I came in here at lunch time to see their menu and veggie options. As soon as the waiter saw that I was interested in the lunch special, he pushed me aside and helped the next few customers to their tables before coming back to answer my questions. The food was all right but didn't make up for the bad... More

Lunch time Indian buffet is well prepared with a number of choices. Service was fine ( it is a buffet, after all...). It is a bit pricey compared to other Indian Buffet places, but considering the number of people there on a Thursday afternoon, it seems to be a pretty popular place.

We have unfortunately dined here more than once due to friends apparent love of several dishes. THe haughty attitude of serves make this place a poor destination of anyone who likes to dine casually and enjoy there meals. The waiters were surly and rude and certainly not accurate in completing their tasks. Never again, even for friends would I cross... More

We visited this place for the second time in a year. The first time we were with friends and the long wait was filled with chatter. This time the service really "sucked". They have an extremely poor attitude and they will not get my money ever again. the manager should be brought to task at the shoddy manner in which... More

I have been to many Indian restaurants, and this one certainly ranks high on my list. The food was good and the service excellent.

Generally we avoid restaurants in crowded, touristy locations because they tend to be overpriced and don't care about the customers that much. But when you're starving, you don't have a choice. So we stopped in here and were pleasantly surprised with the food. The service was OK...not friendly, but efficient and professional. We knew about the dishes and what to... More

Our party of 10 (for lunch--off the menu) came from about 4 states...and they set us a lovely table off in a corner by ourselves at the front of the restaurant. Even without writing it down, our waiter got all our orders correct for all courses...and the food! I would eat eggplant every day (and that's saying something) if it... More

A dear friend and I ate here one evening recently. Although we wanted dinner we also wanted to spend time visiting. Sapphire was perfect. The restaurant is lovely with crisp linen tablecloths and gorgeous copper serving pieces. We were there on a Monday evening and the restaurant was consistently busy but not overwhelmed. The staff was attentive but very patient... More

I met family at this West Side standby near Lincoln Center for their lunch buffet, which is well known among neighborhood denizens. It is plentiful, tasteful and well varied. There are many vegetarian and gluten free options, and the lamb and chicken entrees are excellent. It's a great meal deal before a matinee or an evening performance at the nearby... More

I know a thing or two about authentic Indian restaurants and food since I've travelled there, and this place is up there with the best of them in India itself. Even the decor is reminiscent of Rajastan; it didn't take much imagination to see myself back in Agra Fort. Since I like spicy food I ordered the spicy lamb with... More
