Regulars still recall the previous location that engulfed Khan 1.0 in a charcoal-sparked fire, while newcomers seem puzzled by the brusque staff and the glaring florescent lights. Never a place for a romantic rendezvous, Khan has always divulged its specialty in its name: “B.B.Q.,” specifically marinated, charred-edge, tandoor-cooked chicken chunks (boti) and juicy sausage-shaped ground-beef patties (seekh kebab). Simple sides like soupy lentils flavored with fenugreek or creamy spinach with potato chunks are as great (and cheap) as they were at the old Khan, proving that consistency brings loyalty more than frills.
