Excellent dinner. The food
Excellent dinner. The food was very good and the portions were very large. We had more food than we could eat. I found the cost to be fair for the quality of the food. I highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely return when I visit NYC in the future.

Went for lunch and ordered
Went for lunch and ordered off the Lunch Menu. The prices were great for really high quality food. The ambiance is a pleasant attempt at hip (or something). Our waiter was friendly and helpful.
I will definately go back.

Good food, but okay service.
Good food, but okay service. It was extremely noisy (granted it was a Friday night). We were asked to promptly leave after paying our bill. We had lefts over and requested them to pack it - got home and realized they packed 2 entrees (one non-vegetarian and one vegetarian) in one container..

Chote Nawab has the best combinatio
Chote Nawab has the best combination of food, service, and ambiance in this part of Manhattan for its genre. I discovered it while walking with a friend several months ago, and I have been back to entertain with many different friends and colleagues.

GET THE BIRYANI
This is really the best presentation of biryani I've ever seen. It comes in a pot with a thick puffy delicious naan baked on top. Really killer!

Fantastic food, but loud, real loud
We'll still keep returning, despite the din. The food is that good.

Superb n. Indian food
There is an eggplant appetizer that is just wonderful.
Portions are big. Hot here means hot.
The vindaloo is outstanding as is the aloo paratha.
It has become our favorite Indian rest.

Try the specialty dishes!
I went with a group of 3 for dinner. We had a reservation and were promptly seated. The menu has a lot of the standards (chicken tikka masala, biryani), but I would recommend being adventurous and trying one of the regional specialties. I was blown away by the Mirapakaya Kodi (chicken tossed with coconut, green chilies and curry leaves), a real stand-out, spicy and tangy. The Malai Kofte were big and and had light texture (not a carb bomb, not greasy), a sweet creamy sauce that was a nice counterpoint to the spicy chicken. Efficient service, especially considering that it was packed! I want to go back and try everything else...

Excellent Indian Food
This was my first foray to "Curry Hill" so I read many reviews and Chote Nawab had excellent ones! It lived up to the reviews, as everything we ate was delicious, perfectly spiced. I ordered the mixed kebab plate for $20! It was so much food, enough truly for 3 people to share it with a vegetable dish and be stuffed. Most of it had to go home with my friend as I was leaving town. It was truly amazing how much chicken, shrimp, lamb, etc was piled on this plate! Unbelievable and so moist and delicious. We had paleek paneer (spinach with cheese cubes) and it was also filled with large and luscious paneer Great Naan, buttery and crispy and soft at the same time. Excellent chutneys too. Highly recommended. I want to go back.

Best Malai Kofta ever
Their Malai Kofta is Must-Try. Some of the other items could be a tad bit less greasy. The rotis and naans are excellent as well and the staff is very polite and pleasant.

Chose this randomly off a Yelp review and was really pleased. Quality food and excellent service! Would definitely return.
