After having trouble finding a table for 7 on Mother's Day, we found Matt & Meera Cafe. The menu was varied and innovative. Each of us loved our meal. The naanchos were fun. Attentive service

Great tip from our JC friends - Uber to Hoboken so as to not have to find parking

We visit here frequently for the regular menu, which is always delicious (especially the fish tikka). Tried the prix fix menu for Valentine's Day and the fish was amazing. They were super busy but we didn't mind the longer wait time as it gave us more time to sit and relax while the sitter had the kid! Normally service is much faster, but totally understand since it was Valentine's Day. Highly recommend this place, especially with kids on an early evening.

Went here with my husband and another couple on a Saturday - loved the food (naan-chos were awesome!!) and the warm, inviting ambiance was perfect for catching up with old friends. BYOB kept the price down which always helps. Overall just a great, solid experience, we will go back whenever the next curry craving starts. Not a late-night spot from what I gather...the place cleared out and we were the only table left by about 10 or 10:30.

We had a great experience at Matt & Meera. The food was really great - samosas, garlic naan, and chicken biryani were all really tasty and nicely presented, and the rose creme brulee was a very creative take on a favorite; there were lots of options for those who love Indian food and others for folks who are less familiar.

Service was warm and attentive but not annoying. The seats were spread nicely and offered good privacy. The environment was upbeat but not loud or irritating. Bringing our own wine really made this a great value. We would absolutely come back and would recommend this place to others.

My friends loved their dishes however I did not and had order envy. The service was slow and the ambiance was terrible. There was a large group of obnoxiously loud people who did not lower their volume after repeated reminders from management and other patrons. At some point their gang mentality lead them to crowd our table after we told them to "please lower" their volume. The manager later told us that he had them in his restaurant before and they have caused trouble however he was choosing to be passive and let them dine.

I always wanted to try this place from last year and so I did with my friends. Its a BYOB so make sure you have a few bottles of wine. The food, ambience and service was excellent. Me and my friends where last ones to leave and not rushed in any manner. We are foodies and this like a Mecca for food lovers. Presentation was awesome! Highly recommend. Plan to frequent this place any time we decide to meet in Jersey City or Hoboken.

This was my first time at his restaurant. I was drawn there due to the uniqueness of their menu when I looked online. I have been to many great Indian restaurants, but none that feature many of the unique and creative dishes here. The food was amazing! We shared appetizers and then each got our own entree. The service was also excellent. Every staff person was kind, friendly, and humble. This is the best Indian restaurant I have ever been to! I highly recommend it :)

I have discovered this little gem in Hoboken that replaced Kati Roll a month ago: Matt & Meera. At first, we were not sure what we would get there as the name did not really indicate anything in particular. I was not even sure it would be a restaurant!

We went a first time and it was so good that we came back! The first time, I was lucky to meet one of the owners Chef Hari Nayak who wrote several cookbooks. He told me that the idea was to put together American and Indian cuisine, bring Indian spices and twist to American classics. In fact, the name itself is made of a common name in the US (Matt) and a common name in India (Meera): these people do not exist and only represent...

Very good food. Interesting concepts regarding Indian fusion. The lamb kebabs w cheese were delicious, but got a little heavy at the end. The nachos were delicious. Service was good and overall a delicious and fun experience.

Dinner on Friday night at 6:30 pm started well: attentive and prompt service, fast and tasty appetizers. Then, as the restaurant filled up, it went downhill. Main courses were good except for the Tandoori Lamb that was so salty that one guest returned it and got a replacement dish. Oddly, they were "out of" lamb shank at 6:45 pm when we first ordered. Rosemary naan was delicious. By 8:00 pm it was a mob scene and the service fell apart. We waited 30 minutes for an order of bread pudding (with a candle--it was a birthday--and when we went up to the desk to cancel the order, they apologized and brought it out. We knew that paying the bill would take forever, so again we went up to the desk to pay. I'd go back to Matt and Meara because the food is interesting and mostly good but beware of the service on a Friday night.

My husband, son and I absolutely love this place. We tend to go early, when it is very quiet, and we enjoy both the excellent and friendly service as well as the wonderful food - which I would call nouveau Indian-Asian - many favorites are re-imagined in ways that are more interesting, healthier, or both. We've tried almost everything, and have yet to be disappointed. When we are leaving around 8pm, the place is full and the ambience is warmer. It's BYO.

The food at this place is really nice and well thought-out. The naan-chos, guac sev puri, quinoa tikka masala, and paneer naan pizza were delicious. The only item that was lacking in flavor was the masala potato kati roll. The outdoor seating was a nice option. The service could have been better but it was not terrible.

Went here for Valentines day and it was very nice. The naan-chos are very tasty and I'd recommend starting with them. We got some lamb samosas which were very good as well. The lamb burger was great as was the chicken kebabs. Overall, the food was great. The expresso-brule was extremely good too! BYOB makes it even more affordable as well. I'll definitely go again!

Went to Matt & Meera's on a Friday night with a group of 4. Food was excellent! But would warn that many of the dishes are pretty spicy, luckily for me I LOVE spicy, but was too spicy for a few in the group. Service however was extremely slow. The servers were polite but we had multiple servers throughout the night. We had to wait a long time in btw courses. It started when the server realized that 2 of the apps he started to bring out were wrong , which then delayed the rest of the meal. Also when our dessert came out, they only brought 3 instead of 4, telling us that we only ordered 3. However, after consulting with our 1st waiter, they figured out that they were out of the dessert that my husband had ordered but had not informed us.

Matt & Meera is one of my favorite Hoboken restaurants. It's BYOB, has amazing food, and great service. I have never eaten one of their dinner plates because all of their small plates are so good, we end up just ordering 3-4 of those! The Naan-chos are my favorite!! Great outdoor seating, indoor seating is very tight, but intimate.

We had the Indian nachos. this was interesting mix of melted cheese, crispy indian bread and indian condiments. We then had the Crispy shrimp salad-yum. For entrees we had the fennel lamb and the one of the chicken dishes. Both were excellent. This is a great BYOB. Indian food flavor without a crazy amount of spices. we will return.

Good Indian cooking. The lamb chops with fennel were just right for me (I don't care much for a lot of spices) and my partner's chicken with more spices pleased him a lot. Definitely a good addition to the otherwise rather bleak Hoboken dining options.
