Eating a meal at Tikka without having a second order of naan is like taking classes pass-fail. You technically complete it, but you don’t get the full experience. Our favorite dishes at this casual one-room Indian spot in Williamsburg, like the lamb vindaloo and the very spicy black pepper chicken, come in pools of sauces that you’ll want to sop up with extra bread. We’re fans of this bright space with floor-to-ceiling windows for lunch, when you get samosas, naan, and an entree for $10. It’s also one of the few BYO spots in the neighborhood. Come here before a night out or a movie at Williamsburg Cinemas a few doors down.
