Dinner at knifepoint is the specialty of this kosher Uzbek kebab house in Rego Park, where platters piled high with cumin-tinged, skewered-and-grilled meats constantly emerge from the bustling kitchen. Start with mantoos (meat dumplings) or a hearty chickpea and veal tail soup, sopped up with crisp tandoori-baked bread. It’s easy to spot Salut’s “Rego-stan” regulars: They’re the ones sitting around bottles of vodka, transfixed by Russian soaps flickering on the overhead TV.
