Indian-Pakistani-Bangladeshi newcomer in New Hyde Park
Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi dishes star at the new Fiza Family Diner, which recently opened in the New Hyde Park space that once housed Chuk Dey India. I stopped into the casual spot to pick up a menu. For now, there's no table service, but rather you order at the counter and your food is brought to a table.
What caught my attention was the roster of kati rolls, a popular street food that originated in Calcutta. The paratha wraps come with a variety of fillings, such as egg (2 for $5), achari aloo, or spiced potatoes (2 for $5), chicken Malai (2 for $6) and chicken shish kebab ($4).
Also on the menu are lamb chops ($10), a chicken tandoori platter ($9), goat curry ($8) and a mixed vegetable curry ($5) as well as a comprehensive selection of tandoor-baked breads.
Fiza Family Diner is at 3334 Hillside Ave., New Hyde Park, 516-280-4688, fizafamilydiner.com
