Indian Food Delight

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

We so enjoy Utsav--the food is exceptional. The waiters as well as the owner are efficient and attentive to each patron. We absolutely think this is one of the very best restaurants we have ever experienced. If you want a totally wonderful Indian buffet or dinner, choose Utsav. It is the BEST!!

Utsav serves the finest Indian cuisine I've ever had, and we've certainly tried others. Today we enjoyed the lunch buffet. The buffet food is carefully attended for cleanliness and temperature. During the week, the lunch buffet offers some salad vegetables as well as chutneys and sauces (raita, tamarind, etc ). There is always a crispy deep fried vegetable dish appetizer.... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the area. The menu has a large selection of food and you can choose to have your dish as spicy or mild as you'd like. They have amazing deals on their "lunch boxes" as well and they come with plenty of food! The service is fast and they really go the extra... More

If you like Indian food, Utsav is the place to go. If you are familiar with Indian food, they can also make dishes for you if they are not on the menu. The only thing is that the prices are just a little high, so I don't go often. It is a cute little place for a date night or... More

We have been there so many times and every time the food was great! Whenever we are planning to go to any Indian restaurant.. My first and last choice would be Utsav only.. Some of the must try from their menu is Lahsuni Gobhi, mango lassi and almost everything.. P.S. - I am a vegetarian...

My companion declared that her chicken Korma was the best she had ever eaten. My goat curry was also excellent. The only disappointment were the samosas, the pastry was not crisp and the filling was mainly mushed peas, hence four stars. Well worth a visit.
