    My friend and I ordered vegetarian dishes-the samosas, tandoori mushroom, baingan bharta and one of the panir entrees (I don't recall which one). All the food was delicious. The service was polite and efficient. The restaurant was quiet enough for us to have a conversation and hear each other easily.

    The dishes here are delicious! I've only had all veggie dishes, and have not tried any of the meat dishes. I'm sure it is very good as well.

    Was in town for business from a small mid-western city - staying downtown. Looked for a good place to meet son and dau-in-law who live in Hoboken. She is vegan. I'm easy with that, but like a place where I can have a beer and meat if I want. Most important is a place quiet enough to get in a good visit. Ruchi was perfect. Close to my hotel so I didn't get lost, quiet so we could catch up, lots of menu choices for all, and a very welcoming staff who was attentive but could tell we were in no hurry. The kids were impressed - esp when a large group of their peers: 20-30 something Indians came for supper - good validation I'd say. We lingered two hours. I was a hit for the pick and they have a new place to go.

    On a recent Saturday night, we had tickets to a performance at Pace University. My husband is a very finicky eater as well as a vegetarian. Finding a restaurant to his liking in the financial district was a challenge. I stumbled across Ruchi in reviews on Yelp and decided to give it a try. Despite sitting at the foot of the Freedom Tower, the food was excellent and the service extremely attentive and personal. We enjoyed our relaxing meal, followed by a leisurely walk to Pace. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

  • A cheap disgrace

    I ordered an chicken entré for $14 and that gets you the chicken, literally. I had to pay another $14 for rice and another $3 for naan. I understand how an Indian restaurant can charge you for naan but charging you for rice? That's a bit ridiculous and it comes off as cheap. If my review seems exaggerated then let me add a bit more to the fact. The have a lunch special that gives 50% off for North Indian food only. What kind of discriminatory deal is that? I would NEVER come back to this restaurant nor would I recommend it to any of my friends, let alone my Indian friends.

    Food was good. Service was erratic! We had multiple servers trying to take our orders. We never knew whether our order was actually taken or not. I despise cilantro and they were accommodating.

    We enjoyed dinner and the service was fine. Great location for sure. Only wish I knew why they have a score of "B" by the City. Prior to this we have not dined in a restaurant other than one rated "A".

    Food and service are good, but not fancy. The restaurant is small but quite close to the 9/11 Memorial, so if you are there and in the mood for an Indian meal at a reasonable price, stop in.

    The foods decent but the service levels and professionalism is sub par. Compared to my visit to Tamarind and Baluchi, we did not order as much but the bill was only $10 less than Baluchi and $23 less than Tamarind. The food is not innovative and as for service- one of my diners was handed an opener along with a bottle of sparkling water. They charge for rice and charged $6 for garnish! I would want to support this seemingly family owned place but I think they think abt the short term- how can we fleece the consumer this one time... I'm going back to Baluchi loyalty for frequent orders.
