Utsav is just amazing! The food is flavorful and aromatic. The Naan is wonderful and the samosas are huge! On top of great food, there's the attentive, but not smothering, service. And the place is so pretty. Don't let the fact that it's in a little strip mall fool you. ..there's a beautiful restaurant inside!

Outstanding Food, exemplary service, unbelievable ethics, always a smile, continuous nurturing, magnificently presented and more than ample portions at very affordable prices. Utsav is now my favorite restaurant. It caters to my vegetarian palate as well as all other tastes. Top score for Utsav.

My wife had a bad Indian experience in the past, so it has taken much convincing for her to try it again. Thankfully Utsav gave her a great one. We started off with the Kheema Naan, spiced ground lamb in naan bread, a very tasty combination and well within her sensitive taste. For the entree she had Lamb Pasanda, served... More

The staff was very kind and helpful for our first Indian meal. He was helpful with our questions and steered us in the direction to some delicious dishes. Highly recommend the calendar coumini and the ginger monsoon drink. He offered us free samples when we were confused and even after dinner drinks. I highly recommend Utsav!

Atmosphere is very average, but the quality of the food is well above average and rarely disappointing for an Indian restaurant in a suburban setting.

Went for the lunch buffet after hearing some great things about the food. The buffet offers a perfect way to sample a little of everything! It is a small buffet, with about 6 or 7 options , but they also serve the most delicious pita bread table side as well as a special of the day (bbq chicken for us).... More

This Indian restaurant in the south windsor/manchester area is located in a small shopping plaza. As the Indian food has become more common in the American household and with the increase of Indian families in the area it is able to survive very well. Plus the food is so good you cannot help but order from here. They do great... More

Spur of the moment decision led to a very good meal . Unless you are totally proficient in Indian food it is always a risky selection process but that's part of the adventure . will it be too spicy , too hot , too chewy, too whatever? We had a lam kabob that was very tasty but a little too... More
