“Just Manageable Indian Food”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Jackson Dinner is serving Indian cuisine at two places in Manhattan, New York: One is at 72 , University Place and the other (Affiliate Location ) at 74th street. We went to visit Union squire, and decided to have dinner at a nearby location, so went to their Univ.Place location. Buffet Lunch and Take Out is very popular; but being Friday night it was full of people and we had to wait for about 15 minutes to get a table. It was near their kitchen, separated by a glass partition, and we could see our order being prepared by the chef.

Their Bar offers special Martini, and most people prefer it. Also Indian branded beer was in demand. They serve American, German, and English beer as well as many types cocktails.

The taste of food was just Manageable, Veg as well as non-veg. The price range is normal. As the number of Indian Food Restaurants is limited, you have a limited choice as well.

“Great food!”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Came here to the lunch buffet. Good selection of foods at a great price. They even have a made-to-order crepe.

“Strange name for an Indian restaurant.”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

This place is an Indian restaurant. I only ate there once but the food was good. More importantly, some of the Indian people I know like it as well so you know the food must be good. It is not expensive. It's not easy to find parking but the subway is nearby. There are lots of Indian'Pakistani shops to explore nearby as well. This is a nice place to take the family.

“Eat in now out”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Eat in, the eggs are great ! I don't recommend delivery as the last two times we ordered we did not get the correct items. The service is prompt and the renovations make for a great atmosphere.

“Typical Indian Buffet”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Shared a lunch with 4 colleagues at the 'diner', that is really a restaurant. "B" grade health department rating posted at the door gave us pause, but after surveying the seating area and the buffet line, we decided to stay. There was a good variety of food that permitted the group to select various meats, food preparation methods and spice level to everyone's palate. Service was excellent and staff was very friendly and hospitable.
