Bangladeshi immigrants are the fastest-growing segment of newly licensed New York City cab drivers, and when they go looking for a taste of their native cuisine, this bare-bones Curry Hill stop is a popular destination. There’s ample seating in the dining room and a prayer space in the basement, and the large-screen TV is tuned to the satellite channel ATN Bangla. Bangladeshis “all love fish and rice,” according to the woman behind the counter, so we tried the restaurant’s fish platter, a mere $7 (including tax) meal that comes with a slab of curried, bone-in butterfly fish, accompanied by a plate of white rice and a choice of okra, squash or lentil soup. A sizable piece of nan and a cup of Bangladeshi tea will run you just $2 more.
