Tulsi opened a couple of years ago in a slightly out of the way midtown location, and it is a wonderful and welcome addition to the neighborhood. The dining room is lovely, with curtained tent-like tables and a refined decor. The food is consistently inventive--very different from the usual Indian fare. The chef uses novel combinations of spices to create... More

We had the house speciality, the lamb chops out of the tandoori. They were nice spicy and tender, the slightly burnt bones added to the taste. I liked the street Food inspried Starters too and of course the speciality Drinks. Can recommend the place for a upscale Indian meal.

We had heard about the restaurant from a good friend of our's and based on it we made reservations. Food was excellent, chef came and explained different dishes to us and answered all our questions and based on it we ordered our food. Food was delicious and waiters were knowledgeable and prompt in serving food. We are planning to go... More

I really don't know where to start! My husband and I stumbled across this little gem accidentally and the place hadn't yet opened for the evening, but the staff greeted us anyway and welcomed us in the bar area to start with our drinks. We were given our drinks straight away and weren't even waiting long to be seated in... More

Food was excellent. The starters were the best- tandoori mushrooms and cauliflower manchurian. The mains were also good we had the spinach kofta and butter paneer with naan and rice. The disappointment was the vegetable curry dish that was overpowered with a coconut flavor. Moving on to desserts the pistachio kulfi was exceptional with the chocolate samosa being ok. Overall...

Last evening I dined at Tulsi on the request of my son. Generally my taste buds are not into Indian food but what a surprise. We started with the samosas filled with spinach, potato, and parmigiana. For my main course I had the lamb chops. Wonderful taste, cooked to perfection, and I admit I enjoyed it right down to each... More

My husband and I are big fans of Devi, in Chelsea, and having heard that Tulsi (in the same family) was great too, booked it for a birthday dinner. The food was very good, if maybe not as memorable as at Devi -- highlights were the Goan seafood curry and a very tasty amuse bouche. Service was great, extremely attentive... More

The ambiance of this restaurant is both soothing and sophisticated. While many Indian restaurants tend to be ornate and over the top in decor, the translucent curtains, light colors on the walls and selective use of art objects, signaled a more delicate and subtle approach-which carries over into the food. The wait staff is especially gracious. The menus-and they provide... More

Perfectly blended Indian cuisine with Indian environmental feel without not ignoring the ultra urban New York city feel. Food + Service + Cost + Location = Super Restaurant Design = The Best ( home connection) A dining place added to my NYC's must-visit list.
