango lassi and the gulab jamun, my favorite dessert, were very good and made me less regret to stop by this place. So I guess you know I would not go back, right?
