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.

They seemed very understaffed. Food took forever to come out. Long enough to make me feel invisible to the waiter. But the food was well worth it. Portions are decent. You paying about $15 per item. Nice date spot

We went to Bhatti for the second time in 2 weeks on Saturday! We love it there. They have amazing Indian food and the staff is welcoming and friendly. We originally booked an outside table but it was cold so we asked to sit inside and they were very accommodating!
I had Chicken tikka masala and my husband had lamb Rogan josh. Both were excellent.
We are planning on another visit to NYC soon and we will be back to Bhatti!
Definitely recommend!!

The non-veg food tasted really good. They can do better on the service and can increase their drink selection too. But overall, had a good time at the restaurant, Worth a try.

My husband and I were visiting N.Y. for the weekend and we wanted good Indian food. The food here was amazing! We lived in London for a while and the food at Bhatti was better than any Indian food we had in London! I had chicken tikka masala and my husband had lamb rogan josh. We sat outside because of Covid and it was an enjoyable experience. The staff was attentive and friendly. We definitely recommend Bhatti Indian Grill. We will be back! Thank you so much!

The food was delicious! The restaurant was cute, but they left the door open a lot (for COVID safety - which is good), but it did make the restaurant freezing. I do believe they had outdoor, heated seating otherwise. The service was fair -- a bit inattentive -- but polite and kind when they did visit our table.

I had high expectations after viewing online. The staff is kind but needs LOTS of training. The environment is lackluster. The food wasn’t bad but with so many better Indian restaurants in Brooklyn, it wasn’t worth the trip out. Hopefully they get better down the line.

The food was absolutely AMAZING, fresh, steaming, and the meat was so unbelievable soft and tender!!
They even gave us a small dish to taste on the house because my friend and I probably ordered so much food lol - but the server was super helpful in assisting us decide what we should order. Can’t wait to go back!

Great experience even in such tough times. I gave few less stars on service to get their attention to detail on the order. We had ask for the condiments which are key to enjoy such great meal arrived when at the tail end when we were almost done with the meal.

Picky review yes but in such times, I'm willing to pay extra COVID tax, sitting out in freezing Temp (not even complaining about heating). I'm in no way looking for great service but key times.

We've been to Bhatti twice. The first time was a few years ago and it was great. This time around, nowhere near as good.
There wasn't enough staff to handle the tables. We waited a while for our orders to be taken, and when they were, it was not done in the friendly type of manner you'd expect. White wine was just put on the table and not in anything to keep it cool.
Also noticed that there were a number of orders going out to delivery services making service to the tables slower than it should have been.

Great tasting food. A little wait for 1 dish.
A small drinks menu, therefore not much choice however as a result the prices are low compared to elsewhere in the city.
Our friend wanted a Vindaloo, not in the menu. But all food was very tasty and we enjoyed it.
Small venue, therefore when full, the acoustics can be noisy. Would definitely go back.

Great Indian food at a reasonable price. the atmosphere is quiet and very nice. None of the dishes we had were less than delicious. A word of warning: the food is pretty spicy so beware. Also, no beer on tap - only bottles.

Was decent, but not as good as I had hoped. The service was ok. One table almost walked out without paying as they asked and waited 20 minutes for their check. Not an issue for us, but just mediocre service.

The food was okay- small portions - but the crush of uber eats delivery people coming and going continuously - was a real buzz kill. They need to sort out a separate pick up entrance for take out. Wouldn’t go back.

Outside door consistently open leading to a cold room.
Service basically inattentive.
Food good but not outstanding, and as there are many Indian restaurants in NYC, this one dies does not merit a special visit.

The food, price and ambiance was good. They don’t have a corkage fee so we were able to bring our own wine which was nice. Very busy on a week night, definitely need a reservation, place is small.
