We have been going to India House for many years, and I must say that it has had its ups and downs, Right now it is up. Perhaps the owners have become aware that our tastes have changed, and they are no longer "Americanizing" their dishes. In the past, "extra hot" was middling, but now, be warned: They will cook to your specifications. Another reviewer stated that the host, possibly the owner, was not accommodating. To the contrary, we have always been treated well, with at least one of the owners coning to our table and chatting with us. Having lived in New York and London, I would say that this family run restaurant in NoHo is a most satisfactory venue for those in search splendid and diverse Indian dishes.

We ate at this restaurant once last summer. Had a nice table on their patio. Service was good and the food was interesting and well prepared. Since then, we have tried to go back 2x and each time the maitre d' (who may be the owner) refused to accommodate our preferences. Once he wanted to seat us at a cramped, tiny table, too close to the adjoining tables, and we asked for a different table. He flatly refused, even though there were plenty tables, and we left. We tried again recently and asked to be seated outside. The same maitre d' said that it would rain and he can't seat us outside (the wait for the inside would have been half an hour and it was late already). We said that we would be happy to take the risk of sitting outside (it didn't seem that it would rain), again, he flatly refused, telling us how difficult it would be for him if it started to rain. We won't be going back. It seems that it was more important to him to have things his way than to accommodate reasonable wishes and preferences of potential customers.

Wonderfully friendly multi-generational family runs this restaurant. Authentic traditional Indian cuisine as well as delicious innovative offerings. Great for the experienced or the inexperienced palate.

I have not been to India, but my Indian friends say that the food is very authentic. This is not your typical Indian dining experience, however. There are not small plates available so if you want to sample a little variety of several dishes you would need to come in a large group. Our food was very tasty, but medium heat is hotter than most people can handle...order carefully. Because the dishes were so expensive we were limited to one entree for each of us, taking some of the fun out of the experience. The service leaves something to be desired.
