A perfect resturant offering Gujarati home style food. What we enjoy the most here is the Gujarati snacks.

Perfect place to enjoy Gujrati home style food. The devote andante cd is in an ideal location in busy manhatten location. The decore is superb. Just loved it. We have been here with family and friends on several occasions.

As a gujarati, I can say this is one of the few restaurants that actually reflects the food we eat at home. Just be aware of the quantity, its a lot of food and feels like a waste so I dont indulge in this too often because I can only eat so much. The decor is quite nice, and the... More

This is a Gujarati style Indian cuisine restaurant. The interior décor is different with picture painted walls, a mock well to draw water and tables in a rural cabin style. Pleasing to the eye. Service was good and waiters were efficient and helpful, offering suggestion in spice levels and such. Food was tasty and delivered without delay. Overall it was... More

A very different type of all you can eat. Not a Buffett . Excellent assortment of western Indian dishes brought to you. Ask and you will get as much as you can eat.highly recommended gor families. Individual cubicles add to privacy and comfort. Uniformed waitresses in Indian costumes add authenticity to the dining atmodphere

We came to Vatan as a party of nine who love vegetarian Indian food. The table was gracious and quiet- the portions more than ample-(only a few of us requested more and it was brought quickly). We loved some of the dishes and liked others but being brought a selection was fun and easy. We were each served an enormous... More

As I entered Vatan Restaurant in NYC for the first time, I was very impressed with the ambience of an Indian village. A lady dressed in traditional Indian attire explained about their food and served us dinner. I recommend visiting this restaurant when you are really hungry. Because they serve a lot of delicious food in a three course meal.... More

Food is served "Thali" style, meaning you get several small portions of a several foods. They serve a 3 course meal thali style, so there is no choice of what you get. It turns out to be a huge meal. If you like Indian food you will love it. The service was very good and the decor was fun. If... More
