A word from Alachi Masala
Alachi Masala takes its name from the Alachi (Cardamom), a very small but extremely flavorful spice that has been used for thousands of years. We at Alachi Masala strive to bring you flavorful dishes that embody the best of Indian cuisine while at the same time recognizing that some like it hot and some like it not!Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Wonderful neighborhood restaurant. Good food, and BYOB was a bonus!"

  • "went here for a reunion dinner with 10 other friends, and had a great time! the service was wonderful, very laid-back for manhattan. the fact that you can BYOB and there's no corkage fee is practically unheard of in Manhattan, and very conducive to the occasion and our budgets. the food was not outstanding, but totally solid and came out quickly. highly recommend Alachi Masala for an inexpensive fun group dinner."

  • "I love the area that this restaurant is in. Their meat is always tender and juicy and the naan is spectacular. I also love that it is BYOB with no corking fee. It is a cheap, quiet, hidden gem. So much so that I almost don't want to write a review because I would love to keep it all to myself. My girlfriend and I go at least once a month. It is always quiet and the food is always delicious."

  • "I am new to the neighborhood and simply desired some Indian food. We walked in and simply took a chance even though it wasn't crowded. We came in relatively early and by the time we left, it was packed. The food was good, the waiters were attentive, and no one rushed you out. We came back at a later time and made a reservation since it was a Saturday night. There were larger parties. It's in the neighborhood and I will definitely come here as one of my neighborhood restaurants....good food...."

  • "We were searching for an indian in the Upper West side and thought we had won a watch with this 'Bring your own booze' number ten blocks from the hotel. We weren't expecting it to be too busy on a tuesday night at 8:30pm, and it was, as expected, very quiet. The lighting was ambient, and we made a romantic night of it, but the staff were very quiet, pleasant, but not as friendly as the other reviews had suggested. the food wasn't what we expected. it was very reasonably priced but the portions were very small. We over-ordered, a sharing starter and three curries to share. However the food wasn't particularly warm, there wasn't enough rice and two out of three curries were pretty bland and generally not great. BYOB good idea. Has potential."

  • "Great food and selections. Service wasn't lacking but could have been a little more upbeat."

  • "All on one floor, very quiet so that conversation is possible, very good and some interesting items that I've not seen elsewhere."

  • "Great restaurant! Had an awesome time and they were very attentive to our table. Plus, they didn't automatically add gratuity to our large group. Very classy."

  • "When we arrived they had no reservation for us. They appeared to not even take reservations online as the host was using a handwritten notebook. We waited for 30 mins after being told it would only be a few, so we just left. Not impressed."

  • "I think this is one of the best Indian restaurants I've been to. Excellent food. We will be back!"

  • "Good food in a nice environment. They give a choice of spice level no matter which dish you order, provide good service, and the food is above average for Indian in New York. It's not going to blow anyone away, but a good deal for the price."

  • "Interesting Menu, good was excellent. No bar so bring your own booze. No cork charge. Highly recommend the Tandori mixed grill, combination platters ( had the fish and it was delicious), desert the first one on the desert menu. Enjoy and you certainly would be impressed. Great find on the upper west side. Would definately go again. Namaste! XoV"

  • "A good BYOB Indian restaurant. The food is good but nothing out of the ordinary. The big draw is the BYOB policy for thrifty diners."
