We took advantage of Restaurant week and tried out Tulsi. The food was delicious. The service was impeccable. I had a drink and so did my friend and I would say the cocktails were ok but not great. I can recommend the restaurant for chicken though. It was unbelievable.

Visiting the city with my husband and we decided to give this place a try. So glad we did! Great ambiance, service, and food is delicious! Definitely order the tandoori lamb chops! Only con is that rice must be ordered separately, does not come with your meal. We will definitely return!

Tulsi was an absolute pleasure to dine at. We dined here for our first anniversary. Great location and very easy to find. Service to start, from all the staff was outstanding, and a real credit to the restaurant. They pulled out all the stops to make sure we felt comfortable. The food was absolutely brilliant, our waiter (and manager, Mohammed)... More

Found Tulsi during restaurant week and thoroughly enjoyed their prix fixe choices. I selected the potato dumpling to start (Aloo Bonda) along with the most delicious gin martini followed by the Malai Halibut. Everything was so tasty, fragrant and beautifully presented. The staff was super attentive and service was excellent.

Tasty food, Expensive though. Recently got a star(1) from Michelin. For starter, the Golouti kebab is perfect, chicken sheek kebab is well made(though would preferred it in Lamb). The Lamb chops are exquisite & the best I have ever eaten. Malvani chicken was very well made. Desserts r tasty. Overall a definite try.

The service is very good and the good is delicious. Try their lab chops! However it seemed as if it wasn't the authentic Indian cuisine; am feels as if they tweaked their recipes a bit to please a modern palate. That being said, the good was still good. Try it !

We being indians prefer to have only ind an food. Our children also prefer indian food. The hotel has good location , pleasant interiors, very well kept, neat and clean and was very hygenic too.

My wife and I were specifically looking for a top notch Indian place in the city. We decided on Tulsi after some research based on the reviews and it having the prestigious Michelin star. The experience was worth every dollar. Don't expect the traditional Indian fare. The chef here works magic to present you with Indian dishes you have to... More

Very happy to have discovered an upscale Indian restaurant in east midtown. The layout is inviting and welcoming, and the food is really tasty and beautifully presented. The service was also excellent, quick, friendly and professional. I had 2 delicious appetizers (the cauliflower and the chicken ticca), and my friend had the prix fixe menu- all her choices were delicious.... More

Tulsi features distinctive regional Indian cuisine created by Chef Hemant Mathur, critically acclaimed for his clean, distinct flavors and a master of tandoor cooking - from savory street food and breads to tantalizing vegetable specialties and fragrant curries, to signature tandoor-grilled meats and seafood. Designed for comfort, relaxation and the enjoyment of food, drinks and conversation, the 55-seat dining room and 15-seat bar/lounge reflects modern India with a nod to cultural traditions and motifs.

Guests may also enjoy a seven-course Chef's Tasting Menu (also a Chef's Vegetarian Tasting Menu) and bar snacks, as well as a thoughtful list of spice-friendly wines, handcrafted cocktails and beers. "Tulsi" (pronounced TOOL-see) means divine basil.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
