“Great Indian vegetarian food”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

This is a small restaurant with Indian vegetarian food. Ask for a set menu and you will be delighted at the spices and selection of food. Wonderful!

“Fabulous Thalis”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

I am a big fan of vegetarian food and this place has a number of really decicious dishes. I love the Thalis because you can sample all sorts of wonderful things without going home too stuffed.
The waiters are kind and attentive and the food is very reasonable priced.

“A taste of nice, reasonably priced Indian food”
Reviewed October 11, 2012 via mobile

My wife and I discovered this restaurant accidentally on our last day in NY. I wish we has spotted this place earlier! It is a fully vegetarian restaurant, but please do not be put off by that! It is an opportunity to taste how well food can be put together without necessarily requiring meat. We had a mutter paneer and another dish that I cannot remember now. But both were delicious. The ambiance was nice and the staff were attentive but not overbearing. I would definitely recommend this to any of my friends who visit the big apple.
