Great first timer for Indian cuisine.

Staff was very helpful, lead us through the menu to accommodate our tastes. A little spicy for my taste, but the special yogurt was just right to offset the lamb dish.

As a native Brit, I love Indian food, but it's not as common here in the USA. This place was a great find. The service is 9/10 but the food is better than 10/10. A warning though, their opening hours vary depending on which website you visit, and to my best knowledge they're ALL wrong. They are closed from around... More

The best by far Indian food I have experienced. Superb service. Clean and friendly restaurant. Quiet area in a non descriptive strip mall.

My wife and I ate at Utsav about two weeks ago. The one word that we kept saying to each other was "average." Granted there is not much really good Indian food around the area, but it's just not worth it. The flavors are muddled, with no distinction. Breads are ok, but not top notch, and the rice served with... More

I've been here many times, and it's always been a positive experience. This time it was for a Sunday lunch buffet. I was not disappointed. The danger of a buffet is eating too much. So be prepared. Even when I thought I might not like a dish, I found it was not so. As always, the service was great. We... More

I went to the restaurant with my friends and had bad experiance. The food is worst. We have order FISH tandoori and they gave few small pieces of FISH with cucumber toasted like FISH. All cheating. When we asked about that, they said it was usual. Very rude manager. Again we ordered for shrimp biriyani which came like tomato rice.... More

Many restaurants start to rest on their laurels and to go downhill after a few years of providing first rate dining experiences. Utsav is an exception. We had our favorites. We split a masala dosa, and I can only say again: this is better than what we had in India. The tandoori rack of lamb is remarkably tender with a... More

UTSAV at lunch was a great experience. I have been there 4 times now. Very consistent service. Courteous staff. Clean and efficient operation. Lunch is buffet service with an ever changing variety of great treats. Tandoori Chicken is delicious. Prices are very reasonable. You will really enjoy the experience.
