Excellent favors in an unexpected place!

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... read 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.

I've gotten takeout from Utsav a number of times but just had my first 'dine in' experience this past weekend. The decor is inviting and pleasant. The food is always amazing. Chicken Tikka Masala is easily my favorite dish, of any cuisine, ever. And Utsav's is out of this world. I know their food is incredible, but what really surprised... More

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
