This place is a tru delight. All the dishes we tried were really good and authentic. They also have a very nice and "modern" vibe to the place. Overall, highly recommended (and do make a reservation!)

I went to Malai Marke for lunch during my New York stay. The restaurant is a bit of a narrow aisle, but in a modern make up. I liked it. The service was very attentive, but there were only a couple of tables busy... The...More

Each of us had the $13 lunch special—lamb, shrimp, chicken, and chickpea. Each dish was excellent (I tried all of them, and everyone liked his own dish too). Sauces were tasty and the main ingredients (lamb, shrimp, chicken, and chickpeas) were very good. Bread was...More

Went for lunch on a blazingly hot day when the a/c was apparently off and the place was empty. But it had an A rating and lots of good reviews, so we took a chance. Lots of selections on the lunch (including vegetarian, chicken, lamb...More
