Good Vegetarian Options
Bhatti Indian Grill is an ultra-authentic north Indian restaurant in the heart of NYC that’s refined yet affordable, upscale and modern. Bhatti opened its doors in 2009 to much fan fare and accolades for the authenticity it brought to indian cuisine.

One of the city’s preeminent Indian chefs and restaurateurs, Gaurav Anand of Awadh and Moti Mahal Delux has completely revamped and renovated Bhatti just in time to celebrate its 10th anniversary this year. Perennially packed and attracting celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence and Food Network’s Duff Goldman, Bhatti became a popular dining destination due to its delicious, boldly-flavored food, especially kebabs. For its 10th anniversary, Gaurav wanted the restaurant that set him on a successful restaurant career to get a sexier new look, more elevated menu and an adventurous beverage program including an all natural wine list, befitting the next decade.

The service could not have been worse. The food was pretty good but did not overcome the lack of competent service.

Inspite of reservation, our table was in a very congested location wherein other tables were available.

Nicely decorated in chrome, grey and black. Started with one of the kabob apps, which was a creative dish. Then we shared a vegetarian paneer curry. Paneer cubes had lots of flavor, not just texture, as did the mild tomato cream sauce it was cooked in, especially for a vegetarian dish. Garlic naan was a good choice, also. A little pricey for the area, but also nicer atmosphere and service.

We had a reservation for two, and arrived on time. Announced ourselves and reservation and were asked to wait, in a tone that suggested annoyance. When seated we ordered a bottle of wine. It was delivered, already uncorked, and left on the table, unserved. A group of eight diners waiting to be seated were gathered outside the door of the restaurant. They included an active cigarette smoker, whose tobacco aroma wafted past every time the door was opened. Management was non-responsive to our request that the smoker be asked to step away from the door. Dilli Ka Butter Chicken was much spicier than typical Butter Chicken, and unappetizing to my companion though I had a taste and liked it. Be aware of the extra spice. I enjoyed my lamb Rogan Josh. Rice was well prepared, tasty and fluffy. Lacha paratha was soggy. Wine was an undistinguished Spanish Sauvignon Blanc. Photo of restaurant posted by owner on OpenTable is out-of-date.

Food and service were both good but, drink service was below par. Many people serving wine & beer by the glass and all was served warm.

The food is typically very good. They redecorated with a gaudy gold and black motif that wasn’t to our liking. We will return despite the ambiance downgrade. The service is pretty rough but the terrific spice makes up for it.

I’ve been going to this restaurant for 6 years so I have a long history here. It is now “renovated” in black and gold motif (ugh) with all new servers. The service was terrible (asking us if we’re ready to order even before taking our drink order). The food was as good as ever but the experience was nothing like it was pre-renovation and pre-new wait staff. Will need to find a new favorite Indian place in the neighborhood.

Most of the food was delicious. I didn't, however, like their signature beef kabab. Service was ok but unfriendly. The noise level was ridiculously high.

We were visiting from the UK and had a craving for Indian food. We were not disappointed. The food and service were outstanding. Everything was fresh and vibrant and each of the dishes we tried were so different in flavour. Will definitely be visiting them again when we next come to NY

Everything was delicious. Didn’t think much of the bean kebab, could leave that out of choices. Like the new decor and update to environment. Looks cleaner and better organized.

The restaurant didn’t have the table ready for us. We had to wait over 30 minutes. Poor coordination between the restaurant and Open Table. Disappointed.

During the meal, we didn't find the food terribly flavorful. But what sent this into "We will never come here again" territory was when my husband became violently ill a few hours after our meal. It kept him up for most of the night.

Paneer appetizer was the best paneer I have ever tasted (and I am a paneer lover). Chicken in mixed grill appetizer very flavorful. Great experience. I will be going back again for sure.

I have been to Bhatti numerous times. The food is still good but the service has been consistently poor. They need a new wait staff or intense hospitality industry training.

Server insisted we had to sit at table next to front door even though place was empty. Freezing & drafty yet she insisted. Servers only spoke to my husband. If you’re female good luck being heard. Food was mediocre. Won’t be back.

This is our “go to” restaurant for excellent Indian dishes. Small, popular, a bit tight on space, but the food is worth it. BYOB option, but they do sell wine as well.

The restaurant is very good and I would highly recommend it. The food was very tasty. I think the noise level is quite high and there was literally people standing over us to get inside however it was totally worth it. The food was very authentic and def worth its value. One note, is to always check your bill as the staff made mistakes several times (first brought us someone else's bill, then gave us our bill with 4 extra things on it, then I had to come up and have them revise it once again since there was still 2 things extra on it. Overall I would def come back here again and recommend it.
