Bhatti Indian Grill serves authentic Indian Food. There are lot of options for both vegetarians and non vegetarians. Their desserts are good too. They serve you well, and you don't have to wait long for your order.

I visited New York and went to this restaurant and found it to be very good for the Indian food. I usually go to Lexington Ave every time when I come to New York but this place is definitely a good one. I tried Gilauti Kawab which was super super moist and melting in mouth. I also tried Dum Gosht... More

A quick but very fulfilling late night bite. This is a small but super busy North Indian place nestled on the corner of Lexington and 28th next to a ton of other Indian places. I picked this one over others as frankly it just looked a little nicer and I really fancied Kebabs which this place seemed to specialize in.... More

One of the best Indian restaurants ever. We went there for lunch and were offered lunch specials. Little did we know it comes in 10 dishes, each excellent on its own and could easily be a lunch on its own. Make sure you come on an empty stomach. Excellent, delicious and generously portioned. While we were dining, there were lots... More

Unpretentious neighbourhood Authentic Indian restaurant. Must try the tandoori chicken kebabs and the gilauti is truly melt in the mouth stuff. Butter chicken was as good as if not better than anything in India. Friendly staff.

Delicious food. Really impressed with the veggie options and it tasted great. Only thing was the service was so fast it didn't allow for much of a dining experience. We were paying the bill within about 30mins of arriving and felt that we had to leave due to the queue of people waiting for a table even though we were... More

Food was good overall. Went as a group of 6 without a reservation and were able to be seated. The space is small and cramped, and the bathroom is around a tight corner where you're practically in the kitchen. The service was decent overall, but we ordered only vegetarian food and one dish that was served was chicken, which we... More

Basic indian fare good. Veg platter was a mish mash with fried tofu type cheese, tasteless mushroom stuffed with some green tasteless filling, a potato stuffed with something bland. This was a very strange dish.

Bhatti is an ultra-authentic north Indian restaurant in the heart of New York City that's refined yet affordable, upscale and still comfortable. Take your pick from a variety of kebabs and curries and watch as our master chefs work their magic at the Bhatti.

Bhatti Indian Grill is Indian food like you've never tasted-the flavors are unique, harmonious on the palate, a lot less of the overwhelming heat that's associated with Indian cuisine and something all together far more sophisticated. The recipes are rare finds even in India, where they're special treats sought out from master chefs. Bhatti is a real gourmand's restaurant-seriously made food with top-notch, educated service to do it justice.

Bhatti's mastermind Gaurav Anand had early opportunities to train and partner with India's master chefs and run a culinary empire in his home country. But a spark that ignited on his first trip to the Big Apple proved that Anand would have to act on even bigger aspirations. It was with this passion and his extensive knowledge of North Indian cuisine that he decided to open Bhatti Indian Grill in August 2009. Anand is also owner of the newly opened Moti Mahal Delux in Manhattan's Upper East Side.

Kebabs are the specialty of the house and they're anything but typical. The signature dish is Gilauti Kebab, which is steeped in history, originating in the province of Lucknow as a royal meal for a king who had lost his teeth in old age. Unwilling to let go of his dignity (and thereby his ability to eat meat), the king turned to the greatest kebab maker in the land, who devised a special marinade incorporating 160 spices resulting in a melt-in-your-mouth texture that didn't require any chewing. Anand is one of the few chefs to have learned the secrets to the recipe. The final product lives up to the legend- the rounds of lamb really do melt in your mouth like butter.
