I went to this restaurant by Columbus Circle and the food was amazing! I had the lamb chops, chicken korma, malai kofta, garlic naan and a cabernet sauvignon! The food was so delicious! I have recommended various friends whom have gone and enjoyed their experience as well. I returned a second time and sat at the bar and met some... More

I dined here after teaching class it next door to NYIT. The restaurant decorum is quite nice and they had a buffet lunch available. The seating was ample and the wait staff was very courteous and professional. The buffet offerings were varied and all was very tasty, which also included dessert items. I look forward to dining here again when... More

My friend and I went to the lunch buffet after watching a rehearsal of the Philharmonic Orchestra at Lincoln Center. Great selection of appetizers, main dishes and desserts. Courteous staff and good atmosphere.

I have passed by this restaurant many times, but I assumed that it was one of those sub-par, fast food, Indian restaurants that only cater to the "lunch hour" crowd. I did read the Yelp reviews, but I was skeptical of their authenticity. I finally gave in because I needed a quality, not terribly expensive restaurant that was within walking... More

Good food. We liked what we ordered. Chicken masala with rice and some other good dishes. The service is very nice and professional (even too much but it's better than none)

This is a spacious and comfortable restaurant just about a block away from Lincoln Center. It is probably the least expensive full-service restaurant you'll find in the area and is also one where you can usually just walk in without a reservation. The food is very good although not exceptional. I think the quality has gone down a bit over... More

I had the lamb vindaloo which is very good. The garlic nan is a superlative sponge to let you savor the vindaloo sauce. BTW, the Mullagatawny is first class. I'll be back when I hit Manhattan at least once. I only visit NYC for one week a year so I'm always trying new places. This place is repeatable.

First, I would have given a higher rating but had a chicken dish that was not cooked enough. When I pointed the very pink meat out to our waiter, he just shrugged his shoulders. I discovered this after sampling all the food that was gluten free.I thought he would have shown this to the manager as uncooked chicken can be... More
