Indian | Theater District / Times Square, Manhattan

We were staying at a hotel on 37th and 8th Avenue, and we wanted something tasty, reasonably priced, and within easy walking distance. India Kitchen definitely satisfied all of those criteria. The venue is pretty small, so we could sometimes hear more of other people's conversations than would we wanted to. But the food was absolutely delicious. The menu offers a great selection of Indian favorites, the portions were generous, and flavors with rich and complex. In short, really, really good. More

We were looking for great sushi at a reasonable price, and Sushi of Gari 46 came through for us. We ordered two sashimi platters, the regular and the special, to increase our variety and to compare the quality. Both were excellent, but the special truly was special--the finest, melt-in-your mouth cuts, bursting with flavor. This is not inexpensive dining, but the cost felt reasonable to us, so it was a good value. Highly recommended for a special occasion. More

My teenage daughter and I were lucky to get a table on the front porch area (only has 2 tables) which was very lovely. You got the vibe this was a date place based on other people dining around us. My daughter enjoyed her steak and I had a pork chop that was a bit overdone. We both liked our sides. Our server was very attentive and friendly as was other staff. Overall, it was a nice meal prior to our Broadway show. More

We visited Gossip for brunch before a 2pm matinee of Wicked. It was a perfect location, about 2 blocks from the theater. We had a group of 16 people as we were celebrating my daughter's birthday. We had a large table in the back, it was perfect. The food was delicous and VERY reasonable for NYC. Brunch cocktails were $5-7 and specialty coffees were $4-5. Entrees ranged from $12-18. They had a nice kids menu as well. They sang happy birthday to my daughter and provided a delicious chocolate lava cake with icecream, free of charge. The service was not super fast, but with a large group that is to be expected. The waitress and other staff were very friendly. It was not incredibly busy or loud which to me was a good thing. I would definitely visit this place again before or after a show. More

this is a great place for a pre-theatre dinner. The vibe is great and it is informal and friendly. Somehow, although we arrived early our waiter forgot about us so we hurried to finish our entrees in order to get to the theatre on time. The hamburger was delicious and perfectly cooked. Some of the dishes are really too small....a lovely beet salad is very minimal as is the crab cake. Overall, though a good place for pre theatre. Need more places like this More

The waiter and waitress that tended to us were AMAZING, possibly the two nicest and most attentive people in the food industry I've met. They made sure to come around and ask tables if they wanted a picture, that way you didn't feel awkward asking for a few in the different lightings before sunset and after. Also, they asked us if we were here for any reason and we said it was our anniversary. For desert (which was the best course) they brought over a chocolate cake for no charge along with the desert we had already ordered. It was so generous and kind and really made out night!! More

My granddaughter and I enjoyed a pre-theater meal at this restaurant. We started with stuffed grape leaves- very good. I had the vegetable moussaka and my granddaughter had a pork dish with flavored French fries- both dishes were very good. We finished the meal with baklava and galaktobourako which were both delicious. I would recommend this place- not overly expensive, plentiful portions and tasty food. More

Waiter was slow to engage so there was a delay in placing drink and food orders. Once he “noticed” us service was fine with friendly and accommodating staff. Caldo Gallego, gazpacho and gambas al ajillo were all very good. Paella Valenciana could have used a bit more saffron, but otherwise portion size, quantity of ingredients (seafood, chicken, chorizo), presentation and degree of cooking were all spot on. More

Indian | Theater District / Times Square, Manhattan

We were staying at a hotel on 37th and 8th Avenue, and we wanted something tasty, reasonably priced, and within easy walking distance. India Kitchen definitely satisfied all of those criteria. The venue is pretty small, so we could sometimes hear more of other people's conversations than would we wanted to. But the food was absolutely delicious. The menu offers a great selection of Indian favorites, the portions were generous, and flavors with rich and complex. In short, really, really good. More

Victor's food was delicious. We had the PONLE ROPA A LA VACA the Ropa Vieja and Vaca Frita Duo. It was really very good but the portion was small for the $30 price tag. The Yucca fries were amazing with a savory dipping sauce that we loved. The Arroz con Pollo was also delicious and a more ample portion than the Ropa dish. Good cocktails, great atmosphere, and top notch service. More
