This elegantly attired restaurant, named after one of the oldest civilizations in the world, offers a menu that features many classic dishes from the Indian subcontinent like an assortment of kebabs, curries and biryanisslow cooked rice dishes which feature vegetables or meat and many aromatic spices. However, the menu at Indus Valley / Manhattan Valley also has some unusual offerings like chicken chat and chicken samosas, which do not normally feature on menus of Indian restaurants. Also, instead of the weekend buffet which is considered to be de rigueur at an Indian eatery, Indus Valley / Manhattan Valley offers a 'lunch special' which can be had in various permutations and combinations at different prices.

Anniversary dinner: as always, food, service and ambiance. Excellent.

We go here every 3 to 5 months. And are always surprised how good Indian food is.

Excellent

Even though the name changes, the great Indian cuisine remains the same....excellent. I had dinner with a friend on a Friday night at 5:30, and at first we were alone in the restaurant, and then it filled up with several parties and groups, including one with small children. Everyone seemed to have a good time. I had Malai Kafta, and my friend had a chicken curry dish, with vegetable samosa and shrimp as appetizers. Also had yummy potato-stuffed bread...delicious. We thought we were too full for dessert, but somehow we managed to scarf up the rice pudding they brought us as a little "extra". Love this place.

They need to seriously do something about their food. Very sub-par vegetarian curries.

It was a special occasion / Date night. It was a movie theme night. Watched "Victoria & Abdul". Since it had an Indian theme - we went to Indus Valley.

The food is always good. But this time it was exceptional. The service is always friendly

I had asked for a window seat and we got it .

We will definitely go back. It's a neighbourhood gem

The food was superb, and the mulligatawny soup was especially delicious. The place, however, was, all three of us agreed, overheated. We asked for air-conditioning, and they turned it on but only briefly. The same thing happened when we requested it a second time on that humid summer evening.

Best Indian food on the UWS. Nicely spiced, not bland like others. Fine service and hospitable staff. Highly recommended.

Very good weekend buffet but have reservations about continued striking employees outside location due to their unfair treatment of workers. Felt guilt eating there , strikers weren't present on Sunday afternoon otherwise I'd have honored striking employees.

The food, service, and ambiance were very good. However, we dined on a Wednesday evening and discovered that former employees are picketing the restaurant. The information flier we received explained that these people had been cheated by the owner, who changed the name of the restaurant from Indus Valley to avoid payments (we had wondered about the name change). We will not dine at the restaurant again as long as there is an ongoing labor dispute

Fresh, delicious food. Not a super modern ambiance, but for an "everyday" kind of place, not at all necessary--in fact, rather refreshing not to be in a restaurant that is trying really hard to be "hip"...

We had a lovely dinner at Manhattan Valley (FKA Indus Valley). The food was excellent, the service friendly and efficient, and the ginger pepper martini was great. I like to order extra spicy and here the level was kicked up while still preserving the balance of the dish's flavor. I recommend this restaurant highly.

The food here is always delicious and we come very often as it is in our neighborhood. While the portions don't look large, they really are bigger than you think. I'm usually stuffed when I leave! Favorites include Lamb Sagwalla, Malai Tikka Lasooni and Chicken Tikka Masala. Their mulligatawny soup is amazing as well....also very filling as they give you an ample bowlful. I think this is the best Indian restaurant on the upper west side!
