Bhatti is an ultra-authentic north Indian restaurant in the heart of New York City that's refined yet affordable, upscale and still comfortable. Take your pick from a variety of kebabs and curries and watch as our master chefs work their magic at the Bhatti. Bhatti Indian Grill is Indian food like you've never tasted-the flavors are unique, harmonious on the palate, a lot less of the overwhelming heat that's associated with Indian cuisine and something all together far more sophisticated. The recipes are rare finds even in India, where they're special treats sought out from master chefs. Bhatti is a real gourmand's restaurant-seriously made food with top-notch, educated service to do it justice. Bhatti's mastermind Gaurav Anand had early opportunities to train and partner with India's master chefs and run a culinary empire in his home country. But a spark that ignited on his first trip to the Big Apple proved that Anand would have to act on even bigger aspirations. It was with this passion and his extensive knowledge of North Indian cuisine that he decided to open Bhatti Indian Grill in August 2009. Anand is also owner of the newly opened Moti Mahal Delux in Manhattan's Upper East Side. Kebabs are the specialty of the house and they're anything but typical. The signature dish is Gilauti Kebab, which is steeped in history, originating in the province of Lucknow as a royal meal for a king who had lost his teeth in old age. Unwilling to let go of his dignity (and thereby his ability to eat meat), the king turned to the greatest kebab maker in the land, who devised a special marinade incorporating 160 spices resulting in a melt-in-your-mouth texture that didn't require any chewing. Anand is one of the few chefs to have learned the secrets to the recipe. The final product lives up to the legend- the rounds of lamb really do melt in your mouth like butter.

Very well patronized

It took us a long time to get a table and even longer for the food to arrive. They said it was because we had ordered too many different types of kabobs. But is was worth the with. Succullent kabobs with hot parathas. The kids loved their butter hans. The biryani was a bit spicy and we have had... read more

Great north Indian food. However, the food is a little blander than traditional Indian cuisine, better suited for Western Palates.All good food generally

The restaurant has pretty decor. It is very tiny and noisy but the service is efficient and the food is outstanding.

It is so disappointing to go to an Indian restaurant and the flavor of the food is dumbed down -- or tamed -- for American tastes. Not so here! If you can't stand the heat, do not eat at Bhatti . . . go elsewhere.

Having read good things about this Indian restaurant we decided to give it a go on our first night in New York as it was very close to the hotel and we were shattered. From the outside it was obviously packed which was encouraging. We walked in and asked for a table for three and were told rather abruptly to... More

Bhatti Indian Grill, part of NYC's 'Curry Hill' at Lex and 27th Street, is a delightful find. Small with tight but comfortable seating. Introduced to me by Indian colleagues because of its unlimited weekday lunch special ($12), offered in both vegetarian and non-vegetarian versions. Place was full at lunch time, mix of Westerners and Indians. The owner sets the lunch... More

We were regulars at this restaurant, big fans of their food and service. We would never go to any other North Indian restaurants in the area. We live an hour from the city but would especially make trips only to eat at our favorite Bhatti. But our last couple times we were so disappointed by the food, service and the... More
