“Very warm atmosphere, mediocre food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Frankly that headline says it all. It has a cozy, brick interior which is really warm and lovely. The food was fine, but a bit disappointing.

“first rate Indian food in Irvington NY and gluten free friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

There is authentic Indian food at the waterfront in Irvington, NY. It has been a favorite go to place for dinner for many years and always pleases. Tonight was the first time I had a tiny complaint with the lentil chips that they always serve when you first sit down. It was not up to the usual wonderful quality, but was burnt and dry. This is the first complaint I have ever had in the many years we have eaten there. The food is just so delicious and done to order exactly as you request. For people with gluten intolerance I recommend the tandoor chicken, the lamb chops, the spinach with cheese, the coconut shrimp, mango ice cream and the rice pudding. Check with the staff when ordering to make sure that the chef takes proper precautions and you should have a wonderful meal along with everyone else who will dine divinely. The wait staff seeks to please. You do have at times to deal with some language issues as the staff is authentically Indian along with the food. I have checked with friends born in India who say the food is totally authentic, not reworked to please the American palate. In addition to the favorite foods that can easily be prepared gluten free, the dishes that my non gluten sensitive dining partners always return to are the Lamb Curry Tiki, and the vegetable appetizer for two that feeds three easily and could easily be a main dish. We all keep going back to the offerings named while attempting to try some others along the way. I can still taste that mango ice cream and rice pudding that we shared tonight and all I can say is I can't wait to go back for more.

There is a view of the Hudson from some of the seats by the windows facing west and at sunset it is really nice. Basically, this is a cozy, friendly, neighborhood place that brings the taste of the exotic to Irvington and that is simply terrific.

“Delish”

Consistently good food and service. The Chicken Tikka Masala and Chana Masala are awesome and the potato samosas are great.
