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

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

We checked out the menu outside the restaurant the previous evening (See my review on the Caliente Cab), and promised to come back. We were extremely pleased with the atmosphere, decor and of course the food. The flock wall paper was a tounge-in-cheek (to me) throw back to 1970s Bengali restaurants in the UK, and the Arsenal and Liverpool football... More

Do not come with more than 4 people. Although we sat 7, it was not comfortable and I just felt like we were in their way. I had the Chicken Tikka Masala that I get everywhere I go and the Garlic Naan that I also always have to get. I know Tikka Masala is generally more on the sweet side... More

When visiting NYC, we like to simply wander around the village and pick a restaurant just by checking out the menu and the ambiance. We chose Ghandi Cafe because it was busy and the smell of the food from the entrance was enticing. We were not disappointed. We were greeted and seated immediately by friendly staff. We ordered traditional entrees... More

A colleague and I were just passing by, checked out their menu and stopped in for lunch. Though small and dark, it was cozy and comfortable. We got the best seats by the window/open door. The prices were very affordable ($7-$10 pp.) The place is made to look like a train car, its narrow and long (only has 1 bathroom.)... More

We have eaten lots of Indian throughout our travels and this place was just sensational. It was fitted out like the typical dodgy Indian restaurant but it was cheap (beers 3.95) and the food was just superb. And then we seemed to get dessert and tea thrown in for free. $60 (with 5 beers) and a sensational three courses and... 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.
