Diner Reviews
  • "The food was good, moderately priced and the service was decent. I was looking for a new go-to indian restaurant that I can visit whenever I am craving some dal or paratha, and I think I found it. This place was simple and perfect. The pumpkin sabji was great."

  • "I know Indian good and this was not good at all! The roties came out cold only three people working there. Food was bland can't believe New York Times and all gave this a good rating."

  • "I was in town visiting my parents over the weekend. I wanted to have Indian food , but something different sort of Indian Food. Bhojan is just exactly that. Bhoajn provides quality Indian Authentic food with friendly service and an awesome location. Its just the right fit for either family or friends over Lunch/Brunch."

  • "The eggplant app. and the Pumpkin Entree Win for the being delicious. The cauliflower app and the vegetable vindaloo were not great. Cauliflower was too sweet, jelly like and not enough spice and vindaloo was overly spicy and sauce to thin. Eggplant chips and pumpkin entree win the prize for being very good."

  • "Bhojan is a wonderful contemporary Indian bistro with traditional food in a more sophisticated ambiance. Totally delicious and less greasy than many of the places in the neighborhood---everything we had was exceptional."

  • "Small restaurant, tastefully decorated. They offer nice southern Indian food including thali that is reasonably priced. The food is good, but nothing stands out especially. The wait staff was eager to serve, but had trouble explaining what some of the dishes were."

  • "Very, very good thalis. Beautiful restaurant. Excellent choice for vegans."

  • "Great food and good service. I just thought it was odd that a waiter on senior person scraped leftover food from one plate onto another before taking it away at the table."

  • "We were interested in Bhojan as the owners also run Chola uptown and we love it there. The restaurant decor was very modern and fun and the noise level just right. The menu was extensive so we were spoiled for choice. Luckily, we were with some Indian friends who ordered for the table so we were able to enjoy a selection of dishes and a thali to share. The flavors were very nice and, at least for me, a little went a long way as I left the place satiated. The only slight complaint was that (at least in the dishes we ate) there was very little substance to the dishes and just lots of sauce. All in all an enjoyable evening."

  • "Living in nj, I am Used to Small portions, but not when it comes to Indian food and casual dining. The vegetable korma was more cream and sauce then vegetables. The rice and chapatti had no seasoning or flavor. We also got off to the wrong start with the server as we requested to sit elsewhere and were denied, even though the place was half empty. We made the trip and it definitely was not worth it."

  • "Very tranquil and nicely decorated restaurant, but medium spicy is way too hot!!!"

  • "We had a groupon, so it was more of a prix fix menu. The food was good, a bit spicy for us, but overall we enjoyed our meal."

  • "I come to Bhojan when I can even though I don't live in New York. In general, the appetizers/small plates are better than what most people know as the more traditional Indian restaurant entrees. Try the Pau Bhaji, Kachori Chaat and Gobi Karkare for sure. If you're in the mood for something more substantial, try a paratha. I ate here on a Friday night, and my wife, who ate here recently on a Wednesday night said the food was def a bit better then. Maybe it's the Fri night rush, or maybe it was a bit of an off day. Nonetheless, the food was tasty enough that I'd recommend it to friends."

  • "Picked this out of a concentrated area of vegetarian Indian options on Lex Av based on others' ratings and the extensive menu. We were not disappointed. Food was great, portions were generous and the customer service could not have been nicer. Great place!"

  • "I found Bhojan in New York magazine under the vegetarian section because of a friend of mine is a veggie-only person. This place was so good, i brought my husband back who happens to be a meat and potatoes kinda guy and he loved it. he was amazed at how full you get from only veggies and rice! I recently went to Bhojan for my friend's baby shower and there were 8 of us and the staff was awesome. they let us stay even long after we finished the food. I'd do back to this place again and again."

  • "Food is interesting and spicy! I expected bold and spicy flavors but in the vegan Thali dish that includes appetizer, entree, and dessert almost every part of it was spicy. There was no escaping it except for the rice and dessert! We were all sweating from the heat of the restaurant and the heat from the food. It was new and interesting so we enjoyed trying something new but next time I think we might try a different Indian restaurant (considering there are probably 3 or 4 more in a 1-block radius of this place) and see what they are like. Oh and their drink menu is slightly lacking. But all in all we had a good time and enjoyed trying northwestern Indian food. The atmosphere was also nice."

  • "Delicious and reasonably-priced vegetarian thali takes the fuss out of ordering lunch. We asked for a quiet table for a business lunch and the staff did their best to accommodate us, given that the room is not inherently quiet. All was well until a group of women with babies (one of them howling) was seated next to us, but we were just about ready to leave by then, so no harm was done. I've had family dinners on previous occasions at Bhojan. The food has been excellent and the service attentive, and on those occasions noise was not an issue."

  • "My friend and I went to Bhojan on a Saturday night at 6:45 p.m. with a reservation. It was nearly empty when we walked in and 100% packed when we left around 8 or 8:30 p.m. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. I'm vegan and they had a great assortment of choices. I also don't eat flour or sugar and the wait staff deftly helped me navigate the menu. The ambiance was calming and unusual. The interior is smaller than it looks in the pictures online; it's quite cozy. I highly recommend it!"

  • "Don't bother... There are MANY (and better) Indian options around there; the only reason I went there was because it was the only option open at 4pm."

  • "The food was very good and came out quickly for lunch. The Tali was delicious and the cauliflour was really great. The two issues I had was on my reservation I requested a larger table for two and I had gotten one of the smaller tables and the place was empty. The other was one of the items I ordered did not arrive at the table and I think it was a language difference, but the food that came out was plenty and delicious. I would definitely go again and recommend it."

  • "I went to Bhojan with my best friend after purchasing a groupon. We had recently become vegetarians and also shared a love of Indian food, so we decided to give it a try. We LOVED it. The food was incredibly filling and satisfying and we enjoyed the ambience immensely. I would also like to note that the service was incredible even though we only had a groupon. (I've noticed some places lack in service when serving groupon patrons)"

  • "I came out to this place because of a Groupon and my boyfriend and I recently becoming vegetarians, and I will definitely go back. We got the Punjabi Thali which was really rich and delicious. I'm super sensitive to spicy foods, but nothing that I ate was aggressively spicy -- it was just super flavorful."

  • "This was my first visit to this restaurant and was very happy with everything (food, ambiance, service). Waitress was very attentive without being intrusive. My friend & I were there for nearly 3 hrs. (we had a lot of catching up to do!), and were never bothered by the staff. Also a lovely restaurant as far as ambiance goes. I highly recommend this to everyone, whether you're vegetarian or not."

  • "Although the restaurant is listed online as being open till midnight and allowed us to make a 10pm reservation for 10 people, at 10:15 they told us they were closing and we needed to go. It was a very awkward, unsatisfactory experience."

  • "Waitresses are mostly curt and unobliging, the hostess is especially in-your-face rude. Food's not bad, but being greeted by the rude hostess soon as you enter, dampens the experience."

  • "We went to Bhojan on a friend's recommendation and we are glad we did. We made a reservation and were seated right away. Quarters are kinda close in the back, but we avoided the front since it was 25 degress out. I was a little concerned at first given there isn't really a wine list. They only carry one brand and the list says: Cabernet, Merlot, Chardonay, etc. When I asked about the wine, it was not clear at first.....but, no worries, we selected the Cab, it was very nice and were were satisfied. We choose a selection of appetizers - all were very good. Special mention was the Bhel, which is not normally something I enjoy, but it was great. Overall good experience. Good service. Excellent food. We will go back next time."

  • "I was excited about this place since it has a vegan menu. However, I was less excited when I saw that yogurt was in one of the dishes on the vegan menu, which indicates that they clearly do not know what Vegan means. We ordered two dishes shared between us - the Aloo Gobi was AMAZING, but the Daal was very bland and left a lot to be desired which was very surprising (even at sub-par Indian restaurants the daal is usually a safe choice). The prices are normal but the portion sizes seem very small. The service was pretty terrible - our waitress seemed pretty grumpy and unfriendly. She never checked on us and never bothered to even refill our water."
