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.

My husband has been to Indian restaurants all over the world and rates UTSAV as one of the best. We have been eating at UTSAV for the past 5 years with our family and when we eat here, we feel like we are with extended family. Joe and his staff are extremely kind and hard-working. They are always accommodating of... More

Yes, I'm what you might consider a food snob. It takes quite special for me to want to dine at a restaurant, never mind go back over and over again. Well, Utsav is one of my all time favorite restaurants in Greater Hartford and I dine here at least a few times a month. If you've never had Indian food... More

I met a friend here for lunch and was quite surprised at what a lovely place this was and how marvelous and tasty the food was on the buffet. The buffet foods were fresh and delicious and we were served warm naan at the table along with a sizzling platter of tandoori chicken. The service was outstanding and the restaurant... More

Serious charges of DISCRIMINATION AND ABUSIVE BEHAVIOR BY JOSEPH towards women's of Indian nationality. Joseph claims to be the owner. I am an Indian and I have been going to Utsav for last 4 years very frequently!!! I am a Professor at University of Connecticut and along with my colleagues, we just love the food at Utsav. Today 8/29/14-Friday, I... More

This restaurant has nice calming décor and a genuinely pleasant atmosphere. The food is exceptionally good. I have eaten in a fair number of Indian restaurants and while I am no expert, I like how the food is prepared here and the flavors are varied and exciting. The service is self-effacing, but as one other reviewer remarked, they don't often... More

Not so big and high end but still well kept and clean. The service was good although the waiters could have had friendly smiles. Food was served quicker than expected. Do not go for the highest spice level if you dont like hot hot stuff, since it will be very very spicy. The garlic naan is a must try if... More
