Do not be put off by the funky entrance. Yes, you go up some steep stairs that look a little dodgy but once inside it is lovely. Most of the people who dine here are regulars. It feels like family dining.

Once by myself and then brought a friend. The food is fantastic and I think a lot of people agree with me because there are many regulars in the restaurant. The entrance is hard to see from the street and there are some funky stairs going up to the second floor but blame the landlord not the restaurant. Once you enter the door of the restaurant it is lovely and homey. The owner greeted me like an old friend and even remembered my food sensitivities.

Yes, they should do something about the stairs, but keep walking and enter. The interior is pleasant and clean. Most importantly, the food is superb, with a good choice from different Indian states. Do not let the staircase stop you. The culinary experience is memorable.

After you enter, the restaurant has a calm ambiance (if not terribly fancy) and low lighting. The most important thing is that the food is OUT OF SIGHT! Delight yourself with a dish and a side or two to share with a friend - it will be more than enough.

Servers are attentive and helpful. The menu is varied and the choices are abundant. Agra has been around for many years as it should have been. Had some lamb with spinach and lentils......and recently tried the calamari done in chick pea batter. Give it a try!!

Great food, great service, and moderately priced.

However the restaurant is located on the 2nd floor of a tenement, at the top of a very long and steep staircase. I don’t remember reading this in your description. One of my friends is infirm and we had a very arduous and nerve racking time getting him up and especially down those stairs.

It's up a flight of stairs, so those on walkers beqware. The bathroom is external to the restaurant, kind of youth hostel-style. But there are few good options near Hunter/the Armory, and I will return to Agra.

It's as good as I remembered when I used to come here with family in my youth. The decor and ambiance are great for either a date night or a get-together with friends or family. The quality of the food is terrific, as this restaurant has been able to last for over 30 years. The staff are very courteous and attentive, and we never felt rushed or like we were second rate patrons. If there are any negatives, it's that the restaurant is on a busy stretch of Lexington Ave with traffic that can be a bit loud, especially when the windows are open. But I saw this as a minor negative that didn't detract much from the overall experience and value.
