Had the most unpleasant dining experience. Kenny the guy who took ours order - such a misfit for hospitality industry. Unfriendly. Not warm. Kept telling me that they do not have paper menu. What if someone older walks in with no smart phone. He stood...there with his arms folded and taking orders. Not a single crack of smile nor offering input about food choice. An uninviting / judgemental from the get go. I have been to hundreds of restaurant in my life time. Today I sat and ate woody over ripped okra. UNPALATABLE!! Chewing like a cow just to suck out the flavours. As a cook, when one puts the knife through the okra when preparing it, ONE SHOULD KNOW. And Kenny’s demeanour did not help to raise the issue until the end. And he did not apologize nor offered any kind of discount!! NEVER GOING BACK!! And yet we tipped 20%!! Its called gratitude, undeserving!!More

Staff is very kind and helpful (our first visit to an Indian restaurant) Prices are very correct (first place in NYC where a good bottle of wine ‘only’ costs 40 USD). Food is delicious!

The food was awesome! Service was excellent. I was walking by and decided to stop in for dinner. A very good choice. The vindaloo was fantastic!

Bhatti Indian restaurant is located on Lexington Avenue. It’s a North Indian origin and the food is not your typical New York Prices.

We had a 30 minute wait before we were seen by a waiter. There were no offers of drinks, we had to ask for a waiter multiple times. The waiter provided us with food that we did not order and we were still charged for...this. We received no service at all throughout the entire evening. We were still required to tip; it seems that the social expectation of tipping could be a factor as to why staff did not appear invested in their customers. We noticed a number of tourists arguing with waiting staff over tip despite their lack of service.More

My family and I visited Bhatti while in NYC moving our daughter into her apartment. We requested outdoor seating but we’re seated indoors - which was fine. The restaurant is small and dark but is a very nice/ upscale Indian restaurant. Oddly we were told...upon arrival that our reservation was cancelled but since we arrived early they would seat us (we hadn’t received a cancellation notice so I’m not sure what that was about). We ordered banarsi chatt, butter chicken, paneer tikka masala, aloo gobi, garlic naan and rice which the four of us shared. The food was absolutely amazing! The spice level was good - I’d say medium level with the paneer being a bit milder. My only complaint was that they acted like they were doing us a favor letting us eat there and were definitely in a hurry to close up as we were a late seating. The food was delicious though.More

Congested, rude staff and bland food. In a sea of Indian restaurants at every corner around Times Square , it’s amazing they are still open. Very basic menu and that too was tasteless!

We were in New York and looked online for best Indian food in New York and Bhatti was highly rated. We didn’t book a table and we turned up and the place was absolutely rammed. It was my 30th birthday and they accommodated me and...got me a table for 2. The food was absolutely superb. Chicken and lamb was cooked to perfection and the prices are so so reasonable, not any dearer than going out for a curry in Edinburgh or London. Would 10000% recommend this placeMore

I ordered the lamb biryani and garlic naan. It was wonderful. Very fresh and full of flavor. It is served with a creamy yogurt sauce which helps to cut some of the heat down. Wasn't asked about a heat level when ordering which was fine....Had it been any hotter- I don't think I would've enjoyed it. The service and the bathroom left something to be desired but otherwise a great chic spot. Good value and portion size as well.More

Half cooked paneer tikkas. Sad that the Tikkas arrived uncooked, felt as if we were eating marinated paneer directly from the marination tray

Our first post-pandemic visit to NYC started off with rain, unseasonably cool weather. We searched the neighborhood for an outdoor restaurant offering food inspired by India. What fantastic luck! Bhatti offers elegant, deeply flavorful food that had us exclaiming with happiness in-between bites. Truly a...special meal in a city we love dearly.More

We had dinner at Bhatti Indian Grill …. And …. it was AWESOME!!! Their outdoor dining space was warm and very beautifully decorated. We ordered a veg and non-veg platter with a delicious variety of vegetables, paneer, aloo, and stuffed mushroom, all fired in the...tandoor. The chicken and lamb chops each with a unique marinade were savory. We also had the Dal Batti, Chicken Kadai Masala, and several other dishes with a mixed variety bread basket, rice, and raita. I was searching for a sense of normalcy, I certainly found it here. I highly recommend making a reservation to dine there, or certainly pick up food to takeout. You won’t be disappointed.More
