    We have several Indian restaurants in the neighborhood but Aangan tops them all. You must try the Bhel in phyllo dough cups app. It's terrific.

    I plan to make Aangan my go-to when I'm craving Indian food. They offer a bit more than the standard Punjabi Indian-American restaurant fare in terms of variety, and both the goat bhuna and lamb nilgiri were superbly executed. I couldn't have asked for anything more on a dreary NYC evening.

    Everything about our experience at Aangan was outstanding! The food was succulent! The staff was kind, efficient, and attentive without being overbearing. The picture on the website doesn't do it justice. It's a very charming atmosphere! When we arrived, the restaurant was delightfully quiet, but later a large family came in and it got quite noisy. We didn't mind too much though, because we could see that the family was having a wonderful time. Hence my assessment that this restaurant is good for groups, special occasions and is kid friendly. They left after awhile and it was quiet again. But the food and the wine were superb, and were the main feature! Bravo, Aangan! We'll be back!

    I have had lunch here many times. They open at noon, when there are as yet few customers, so the service was prompt. I had a very simple appetiser: just crispy cauliflower in a spicy tomato sauce, but it was delicious; then chicken jalfrezi, an ample serving and likewise very good; plus mango juice to drink. Perhaps being a familiar customer helped, but I think that they are just naturally friendly: all others who arrived were similarly made welcome.

    My friend and I tried the prix fixe dinner. It is a good amount of food and includes a glass of wine or beer. The salmon tandoori was fabulous and the lamb tandoori was also fab. It was a quiet Sunday night in early June and it was a nice little getaway.

    We come to Aangan frequently, but this is the first time we've had lunch. Aangan serves lunch on a thali plate, several small dishes, rice, naan & dessert. We all had seafood. My wife & friend had two kinds of shrimp -- I had fish curry & tandoori shrimp. Everything was very good. I do feel the price is too high for the amount of food, but the quality is high & we all enjoyed it.

    This is one of our favorite Indian restaurants in the city. Flavorful, well-prepared dishes, with a good selection of entrees. The restaurant has a modest noise level in a small intimate dining area. We never feel rushed at Aangam and the linen tablecloth and napkins are a nice touch. This is a nice place to enjoy a meal with friends. price is reasonable and quality and consistency of the food is very good.

    Tried a new indian restauant in the 100s and really enjoyed ourselves. We first noticed it when we were walking by one night on the street and the ambiance looked great. Made a reservation and they kindly reserved a table near the window for us. Kind and observant staff presented our food in beautiful cooper color bowls. Everything we ordered was tasty the chicken saag, eggplant dish and potato/chickpea appetizer. Would come back again.

    Aangan is one of our favorites. We've come here a number of times. (Our only gripe is that we do find the drinks a bit pricey.) This time the Lahsooni (cauliflower), our favorite appetizer, was even better than before, because they've made the sauce less sweet and more flavorful. The Poori was perfect! My wife had her favorite Wild Sea Bass which is always great. I tried the Lamb Shanks special -- 2 large shanks, well-seasoned, in a very tasty sauce. Both our mains had a nice mix of veggies -- something you don't often find in Indian restaurants. We were too full for dessert, so of course we'll just have to go back again.

    Four of us shared an early Sunday night dinner and were delighted to be able to hear each other talk. It's a small room and maybe more noisy when full but it's such a relief not to have to yell. Food was very good,..lamb chops delicious! Samosas are 2-bite sized with a crisp, flakey and non-oily finish and our friends were happy with their lamb saag and a shrimp curry. Crab cakes, however, were ordinary and not very crabby. We did need to ask for flashlights to read the menu but they were happily supplied. I think it is a bit more expensive than most Indian restaurants but worth it.

    Ate at Aangan for the first time with a family group. The quality of the cuisine is quite high. The service is friendly. The place is pretty, but a bit overcrowded and noisy if it's full. I'd say that the spicing leans toward the overly sweet side of things. Every dish we tried was somewhat sweet, and even the hottest only mildly spicy. Shrimp in saffron curry was delicious, as was the baingen bartha. Breads were exceptional. And the cheese pakoras were really good and perfectly fried. Plan on spending $35 a head here with a beer or two and you'll be unsurprised. But in the end, that's not outrageous for very well prepared dishes with quality ingredients and solidly competent service. You can do better in NYC, but not uptown.

    We order delivery from Aangan all the time, so we thought we would like eating in the restaurant, too. The food was still good (although my samosas were strangely different from the ones I get when I order). The service was pretty bad. We had to ask to have our waters filled twice, and in the time between our appetizers and our food, two other tables who sat down after our appetizers were finished got their food and almost finished it before ours came. So in the future, we will probably stick with ordering from Aagnan instead of eating at the restaurant.

    6 of us decided to come here for dinner, they have a wide range of Indian dishes, we did the bread basket with 3 types of nann, the Aagan rice (mint rice) and I had the Tikka Masala and my fiancee had a vegetable curry dish. The portions were very good, we were more than happy to take left overs home to enjoy! Great meal, GREAT Service.

    I was introduced to Aangan for dinner by an Indian friend and everything she ordered was delicious. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The room was inviting and comfortable. I went back for lunch with another friend. Both of us are familiar with Indian cooking and we were delighted with the prix fixe menu. The large platter held seven or eight bowls plus rice and nan. Again the food was delectable, the portions generous and the service outstanding, all this at a reasonable price. I certainly will be back. Thank you, Aangan!!

The food was authentic and delicious, the service attentive and polite, and the check very reasonable. Especially given the paucity of good restaurants in the neighborhood, Aangan is a most welcome addition. Thank you very much, Aangan! I look forward to visiting again very soon.

    Though the city does not lack high-quality Indian restaurants, I often struggle to find authentic Indian food, mirroring the delicious dishes my mother makes. Although I'll never find a restaurant quite at her quality, I was delighted to find homely, wholesome food at Aangan. My Amritsari Chole (garbanzo beans in a tomato and onion gravy) had just the right amount of spice wasn't overly laden with oil. My friends all had equal success with their food. The paneer makhani (cheese in a creamy tomato sauce) wasn't too heavy, as was the lentil and soup and Malai Kebab (chicken kebabs). The breads were also excellent. The ambience is great- not too loud, perfect for dinner with family and friends- and the service extremely fast. Great find!

    I brought two friends from out of town for dinner and the food was outstanding. However, the service could have been better. It is a small place and was full but it looked like the Maitre d had to serve as our waiter and it took which to 20 minutes. Then one of the orders was incorrect (they brought us Chicken rather than the Salmon we ordered.) By the time the Salmon did arrive, we had finished all of our dinners. To be fair, they gave it to us at no charge to taste and wrap up to take with us. Throughout the entire time they were friendly and apologetic, I will definitely try this place again to see if the service is any better. The food makes it totally worth it!
