Description: Consulting chef Jonathan Lindenauer’s (Jean Georges) grand plan is perfectly executed by exec chef Edwin Riverra. The kitchen has created a changing menu of upscale French and New American dishes with Indian touches. A cool fusion of modern banquets and wood accents provide a setting for sipping Rose Martini’s or a refreshing Budina. The perfect location to mix the cosmopolitan cool of New York with the meditative calm of the Far East.

Overpriced, small portions, bad service... I don't recommend this restaurant for food. As a lounge it may be ok, but for Indian food definitely go elsewhere. You'll laugh at the $8 "Bombay fries" which are regular fries with paprika. Portions are tiny and average entrees (from a very limited menu) are $28. We were also seated at the back near the NOISY a/c unit. When we asked to move we were told all other seats were reserved but they could put us at a cocktail table in the front. We moved and noticed during our entire stay none of the other empty tables were ever filled. Go here for a drink or for the lounge aspect but definitely not to eat.

Went here with a big group of fella's for a birthday celebration, food is alright (we are a bit spoilt by having the best indian restaurants outside of India in London) and is perfectly spicy to counter balance copious amounts of beer.

service is good, Our server at dinner was in there later with his pals and even bought me a drink because our tip was good.

I was worried that we managed to get a table for 15 people at 2 days notice but they put us in the VIP section for a minimum spend per head of $40 (we did that on booze alone) However we were well chuffed when at roughly 10pm transformed into to a club with good tunes good looking people and no attitude.
