A combination of a nice environment, nice people and great food. Has tasted the samosas and chana masala. The restaurant has vegan and vegetarian alternatives. The food is tasty! Come and see for yourself!!

The food was delicious. Service was attentive. As vegetarians there were many excellent choices for us. A special shout out to Nisar, the restaurant manager, who made us feel very comfortable

Tried their new Thali today, and it was just not beautifully presented but was delicious to eat! The Manager Mr Nisar was very helpful and courteous.

I arrived solo for dinner at this restaurant, which had been recommended by a friend. I was lucky enough to get Monji as my server. He made me feel completely at ease, and quickly recommended a starter and main that worked for someone dining alone....I’d never had either Spinach Chaat or Tellicherri Pepper Chicken. Both were delicious. The appetizer was a light tasting deep fried spinach. The chicken had the perfect amount of spice. It was a memorable experience. Highly recommend.More

The great reviews of this place were not reflected in our experience. The environment is OK, but is looking a bit old and tired- the outside appearance of the place being reflected in the interior decor. The menu is limited. The food quality is OK,...but it's really nothing special. Service was good. The prices are high. It's $9 for a small beer! Overall, an OK restaurant. There are better places close by.More

The service from Falak was outstanding especially considering it was a birthday dinner She made great food suggestions which we would highly recommend. The spinach chaat appetizer was unique and delicious. The Dhaniwal Korma was also unique and that sauce was fantastic. Lastly, the Chicken...Tikka Masala was the best we have had anywhere. Thank you to the owners as well who also wished my wife a happy birthday. It was a great meal and experience!More

This review is for the West side location. Great decor and vibe!!! Lunch pre-fixe was just ok. The chicken kebab and naan were drenched in butter. The lamb - Rogan josh - was weird…hard, dry pieces of meat that didn’t taste like lamb but overcooked...beef within a few tender, beautifully prepared lamb pieces. I’d try it again for the biryani or tandoori options.More

It would be easy to walk by this restaurant as there is very little signage. We went into the restaurant on a Sunday evening and was surprised it was quite busy but we did manage to get a table. The service was friendly and efficient....We ordered a starter and a couple of main courses (which came with rice) and a naan bread. However our starter was not delivered. When we questioned this the waitress was very apologetic and ended up giving us a complimentary dessert. This was very much appreciated. Our main course was delicious and we would recommend this restaurant.More

What a terrific restaurant! Large, varied menu. Our congenial waiter described the evening’s specials accurately and expressively, helping us choose a delicious meal which was perfect for us. He steered us away from ordering too much food, and toward the perfect, but very reasonable, wine...to accompany it. A tasty cocktail of vodka, rose water, pomegranate juice, grapefruit juice and crushed cloves got us off to the right start. Two drinks, a bottle of Cabernet, a starter, onion bread, a main, one dessert—all told, our tab before tax and tip was $130–a steal! Our second visit, and we will be back.More

Visiting NYC with family and not familiar with Indian food so this was a new experience for my husband and I. Our son & daughter-in-law recommended this restaurant and made a reservation - good thing because it was very busy! The staff were very helpful...explaining the various dishes. Our water glasses were constantly refilled. The food was delicious. I had the Symphony Chicken Tikka Salad (mild as I can't handle spicy) & my husband had the Sweet & Sour Chicken (he prefers Chinese!!). There were so many options on the menu that our grandsons (10 & 13) took ages choosing - one had Lamb Chops & the other Ginger Chicken with Broccoli. Portions were ample and everyone enjoyed their meals. Our son & his wife believed it was best Indian food they had had in quite some time!More

Absolutely superb. I had the butternut squash soup and shrimp patia which were both very flavorful. My husband had a chicken lollipop appetizer and a lamb curry. We shared a garlic naan. The food was only enhanced by our amazing host, Nasir. It was such...an unexpected treat to find. We will be back soon!More
