Tasty Curry!!

We fancied a curry and did some research on Indian restaurants in the Columbus Circle area - Sapphire India Cuisine came up well in the reviews and it wasn't to disappoint. The restaurant has a white tablecloth approach but is still very relaxed. The place is quite big but has quite a warm feel to... read more

Wonderfully tasty food that you can get at varying levels of spicy. Conveniently located near Columbus Circle.

As usual, dining at Sapphire is a wonderful experience. The food is delicious (and I am picky about Indian food), the service efficient and staff courteous. And the price point is good, especially the lunch buffet for under $20.

This place has an excellent buffet on Saturdays between 12 and 2 and it was my lucky day to find it after work one Saturday. I have been coming here for a few years and the service is always excellent. As stated in my title, the mango lassi is the best I've had in New York and the food is... More

Hard to find a good Indian place in Midtown. Sapphire is average. Service is generally Okay. Lamb byriani is good. Order it spicy.

Amazing food, not the cheapest but excellent quality. We come from the UK and some people have mentioned the attitude of the staff but Indian gentlemen in the UK do tend to have an aloof attitude! Will definitely go there again before we leave :)

We were taken here by an Indian citizen who thought it would be a good place to show off Indian Cuisine. He was wrong as the food was only OK. Service was good and the setting was very impressive but it is really the food you are going for so the Sapphire only gets an "Average" rating from us for... More

Delicious, well prepared Indian food close to Lincoln Center. This is not your standard north Indian slop - the vegetables were very fresh, and prepared with subtle, nuanced spices. They will make the food as hot or as mild as you want, and even those who don't like "spicy" food will be pleasantly surprised. My sole complaint is the extra... More

We went with a family group after a performance at Lincoln Center. They had a big round table for us--always better than a long one for a group--and very comfortable chairs. Everything we ordered was delicious. I can particularly recommend the Lahsuni Gobi (fried cauliflower) and the lamb Jardaloo (Persian style with apricots), but nothing was bad, or even mediocre....

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
