Fear the Biryani! Love the Goat Vindaloo.

Ordered delivery via SEAMLESS and the food arrived promptly. Stapled to the bag of food is a brochure for Ghandi Café, with three customer testimonials. Two of the testimonials state that Ghandi Café but that the Biryani is not very good. Well, having ordered the Biryani, I burst out laughing... read more

Amazing Indian food. Haven't had it this good since London. Fresh papadum with mango chutney and cucumber yoghurt, goat vindaloo, and chicken chili. Attentive service. Complimentary rice pudding and milk masala tea to end a wonderful dinner. Will definitely go back.

We had lunch here and for what we paid it was really good food. We had the biryani beef and the chicken as well. The chicken was much better than the beef - but then again the beef does not really belong in the Indian kitchen. The service was fine as well as the food

This little cozy indian restaurant keeps meeting the highest expectations when you are in the mood of good indian food. The stuff is friendly and professional. Always smiling. The food is delicious and very well cooked. The atmosphere is sophisticated but simple.

Simply bad. As you can see from my other reviews I've traveled in India a lot. There are some restaurants that have pretty good Indian food, some of almost the same quality that you find in India, others trying hard. This restaurant doesn't even try. I went there with a group of people and sampled several dishes. Some of the... More

One thing about traveling extensively is you never have to do the same thing twice. Much less eat at the same restaurant. But over the dozens of visits to New York, my wife and I never miss this Indian restaurant. In my opinion, it's better than the food you get in India itself, and we've eaten there many times, too....

Disappointing meal. I eat and cook Indian food and this was not nice. Maybe it was what I chose. I found the rice oily, the pudding not to my taste, and the tea insipid.

YUM! Come here if you want authentic Indian food, must not go anywhere else. It's a pretty small place so try to come in small groups. The vindaloo, tikka masala, garlic nan, crispy flat bread, mango lassi drink and basmati rice are the bomb!! At the end of your meal, they give you complimentary tea, dessert and candied fennel seeds.... More

I didn't really go to New York expecting a curry but this place came recommened from an Indian-loving-curry- friend of mine. The food was certainly delicious and plentiful (I couldn't finish it off). The service on the other hand was poor. I felt that both the gentlemen waiting tables were quite short and abrupt with me. When I enquired about... More

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
