If you like Indian food then you must go! we love Indian and this one did not disappointed us. The food was great, the place is beautiful and has a very friendly service. The lunch menu price is definitely worth it. Take the subway explore the grand central station and walk 2 blocks to Tulsi for lunch!

A Michelin rated restaurant living up to all expectations. A romantic and intimate atmosphere, wonderful lighting. One could read the menu and not be overexposed. After all it's true we look better with the lights dimmed, don't we, darling? I do believe we are created in the image of God to have intimate fellowship with our Creator, but admit I... More

The dining room is very attractive - public yet with discretely enough space to have private conversation. The staff is very attentive and use “best practices” in managing the table. Service is excellent. We shared an appetizer, had two entrees, rice, naan, raita, one dessert, two beers, one glass of wine with tax and tip for $160. The food preparation... More

The aromas that hit your senses as you approach this restaurant are amazing. If you fancy Indian cuisine you should eat at this restaurant. The lamb chops (they are actually lamb lolly pops i.e. the cannon of lamb) are INCREDIBLE! Whilst expensive I shall be going back here again!

You would never guess this is a Michelin star restaurant. The restaurant is small and basic and the service is what you'd expect anywhere. I liked the scallop starter. The hot sauce and crispy sticks on top added a new flavour and texture for me. The masala was nice enough but wasn't anything better than the local takeaway. I've never... More

The unlikeLy named Eric McCarthy the head chef did a fantastic job of turning out some really splendid dishes. Spices were well balanced and each dish was well defined. My bellwether of "how good is the Nan bread" receives top marks - light crisp and very tasty. The service was great, beer was cold and we all left feeling really... More

The name speaks for it and a great indian food is awaited. The service is fabulous, you may need to book a table in advance as it was full when we went. There are plenty of options with some decent starters. The prices are on the higher end but worth the visit, one person meal may go upto 50 USD.... More

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.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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.
