A word from Yuva
Owners Kedar Shah and Hritu Deepak have teamed up with Master Chef Dhandu Ram of the highly acclaimed restaurant “Bukhara” at the Maurya Sheraton in New Delhi, India to bring you the world famous Kebabs and Slow-Cooked dishes native to India’s frontiers. The restaurant is a tribute to India’s Open Fire Cooking where Chef Ram takes his patrons on a savory culinary tour of India that features specialties of his homeland bordering Afghanistan and Kashmir. Yes, the food is traditional frontier fare presented with New York flair, but the atmosphere is as far from the rugged rough and tough northwest frontier province as you can get!

Diner Reviews
  • "My boyfriend & I went to Yuva to celebrate his new promotion at work. We wanted to find a spot that was more upscale than most Indian places and also offered cocktails (in addition to only the usual beer & wine fare that most Indian spots offer). Yuva hit the spot. The decor was much nicer compared to traditional Indian restaurants, white linen tablecloths, low lighting and candles. Cocktails were named and prepared with fare of the region; they were sweet and tasty but not strong enough to warrant the $10-12 price tag, IMO. Food was excellent, GREAT vegetarian selection. It came out quickly and piping hot. Servers were attentive but a little awkward in their interaction & not the most attentive w/water refills."

  • "The food was excellent & we wanted a quiet place where we could talk with old friends. I'm not sure what pre-concert/theatre feels like since our rez. was for 8:45 pm - but the place was almost empty & very quiet by that time."

  • "I had a birthday dinner here and found the food and service to be very good. We had the fried okra for appetizer - plated very nicely with a small salad. Crispy, hot, thinly sliced - I thought I hated okra - but this was delicious. Shared mains included a mixed tandoori grill (ok but not stupendous - had mostly chicken, not enough onion) very good saag paneer, and excellent chicken vindaloo. Sides of jasmine rice and onion kulcha (bread). Serving sizes are quite large. Service was a little inattentive, had to ask for an order of lassi twice. Ambiance very nice - tablecloths. Also loved the assortment of chutneys as appetizer with crispy bread . Would come again. And order less!"

  • "on Christmas eve, the restaurant was quiet and not very full. As a result, the wait staff was incredibly attentive and went out of the way to ensure that my party of five was well cared for. The food and wine went well together and we walked away very satisfied."

  • "We were with friends and were were all treated like kings. The waitstaff heard that we had a birthday so they brought a special birthday dessert. The food was wonderful and very reasonably priced. The waitstaff couldn't do enough for us. I haven't been that well treated in a restaurant for a long time."

  • "We were drawn to Yuva by the aromatic fragrance of its kitchen filling our room at the B&B above it (Ivy Terrace B&B). The environment at Yuva was serene and the staff friendly and attentive. Our chicken tika masala was quite good and the naan was excellent. Our spinach/lamb dish went half finished. The portions were noticeably small. However, we were satisfied with our experience and will return on our next stay at the B&B."

  • "I love Yuva! This is my third time eating there. The food is always great. Definitely try their Dal Mahkani and order the Tandoori Paneer or Kasta Kachori as an appetizer. The dessert was great also."

  • "The food was so delicious. We didn't have space for dessert after eating all the great food, but the awesome manager wanted us to try the specialty so gave us some on the house. It was AWESOME! Service across the board was very good and attentive. Food was great and I love all the different sauces they have. Drinks were good - and though bartender takes some time to make the drinks, its cause he is paying careful attn to each drink - they are very well made."
