“One of my favorite Indian food restaurants”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2011

I love the food here. The restaurant has what could possibly be called a secret garden in the back which is an absolute treat in NYC. The food is a bit pricey but well worth it. The service is great but not particularly friendly. Attentive but not super friendly.
I would recommend Surya to anyone looking for a clean Indian restaurant with delicious food.

“Subtle spicing, elegant atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2011

We had crab cake and veg samosa appetizers. Crab cake had wondeful blend of spices and pleasing, unusual flavors. Samosa could have used a touch of hotness, but was still delicious. Main dish was grouper in a wonderful spicy sauce (Chennai, maybe?) Water glasses were too small for my teenaged son. Service was attentive but unobtrusive, atmosphere was calm and lovely with white table cloths. Waiters wear great saffron collored shirts.

“Underwhelmed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2008

A lively neighborhood spot for Indian food with warm colors and staff. Usually service is very good, but on a recent Saturday night service was exceedingly slow and food sub-par with watery orange sauces and rubbery chicken. Worth another try on another night.
