Some of the best Indian cuisine I’ve had. On top of that, the waiters are so accommodating and friendly. Definitely going back
Usually the food is excellent, tonight must have been an off night. But it’s normally delicious! I’ll come back again soon love this place
Excellent food and great value for money!
Great Indian food with large portions and attentive service
Dinner with friends. Was nice. Ate outdoors so didn’t get as good a sense of the inside ambiance.
Great authentic food. Excellent service.
Pippali never disappoints. The food is always well prepared and delicious. The staff are professional and always helpful if you need assistance selecting an item for lunch, brunch or dinner. My favorite dishes include their lamb biryani and tandoori chicken but their appetizers are sure to please.
Love the service and food here. Nothing negative to report. I’ve tried most items on the menu and each time the experience was beyond. Highly recommend.
Very friendly and thoughtful service. Fun cocktails. Tasty. Very good food. Creative use of spices. Generous portions. Standout fishers were: chili shrimp appetizer, Eggplant vegetarian entree (outstanding), Raita (best I’ve had), Punjabi goat and Lamb shank Rohan Gosh. Highly recommend. Signed, a foodie
The service and food never fail. Excellent cocktail list as well.
This is my new favorite Indian restaurant. The food is fabulous and the service attentive, but not intrusive. My only issue on my last experience was that has a band playing which ruined the atmosphere and it was hard to hear each other over the music. I would check next time I go as it was the first time I have experienced that. Otherwise, it's brilliant.
Great service, amazing staff, and the food was outstanding.
I can't really say...we made the rez, but when we got there the place was closed. We went next door to Bhatti and had a delicious lunch special!
Restaurant was closed even though we had a confirmation and kept receiving reminders and notifications. How about updating your hours or making a courtesy call so we change our reservation??!!
Amazing food / felt very safe as they were taking precautions during Covid. Ordered Butter Chicken and Chicken Vindaloo.
Incredible food and balanced cocktails
We were a party of seven and all agreed that our meal at Pippali was excellent, from the cocktails to the food. We were treated to super attentive and kind service and the heat outside was well distributed so that we all managed to eat without being distracted by the cold. The outside setting is also nicely decorated, adding to a lovely ambience. The food was some of the best I have had in the area - the biryani particularly was a hit with everyone. We’ll be back - this has become a family favorite.
Went to Pippali to celebrate my friend’s birthday. Overall it was a good dinner - the food were scrumptious and the service was good.
I mean absolutely amazing. Best samosas I ever had outside Girl Scout cookies. Food was amazing, service was perfect, I highly recommend getting the desert with the rose syrup.
Great service and some of the best Indian food in all of downtown. Wish they had better social engagement since their food is so good.
Place was closed, even though the reservation was confirmed. Bad customer experience.
Aside from the amazing food our waiter Khalid was great. He made our anniversary feel special.
Overall good experience. However the restaurant that took a reservation at 12pm (opening time) wasn’t set up and ready to take guests for 15 mins. So we just had to hang around for that amount of time until they set up. After that the experience was good as staff was friendly and food was very good.
Always a winner, the food is delicious and the service is always friendly. They have carefully met all the requirements to make customers dining outdoors comfortable and safe during COVID-19. We started out with a chaat, then had tandoori chicken, biryanis, jaipuri kofta and naan. Highly recommend Pippali.
Amazing food and service. Food takes a little longer to come out but that’s how I know it’s fresh. Enjoy the ambience while you wait. You won’t regret it!
Great food and even better service. Friendly and accomodating. Beautiful outdoor seating.
We were visiting NYC and found Pippali online. They were delightful! I have gluten and dairy issues. So dining out can be a struggle. The waiter carefully explained the menu and which dishes would meet my needs. The food was fantastic and the servers were very kind! Best part was I had no stomach ache after. I most definitely will go back when I’m in the city again.
Food was just ok. Nothing special or memorable. We went specifically for Thali and the quality was disappointing especially the paneer... it just wasn’t fresh. The worst part was the food was delivered within 5 minutes of ordering . We had ordered mango lassi’s and just wanted to chat and relax but everything was rushed and there were empty tables so there was no real reason for the frenetic pace. We won’t go back.
Thank you for our special birthday gesture😌.
Great food and service as always but the music was way too loud and also inappropriate. Playing techno dance music at 6pm in a relaxed restaurant is quite off putting and kinda spoiled the evening. Try and make it more subdued and it’ll be perfect.
Great service and delicious food and delicious drinks too
Really nice North Indian food, well prepared and presented. The food is not at all spicy--so if that is what you like, Pippali is for you.
Very enjoyable dinner for two, I'd go again. The green chili chicken appetizer was delicious. The breads were excellent. The Chettinad Duck entree was good but the fat was too chewy, could have been better.
Typically I've been going to Pipalli for years for the deliciousTali they serve at lunch. Dinner much to my delight was equally terrific with a wonderful selection of vegetarian dishes.
A bit crowded, with several large parties when we were there. That might be the season. Service a little too quick, but the food was good.
Best Indian food in the neighborhood. Great service
Delicious authentic Punjabi food. The staff is very attentive and kind. Will definitely be returning.
