Very decent Indian food in midtown

But if you overlook that, you can end up with some nice Indian snacks, entrees and main course dishes...both... read more

Cheap and good midtown lunch options which have fixed addresses are tough to come by but Indus certainly fits the bill. Under $10 for a two curry box lunch with fresh homemade chapati or naan is tough to beat. Also cheap beer if you're looking for a budget curry dinner....

Didn't have the buffet but ordered from the menu. Good food, good portions and great value. If you are looking for a quick bite of Indian food near Times square, this restaurant can't be beat.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
