    Food was okay. The Chicken Tikka and the Butter Chicken were the exact same dish with the exception of a little garnish on the butter chicken. The sweet naan bread had a tiny amount of filling. The mango chutney was delicious. Overall the restaurant was nothing to write home about.

    I've ordered take out from Om numerous times and the food was always great and delivered fast. This was my first time eating at the restaurant and it was nicer than I anticipated, the server was very helpful and pleasant and the food was great as anticipated.

    The naan and shrimp curry was outstanding, but I was a little disappointed with the lamb (too tough!). Efficient service, clean space, but I do like colorful Indian decor (red walls, bright colors, etc); perhaps this place didn't want to be stereotypical. Overall, a lovely dinner.

    Tight little place, but great food. Service was actually pretty excellent, except that they kinda forgot about our food for a while and then apologized. Also, the wine list is very minimal, but they allow BYOB, so I will opt for that next time.

    Amazing food and great service! I would say the only thing we noticed was the lack of communication among servers. Several took care of us and we had to ask multiple times for things, and also they had to double check the order multiple times.

    This place was awful, the food was not traditional and lacked flavor and spice. The Korma dish i ordered tasted nothing like Korma and the consistency of the sauce was soupy.

    Visiting New York from Miami, went with my niece who lives nearby and I could not have enjoyed the experience more. This was only the second time I've been to an an Indian food restaurant and I'm afraid that I've been spoiled for any other one. Food was fresh, well prepared, ambiance was warm and accommodating. The only negative was that there was a short wait to get our table but honestly I'd be more that willing to wait twice as long as we did. The Nan was superb and the Butter Chicken is a can't miss item. Our waiter, Bopal, was great.All this and for prices that are truly unbelievable for the area, our bill for five people came to $115.00 If your are in NYC head to the upper East side and treat yourself to great food at a great price.

    Service was friendly and professional and the food was great. Good selection. No wine list, but very quick to provide glasses and openers for BYO beer and wine. Front door opens directly into restaurant though and could be a problem in cold weather. Also a bit noisy and crowded, but not too bad for a neighborhood spot.

    Good neighborhood Indian food at a reasonable price. Food was medium-spicy and flavorful but not oily, which to me is a sign of quality. The decor is simple and clean, but the restaurant probably could use some sound-absorbing decor somewhere--we came in for an early weekday lunch and as soon as another, larger party came in, my companion and I had difficulty with conversation even though we weren't near the larger party.

    I think this is the 4th or 5th time I have been to OM, and I really like it. Each time the food has been consistently great. I don't know much about Indian food, so I really on the servers and the host, Mike to guide me through the menu. I have never been disappointed. I also love the no corkage BYO wine or beer policy. Its a small narrow space, but it never feels crowded or sounds loud. Everything inside is immaculate. I will return soon.

    Wonderful Indian food and friendly professional service. Everything is expertly spiced, carefully cooked, and none of the grease one finds in many Indian restaurants. There's a talented chef in the kitchen. The decor is simple and tasteful but minimal. I love this place.

    Om serves the best Indian food I've had outside India. Worth a trip uptown: if you live nearby take advantage of your good fortune. The service is attentive but unobtrusive, and the tiny restaurant is bright and clean - none of the dark wood and dingy carpets of the other neighborhood Indian places. BYOB with no corkage makes it ridiculously affordable.

    While the food was great I will not be back. Our party of 3 had a 7:30 reservation and were not seated until 10 past 8. After that I had to walk back to the waitress stand to ask for water and to place our appetizer order. We then immediately placed our dinner order, but did not receive the food for about 50 minutes. Meanwhile a party of 5 came in, sat down and got their food within about 25 minutes time. Very very disappointed.

    Owner Michael was present and introduced himself when I arrived. I haven't ordered Indian but I do love it so he was very helpful. We had 2 apps and 2 entrees and our bill was $43... we brought a bottle of wine as this is BYOB. Our food was really fresh and delicious and at really great prices. Place is bright, clean and inviting -- I am sure I will be back often.

    This is a small restaurant with a lot of character. The staff is very helpful but not too overwhelming. This is not the hottest or trendiest establishment but the food is good, you will feel comfortable and you will enjoy the staff's thoughtfulness. The food did not stand out compared to other Indian restaurants but it was still good. The spicy food was great and actually spicy. Great place if you want to have a low key dinner.

    This is the second open table restaurant that refused to accept my open table dining check. Prices were moderate to high for basic indian in a tiny room. The appetizer and tkka m. were lovely but the tandoori was dry as dust and barely edible. Byob policy may be changing soon. Too bad the wine I brought was the best thing about the meal. My recommendation would only b based on byob policy while they still have it.
