“YUM”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

I am not sure why people had difficulty finding Utsav. We found it easily from our hotel on 47th Street. The Food was great, try the non veg Thali plate a mix of many dishes for the "taster" :) The food was great, a little on the pricey side but most indian food restaurants are. Definitely try here for a nice fine dining experience.

“Great authentic Indian Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

We got this great recommendation from an employee in our hotel who was from India. We went for the buffet lunch which is served until 3pm. First impressions are important and it did not disappoint. Neatly tucked in around the corner from the written address is a little misleading but for those hungry for good Indian food it is well worth the effort. We found it to be clean, large and open with lots of light. Most importantly the food was absolutely delicious. And if you choose to question our credentials then let me say we were the only non Indians in the entire restaurant. And for a buffet it was especially good. Too bad we discovered on our last day in NYC.

Utsav on the Sixth Avenue, offers excellent Indian food in a fine ambience. Surprised to see many Americans too dining there.

Service quality was also very good.

“Great food and very accommodating restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Utsav is a great place to have some good Indian food while in NYC. They have a great selection of cuisine and if you are planning a party, they have excellent private rooms for your event. To top it off, their staff is very accommodating with your party needs. Utsav, in the Times Square area, is worth visiting while in town.

“Nice, large place, good food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

I got there from a recommendation, it has something you can't find on a lot of Manhattan restaurants: SPACE! large room, pretty good buffet food, nice environment, good to try a lot of different things (if you are a tourist, great).
