Minar serves decent Indian food. The highlight would be the location w.r.t. Times Square & extremely friendly staff.

I will never return. Nor should you. The people who work and run this place relentlessly don't care. Nor should you. The food is mediocre at best. Service is demeaning. Is rather go around the corner or down the block for a more authentic experience.
