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
