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

Had dinner here - food was tasty, service good, comfortable seating - we were a party of five and enjoyed being able to sit at a round table. Atmosphere was pleasant even though the restaurant was very crowded. Prices were reasonable for NYC; however upon receiving the check we had neglected to notice the small print at the bottom of...

A great restaurant! Splendid food and great service. The food is served in the traditional Indian manner with pots on the table and freshly cooked rize as a side order. The restaurant has a beautiful interior decoration which sets you in the native mood right from the start. A place to be recommended!

This restaurant is a must for spicy food lovers! We both ate tandoori and the taste of each very different dish was subtle and sublime. The popadoms we had for starters were crisp and the dips different, hot and spicy. The service was impeccable, attentive but not overbearing and the tables were dressed in linen cloths, so pleasant to eat... More
