With a forgettable name and an out-of-the-way Brooklyn Center location, Great India enters the race handicapped. But then they rush to the head of the pack! Definitely try the murg malai kabob, chicken breast marinated in a lemon accented cream, coated with cardamom powder, fire-grilled, topped with fresh-cut cilantro, and served on a red-hot platter sizzling with onions. Simple, spic-and-span ambience and a beer and wine license round out Great India, which might have been more memorably called "Doesn't Look Like Much, But Has Really Great Food India."
