A word from Devi
Devi, signifying "goddess" in the Indian language, showcases the celebrated pan Indian cuisine in its modern avatar and was the first ever Indian restaurant to get a Michelin star in the United States. The team of Kunal Lamba (GM and Culinary Director) and Chef Dheeraj Tomar is a direct import from New Delhi just like the dining room artifacts. The restaurant is designed with wood and marble brought from India and touched with vibrant color that invites guests to experience an atmosphere both elegant and whimsical.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We arrived early for our reservation and were seated right away, but it took a while before we got drinks menus, and service remained pretty slow for the rest of our meal. The food and drinks, however, were amazing and almost worth the wait. My lamb shank was tender and very flavorful, and my husband's vindaloo was very authentic. The ginger Collins was the perfect compliment to my meal. If service had been quicker I would have tried a couple of the other cocktail specialties as well, since they all looked delicious."

  • "We reserved on OT, had Devi call is the next day to confirm. They called us again 30 mins before reservation time to move time. Called back for information, front desk girl was very unprofessional. Was seated immediately when we arrived, got out drinks and had that same girl ask us to move to another table because another party requested that table, again, very unprofessional the way she approaches us and demanded we move. The waiter was great, apologized, got us wine on the house. Food was nothing special, we've had better Indian food. Overpriced. Drinks menu is interesting & good. Ambiance is good. One time eat; wouldn't be returning especially because of the unprofessional staff."

  • "The food and the ambience were great.The drinks were mixed well. Sadly we waited way too long in between - for our appetizers/entrees/desserts to arrive.The staff was friendly - not sure if the delay was from the kitchen.It was restaurant week so we expected better.Another bummer - they did not have the dessert we wanted from the restaurant week menu.The alternative they gave me was a let-down."

  • "My husband and I went to Devi for dinner during restaurant week. We were seated in the back in a very private area which was very nice. The server was really friendly and really helpful throughout the night. We ordered the Chicken Kastoori Kebab and Ginger Potato Hash for appetizers. The Ginger Potato Hash was excellent. The Chicken Kebab was very good but I would have preferred a yogurt sauce rather than the guacamole. For entree I ordered the Spinach & Paneer Vegetarian dumplings which was so so amazing. My husband got the Chicken Tikka Masala. He enjoyed it, but I thought the sauce was a bit too much like tomato basil soup. I can't say enough how fantastic the Gulan Jamun Creme Brulee was."

  • "Beautiful restaurant and the server was very attentive. We took a booth in the back corner where sheer red scarves were hung to make it semi-private. The online menu shows a Devi Lunch Special for an appetizer and entree for $20. Not all of the items were in the restaurant week prix fixe menu which also included dessert for $25. I ordered the Fish Pakora Tacos which seemed more Mexican than Indian. The entree was a Banana Leaf Steamed Sea Bass that was fresh and slightly spicy. I tasted a friend's order of Chicken Tikka Masala. I'd order that next time. For dessert I had some sort of Creme Brule layer on top of a sweet rice pudding dessert -- loved it. That was delicious!"

  • "We have been to Devi before and it was great, but this time we felt we we not really eating Indian food. Trying to be too innovative and missing the essential. Curry one result curry, cauliflower in something similar to ketchup. Sea bass was excellent. Lamb chops with yoghurt ok. Nan portion small and over done."

  • "Some of the food was very creative (fish tacos), most of it was decent average Indian fare. Both the deserts (pistachio kulfi and gulab jamun crime brûlée) were below par. The decor was abysmal - wannabe oriental, mixed with chandeliers and Turkish lanterns). Not worth the money."

  • "We were a party of 3 for lunch during restaurant week. I had read that they also offer a lunch special $19.95 for any appetizer and entrée. The restaurant was empty except for us and a table of 2. It seemed like our presence annoyed the waiter. He was sullen and sour and it was 12pm.- the restaurant just opened. He said the lunch special was not available anymore. When we asked for a regular menu, it was brought over 10 minutes later and we were told if anyone ordered off the menu the others could not have the restaurant week menu. We all opted for the restaurant menu and the food was quite good. The service really marred the dining experience and with so many Indian restaurants in NYC there's no reason to go to Devi."

  • "Came here for restaurant week, and I will certainly be back! The Cilantro Tonic was an amazing cocktail, and I don't usually like gin. The gulab jamun creme brulee was also stellar. Everything I ate was wonderful."

  • "The Pri fix menu for Restaurant week was good as it had good options for both Veg & Non Veg eaters. I went there for a lunch date with my husband. I ordered Spinach & Paneer Kofta. It was rich & creamy and tasty too. The starter was good hash browns with potato and chickpeas. Mango Lassi was the best that we have ever had. Overall good food but pricey even during restaurant week specials as portions are less."

  • "cost of food is way out of proportion to the taste and ambience. average taste, nothing special. Not every dish written on the menu were not available, so we had to settle with what ever they had left."

  • "It was restaurant week and we went here for lunch. The food was served at a relaxed pace. The restaurant is decorated beautifully and I imagine the ambience is enhanced at night. The food is delicious and the portions are huge. We could have done with half the size of the entrees. The hostess was not the warmest or the most welcoming - it needs to be said. We arrived a bit early and were not aware not the place was yet to open for business and she was unnecessarily brusque and rude in waving us off. No smiles. Luckily we did not let this ruin our lunch experience. Our servers were very nice though. The Gulab Jamun creme brûlée is to die for! Our vegetarian party of four quite enjoyed our lunch and I would recommend this place for sure."

  • "A friend and I went to Devi for a restaurant week dinner. The food was pretty good, however the service was mediocre. First, the waiter took a while to even get to us then next he messed up our drink order. At the end of our meal there were unnecessary complications regarding the bill and credit card machine. Overall, we were both very disappointed with our experience dining at Devi."

  • "We were at Devi for Restaurant week. Don't know if service is typically more lax during the onslaught, but we were left sitting at the table for long periods of time waiting to order, waiting for the next course, waiting for tea/coffee after our meal, waiting for the check, etc. The overly relaxed service really diminished our dining experience."

  • "We booked the NYC restaurant week menu offer and thought we were going to have a great experience. Upon arrival we were shown to our table then it took another 7mins for the waiter to give us the menu as he seemed to be flapping over the Americans next to us. He then took our drinks order then our food order and we never saw him again till dessert. The drinks arrived after the first course was served which shouldn't really happen. Overall the food was really good but the service by our waiter was poor. Fortunately the busboys were attentive and friendly. I think our waiter was more interested in being attentive with the Caucasian Americans then Indian people. Even the manager only said hello to select people!"

  • "Cons: overwhelming scent of incense (I'd prefer to smell curry than incense!!) that killed our appetite from the start; very poor customer service from the hostess to the bus boys; tiny portions for the restaurant week menu; mediocre food not worth the cost of what we paid; would prefer another appetizer over their not-that-great desserts. Pros: the decor is nice"

  • "I decided to visit during the restaurant week for dinner. I was disappointed from the time I stepped in. The receptionist did not smile; the waiter did not come to our table for over 7-8 minutes. After the appetizer course, a restaurant of this reputation, i thought would bring us fresh forks and knives, we were asked to keep our flatware for the next course. I asked for water at least 3 times before I was served. I did not get a desert, but we were only given one spoon to share the dessert that my colleague ordered. I did not the check so I decided to get up and went to waiter to give CC Overall I felt that spent over $100 for two and got out really disappointed, because I expected good service and good value for restaurant week."

  • "Devi was one of the restaurants my boyfriend and I chose to try out during Restaurant Week based on excellent reviews. We ate at 7pm on a Tuesday evening, and it was the most quiet restaurant I've been in. The decor was gorgeous, and we were seated on the second level over looking the rest of the restaurant. Service was very good, and even though we were there for Restaurant Week, they were very attentive to our needs. The food itself though was not worth the hype. For Indian food, I was expecting more spice, and intense flavor. While the food was well cooked, it bordered on bland for us. I would love to see if there's a difference between their prix fixe and regular menus."

  • "DELICIOUS. The drinks are just as tasty! The vegetarian and meat dishes are excellent, authentic and full of flavor. I ate there first for a wedding then went back to make sure it was that good. Yes. Try the califlower appetizer and any of their specialty drinks. My favorite was the martini w lime/pear juice/fennel vodka - nice and spicy. If you like spicy food order their food spicy. You won't be disappointed."

  • "Seated in the rear behind a lace curtain, gives a nice sense of privacy to the room. Food was tasty especially the cauliflower, the lam chops and raita. Naan was just ok, a bit doughy. Eggplant was dull. The meal needed a fresh green salad or something. Server was friendly...a bit too many visits to ask if we wanted another drink...annoying Nice spot"

  • "This was our first time at Devi's. We had dinner a bit early in the evening and there were only a few others in the restaurant so, the noise level was very low. The food/menu offerings were different from that of "traditional" American or English Indian food. We thought the food was well prepared and very tasty. However, thought the portions were a bit on the small side. It seems that the menu is for the most part alcarte. Rice, breads and anything else is extra making for an expense dinner. Be prepared to spend greater than $130.00 for two for a limited amount of food. The atmosphere gives you a true Indian cultural experience with a touch of the British colonial influence. The service was good with a friendly reception. Overall Nice!"
