Food, service, ambiance, valet
Food, service, ambiance, valet were all terrific, but skip any kind of martini, their liquor is seriously watered down, which just makes me not trust this establishment. I had a gin martini and my dining partner had a vodka - both tasted 1/2 strength. Not really acceptable for a downtown restaurant.
The food was very good and I'll go back - just skip the drinks.

Atmosphere was very nice.
Atmosphere was very nice. Authentic Indian artifacts. Temperature was a little too warm and the construction site across the street was very unpleasant (especially with bright safety lights glaring through big plate glass windows in the restaurant). Maybe some shades or curtains would help until construction is finished.
Food was very good but still not as good as India House (which has been closed for renovation for months). Owner was very friendly and waiter (who was at Gaylord's for years) was very enjoyable. Once the order was taken, however, service was quite slow.
Overall an okay experience and we'll return (especially for the noon buffet which has a great reputation).

This place is very good, authentic food. Great flavors.. Service was OK, a little slow, for not being so busy.

best naan ever
I work in the neighborhood and was happy to find a close place to satisfy my curry craving. The entrance is a bit odd, but well worth the adventure into the misleading entry and up two small flights of stairs. It was by far the best naan I've ever had. Crispy underneath, airy and well seasoned on the top. The rest of the food was great as well.

SPICY! (And delicious!)
Had the Murg Tikka Masala and the Chicken Korma. The Tikka Masala was awesome, the Korma was great, but it was SO spicy! If you love spicy food, that's your dish! The Naan is to die for. The only reason I gave service such a low grade was the waiter we had seemed distracted, not much checking in on us or asking how the food was. I was burning from the spicy Korma and needed a refill of iced tea and had to ask for it. But other than that, we'd go back again and again for the amazing food.

My wife and I eat at Indian
My wife and I eat at Indian Garden at least twice a month and we always enjoy our experience. Good food and great atmosphere.

Indian Garden great - Open Table no
Indian Garden was a pleasure as always. Open Table was impossible to navigate as always - you need two-way communication, or at least to be user friendly.

The food was excellent. If
The food was excellent. If you like spicy, try the Chicken Tikka Masala. The Assorted Appetizer platter is a nice way to start your meal. Enjoy!

A vast improvement!
The food has always been good here (try the saffron tandoori chicken, the lamb chops, the lentils, the spinach), and now the place has undergone a lovely refurbishing. The entryway which was once dark is now bright and light. The interior decorating is much improved and the setting is now quite lovely and it compliments the food.

Appetizing and Affordable
I went to this restaurant for lunch on a first date and was surprised by how beautifully decorated it was. There surprisingly weren't very many people there despite the Sunday brunch buffet, but that just made for a quiet, overall enjoyable experience in the lovely environment.
The service wasn't outstanding, but they weren't terrible either. We needed to figure out what items on the menu were vegan, which should have been simple enough, but we spent a few minutes awkwardly standing near the front desk while we waited to get someone's attention. That aside, the service was adequate.
As an Indian I can say that the food was excellently prepared. I was shocked to see how inexpensive the meal was for two entrees with quality that great!

I went based on Zagat's review and was SO pleased. I made reservations on line (super easy) and my 5 friends all LOVED this place and the excellent food. Chicken Tikka Marsala is a MUST. Lovely staff, very friendly. Pretty murals. Great job, IG!!!

Hadn't been to IG for awhile
Hadn't been to IG for awhile and forgot how good it is. There's nothing terribly unusual about IG's food, but whatever they do, they do very well. We had cottage cheese pakoras for openers - light and subtle. We shared a great shrimp dish and the vegetarian thali. All perfectly cooked and delicious. Owners and waitstaff were attentive and friendly. Prices are fair (though I thought $21.95 for the thali was a little high). The decor is attractive and comforting. All in all, if you're in the neighborhood and want Indian, you can't go wrong here.

Better than Zagat states
It was better than the 21 Zagat gives it, particularly since we had the buffet. Food was authentic, well made with attentive staff. Price was 15.99 which was reasonable. The decor was GREAT! and very typical of a place in India and in my opinion very tasteful. In my opinion if I were to rate it based on Zagat 23 for food, 25 for decor (not 15) and 23 for service. So Zagat needs to send their surveyors to other countries to get it too!
