“Not authentic Indian.”
Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

Not great food. The brinjal fry was reheated. The chicken vindaloo was OK and so was the service. Definitely not a go to place for Indian food in the Manhattan area.

“Some flavor missing in every dish”
Reviewed August 2, 2012 via mobile

Awful lunch buffet. Every dish has some flavor missing. Very limited selection. Bare minimum of 3 entree only.

“Dull food and 15% service charge”
Reviewed July 6, 2012 via mobile

We came for the lunch buffet. The select of different dishes was very poor, food was cold and not very tasty. They still have a long way before the could call them self a resturant. On top of all that I found in the bill a 8$ charge they applied on the buffet!!! Lunch that was supposed to be 15% out of a 43$ bill. After I asked for, the took it down from the bill.

“Disappointed, but should have known given the bad reviews”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

The only "pro" is that the food was very tasty. You would think that tasty food would equal a good rating...

Food - ordered Shrimp Kashmir and garlic naan. Both were good and tasty. The problem is that there were very few shrimp, literally 3 tiny pieces of pineapple and a couple of raisins. The dish was all sauce with little else. I said something but they did not care.

Other issues - very empty, which should have been a sign (along with the bad reviews!). The table cloth was dirty and the plastic upright thing that holds specials had smeared food all over it. For a nice sit-down restaurant (that was not busy), I expected a bit more cleanliness. When my glass of wine was brought over, the wait person had his thumb right on the top of the glass where my mouth would be. I made sure to drink from the other side of the glass.

Another person in the restaurant was unhappy with his dinner and the response by staff was eye-rolling rather than actually caring...

Based on lack of food in dishes, cleanliness and attitude of staff, I can't recommend eating here.
