I really liked the self-service option of vegetables and toppings on my chicken bowl. The chicken bowl is an excellent value and for $8-$9. Will try their wraps the next time I visit.

The kati rolls here are delicious, affordable, reheat well -- maybe the number one NY food type I wish I could import to Philly. (Anyone selling you a kati roll who is not making the parathas fresh is should just stop.) Additionally, the staff here is amazing; they remade three rolls when my children started complaining that they were too... More

This location is open daily from 11am to 12am. The veggie roll to me is the best roll if you haven't tried any type of Indian food. If you like something more spicy you can try the spicy shrimp roll which is really good.

It was good and tasty, I would go again. Lines are better than Kati Roll. Get 2 rolls, one roll is never going to be enough unless you are a very light eater.

We gave this place 2 tries as an alternative to the Kati Roll Company. The flavors are pretty bland, and if you take them home and reheat them, you get almost a chalky feel when you eat them. Also, asked for super spicy and they weren't. Only tried chana and aloo rolls, your mileage may vary.

Kati Rolls are getting popular in NY due to their convenience, value and quality. This place has all three. I would try their lamb and chicken tikka egg rolls. I ahve not tried their bowls but heard they are good too.

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.
