I highly recommend Devi and I will definitely be going back. The food was absolutely delicious. The service was impeccable and the ambience was amazing.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently wonderfulAccommodated our group of 6 in a perfect upstairs setting that allowed us to visit and have a leisurely meal. Food superb as always and very good staff. Has become a planned stop for Indian food whenever we make it through NYC.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat!!Very good ambience and good taste.
One suggestion: Managment of the hotel should consider increasing the options in the menu.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMEuropean influenced IndianFood was excellent, service attentive. My group shared, but the wait staff said the portions are not sized for sharing - we had no complaints. Don't go there expecting authentic Indian desserts - there aren't any.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious FoodOur meal was scrumptious and our server was a delight! We'll be back!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMyumAs usual, you don't even need teeth to each their lamb chops.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMInnovative Indian restaurant.Innovative Indian restaurant. Good and interesting food.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAs usual Devi did not disappoint.As usual Devi did not disappoint. The lamb chops are seriously the best I have ever tasted. The kale chip and sweet potato appetizer was delicious, as well as the paneer and zucchini appetizer. The coconut shrimp biryani entree was superb. Their homemade ice cream is so yummy. Especially the caramel flavor! But, my favorite dessert is the Emperor's Morsel....to die for! I will return to Devi again and again.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe rich spices you want even w/o BExcelent well spiced food and a remarkable mixes of alcohol free cocktails. The Tamarind sour I had was just the right note. Food is overal solidly spicy but not that hot compared to most Vindalos in NY. We could have just enjoyed the wonderful appetizers alone. The vegetable salad was richly flavored and the star was the contrast of the well
Seasoned bakes Kale chips with the sweet potato even for the none sweet potato fans.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great, especiallyThe food was great, especially the lamb chops. However, there was no wine/alcohol because of situation with their liquor license.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe waiter was unpolishedThe waiter was unpolished and they did not serve alcohol due to a problem with their liquor license, but the food was good!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDevi was great. I had madeDevi was great. I had made a reservation with a request for a table by the window and they ACTUALLY listened. This is rare in my experience.. The hostess was very sweet and the service impeccable. Food at Devi is divine. They're very in tune with social media as well, and i benefited with a free appetizer AND a 20$ gift card - just from checking in on foursquare and liking them on Facebook. My only tip is to be wary of the candles near the window. They're real and I almost knocked them down with my coat. Oops. Overall, amazing experience. Will Devi-nitely be back :)4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI enjoyed the food and service.I enjoyed the food and service. The only thing I didn't like, there was no alcohol. I plan on goin back with my sister.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this restaurant, it'sLove this restaurant, it's a gem, will definitely go back. There were 4 of us at dinner both meat eaters and vegetarians. Everyone loved it. Devi was the first Indian restaurant to be in the Michelin restaurant guide and after eating there we all know why! Everything was delicious, the service was excellent, the decor warm. We could hear each other speak, a rarity in nyc restaurants. Thank you Devi Nyc for a beautiful dining experience! We will be back!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMReally nice ambience !! LoveReally nice ambience !! Love the soy malai tikka and lamp chops. This place had made it to top of my list of Indian restaurant. Enough said :)3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMawesome food served sharp!i have been to Devi several times as I used to work near Union Sq. and this was a gem among many restaurants in the neighborhood. What i experience in Devi every time is what i would get in India but with twist that does not deviate from the origin of the dish. food to me is an exciting balance of color, aroma, texture and flavor and Devi hits the spot on all senses. Then comes the quality of ingredients.. be it a game dish or their famous lamb chop... my mouth waters as i type. SLURRP! and then the plating that would distract to you know whats being served on the table next to yours. What truely makes my day at Devi is the people. warm, smiling and consistently knowledgeable.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMIndian food's modern AvatarJust hit the spot! Had the tasting menu with 7 courses with my girlfriend and every course was a dream. I am Indian and love traditional fare but devi excels at presenting the same traditional flavors with modern accents. The highlights were coconut shrimp bruschetta and the eggplant bhartha. Great ambiance, very friendly staff. Its an special occasion restaurant not something u just wanna walk in for a casual meal and then crib about high prices. (i could see many other diners talking about prices here) Definitely going back!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Innovative Indian handsBest Innovative Indian hands down! I read some recent average reviews but I guess everyday isn't Sunday! Gorgeous venue, great friendly service (they are not formal like a pretentious steakhouse or other 3 star NYC restaurants but simply more human!)
I am a vegetarian and the soy appetizer as super. My girlfriend enjoyed her bhel puri and coconut shrimp. For main we got the jackfruit biryani. What aromas without being too heavy. The drinks selection was great! Definitely going back.
PS: There was a small private event in the balcony which I think is a beautiful space and we are planning our rehearsal dinner there.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMDevi it is the best IndianDevi it is the best Indian restaurant I know in manhattan. Outstanding quality and good service at reasonable price. We have been several times and we will totally come back. For atpertaizer the coliflower is delicious.2/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best Indian mealsOne of the best Indian meals we ever had.
