Everything we ordered was very good! There were no many diners while we were there so cannot comment on how the service would be if it were busy. The manager/owner waited the table, we were not rushed. He was very courteous and helpful. Definitely recommend to those that want to have good Indian cuisine without the fanfare and crowds.

This place is a gem! First time at Papadam....it was delicious. The waiter made some recommendations on appetizers, steering us away from the usual samosa choice and I am glad we listened. The Hyderabadi eggplant dish I had was amazing. Again not a standard dish and I'm glad I ventured into unknown territory. The staff was very helpful and on top of everything. If you like Indian food or want to try it for the first time...give Papadam a look.

Papadam is the best Indian cuisine my daughters and I have had the opportunity to eat. We had the chance to go in for dinner this evening and not only were the owners and staff warm and welcoming, they gave excellent food suggestions. In fact, we let one of the owners pick our complete meal for us and ALL selections were amazing! A great atmosphere with the combination of wonderful food and genuinely fantastic people you can not go wrong.
Nothing but great things to say about Papadam and I suggest everyone take the opportunity to let them tailor your dinner for the night - you won't be disappointed.

While Papadam's dishes are, without question, delectable, the portion size is often somewhat stingy, especially when juxtaposed to the amount of delicious sauce served with most items. This can detract from the value, but not the quality of the service or the manner in which your taste buds are energized. The fresh breads are very special and tasting many types is worthwhile. This is an enjoyable evening. A particularly nice aspect of this small eatery is if you have not eaten enough, the kitchen fulfills your additional orders expeditiously. Eat, be happy!

Our usual restaurant closed and we were trying to find another. Papadum has delicious authentic Indian food and we will definitely be back often! The home made mango mousse was delicious. they deliver too! The owners were there and were taking orders and serving customers. Very welcoming people.

I LOVE this restaurant!!! It is in my neighborhood and had walked by it several times thinking one day I would go. Well when friend suggested dinner I made this the opportunity to go and try this restaurant. And they did not disappoint. We ordered a bottle of Chilean wine which was perfect for the meal. When we ordered appetizers, the owner came over and asked if she could suggest some. She suggested Hari Bari Tikki and Lasuni Gobi, both not traditional dishes. They were out of this world and both vegetarian. We both then ordered dinner; I ordered Hyderabadi Baghare Baigan (I am a vegan) and my friend ordered Griller Tilapia in Tandoori Oven. My friend said the Tilapia was out of this world, it was light, seasoned just enough, and surprisingly is seemed like it was fried because it has a crispness to it, but it was in fact grilled and broiled, a chef specialty. The service was friendly, and attentive and the restaurant was cozy, not noisy at all. I would suggest it highly to anyone who like Indian food.

Great food, subtle flavors and gracious service led by the kindness of Ajay and his staff leaving you wanting to come back for more. There just are not that many really, really good local Indian restaurants on the UES, but, finally, there is Papadam. I'll be back!!

The ambience is warm and the owners very nice and accommodating. The food was delicious and plentiful. Also, even though it isn't a kid restaurant my young children really like the food. The wait staff was efficient and very nice.
