“Very decent Indian food in midtown”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

I had my doubts about this place when i first visited here but it turned to be quite good in terms of food quality, taste and price. The service was so so (wasn't expecting much anyway). But if you overlook that, you can end up with some nice Indian snacks, entrees and main course dishes...both vegetarian and non-vegetarian; I am pretty critical of Indian food (other cuisines too for that matter) so you can definitely give this place a try.

“Terrific find amid midtown lunch wasteland”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Cheap and good midtown lunch options which have fixed addresses are tough to come by but Indus certainly fits the bill. Under $10 for a two curry box lunch with fresh homemade chapati or naan is tough to beat. Also cheap beer if you're looking for a budget curry dinner....

“Perfect fast food”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We had the lunch special for ten dollars and were so chuffed we went back the next day for more. You get a plastic tray with rice and a choice of main (chicken / lamb / paneer vindaloo , chicken tikka masala, chick pea dhal, etc, etc) plus two sides sich as spinach, lentils or even another curry, and nan bread/salad/dips. You will be really full after it all, and it's way above a normal indian buffet for taste, temperature and service. And best of all, you'll be eating two minutes after you walk in. They also cook special dishes if you want, but you really cant beat the fast food lunch special.

“Great value and good food”
Reviewed July 28, 2011

Didn't have the buffet but ordered from the menu. Good food, good portions and great value. If you are looking for a quick bite of Indian food near Times square, this restaurant can't be beat.
