I HAVE JUST BEEN TO SONALI CUISINE WITH MY BOYFRIEND. THE DMIMED LIGHT AND SLOW MUSIC WAS VERY RELAXING.THE PLACE MAY BE A LITTLE TO SMALL BUT IT IS COMFORTABLE AND BEAUTIFUL.I TRIED THE HALEEM AND I CAN POSITIVELY SAY THE HALEM HAS IMPROVED.THEIR LAMB BIRYANI WAS EXCELLENT. I HAVE BEEN A FEW TIMES SO I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT THIS RESTUARANT HAS IMPROVED.AT FIRST I CAN SAY THE EMPLOYEES WAS CONFUSED BECAUSE THEY WERE NEW TO THIS.NOW THEIR SERVICE IS PERFECT. TWO YOUNG GIRL WERE THE WAITRESS,THEY WERE VERY FRIENDLY AS THEY SERVED US OUR FOOD. THE DESERT FIRNI WHICH IS A RICE COCONUT PUDDING WAS GREAT AND IT IS VERY CHEAP ONLI $2. THERE PRICE IS VERY REASONABLE. I ENJOYED EATING AND SPENDING MY TIME.

Sunnyside Sonali Cuisine gets Good Review | Sunnyside Post

[…] “Prices are cheap because the food is bad. Service is OK but I don’t think they have eaten their own food or they would have improved on it. We had haleem – it had big, fatty chunks of meat thrown in with a thin watery gravy. It tasted like left over curry. Sonali soup was too oily. We were told eveyrthing is made fresh but found out that this is far from the truth.” (comment: http://sunnysidepost.com/2009/10/indian-restaurant-opens-in-sunnyside/) […]

Prices are cheap because the food is bad. Service is OK but I don’t think they have eaten their own food or they would have improved on it. We had haleem – it had big, fatty chunks of meat thrown in with a thin watery gravy. It tasted like left over curry. Sonali soup was too oily. We were told eveyrthing is made fresh but found out that this is far from the truth. The mixed grill we ordered had a thin, hard as rock kabab with burnt ends and very small shrimp. The tandori chicken was moist but it was not even warm! If is it grilled and if they make it fresh, shouldnt it be hot? Their yougurt dip had sugar in it instead of salt. The roti was NOT whole wheat. Naan was good. The paratha was good but it was not flaky as the description claimed. All in all, pay a little extra and eat someplace with better food. THIS WAS NOT WORTH THE $ NO MATTER IF IT IS REASONABLY PRICED!
