An Indian restaurant offering a wide selection of dishes opened at 42-02 Greenpoint Avenue on Sunday.
The restaurant, called BBQ Hut, serves Indian/ Pakistani and Bangladeshi food–and is owned by Mohmod Ali, who has lived in Sunnyside for the past five years. This is Ali’s first restaurant.
Ali, who is from Pakistan, said he opened the restaurant because he keeps hearing people in the neighborhood say there was a shortage of good Indian/Pakistani food. “Many people like Indian food,” he said. “People just keep saying it.”
The restaurant charges prices such as $7.00 for a curry chicken dish and $9.00 for chicken tikka masala (click for menu). Both dishes come with rice and salad. There is also an extensive vegetarian menu.
The restaurant does not serve alcohol.
Ali said the restaurant has space for about 30 diners. It also offers take out and free delivery.
The location was formerly occupied by a Thai restaurant, which went out of business.
