Great food, and even though the restaurant was very busy, service was attentive and timely. The food was good to very good, but one should never order it for take-out/delivery - it's too delicate to be dragged all over the Upper West Side.

We love the food here. We live in a neighborhood with hundreds of restaurants all around us, and this one consistently has delicious food at reasonable prices.

The food is really good, tasty and served in good quantity. The staff is super friendly and really made sure we had a good moment. And it was so quiet, perfect for a date. Love it and will go back.

Very modest prices for NYC, low-key and comfortable. One friend and I had the vegetarian lunch combo, the other the combo with lamb. We loved the food and had a great conversation--low noise to permit this is very important to me.

The service was prompt and attentive and the food was authentic and well prepared. My only quibble would be over the samosas that looked and tasted more like crispy spring rolls but were quite delicious nonetheless. The puri and roti were outstanding as was the curry and the Basmati rice. The ingredients were high quality which made a real difference. The lamb was tender and lean and the chicken tasty as was the chic pea and spinach curry. Having had many Indian meals over the years I am a relatively good judge and this place gets relatively high marks.

Another consistently yummy meal! Excellent service! And- you can have a conversation, as the noise level is low. Beautiful light fixture and cloth tablecloths provide a good atmosphere. We love the Goan fish curry, palak panir and all the appetizers. Recommend!

The food was fresh, flavorful and well-prepared. The spinach in our saag-based dishes was bright green, tasty and a good texture- not thin or brown. The garlic naan was soft and pillowy. Both vegetarian and meat-based dishes were excellent- some Indian restaurants excel in one or the other. The service was beyond excellent- they accommodated us earlier than our reservation because we had an event after and, glory be, when I left my credit card upon paying, it was waiting for me upon return.

Had my birthday here a few nights ago and was quite happy. I booked a reservation for nine but we ended up being a party of ten and the restaurant, which is small, found a way to accommodate us. Food was excellent and well-priced, and there were options for my vegan guests. I highly recommend it!

It's a mixed bag: spiffy digs, exemplary service, but lamb chops were served well-done when medium rare was specified; take-home food was placed in the wrong bag so the vegetarian folks went home with a passable lamb vindaloo; great appetizers matched with less-than-great main courses due to dry/overcooked meat.

Everything we ordered was delicious. Service excellent, friendly and efficient. Got our food in record time. Good sized portions — we shared one order each of basmati rice and garlic naan along with our entrees and it was plenty for two. Will definitely return and bring friends. Our new favorite restaurant!

We went there for lunch. They have specials on Thali lunches that are quite reasonably priced. You get many small dishes, including dessert. Very very good! I have found dishes that I never would have ordered that I now always do! Excellent service too- as always.
