I love Awadh! We have several Indian restaurants in our UWS neighborhood but Awadh is definitely a cut above! Beautifully appointed, great wine list and excellent food. We had 4 small plates for 2 of us for brunch - the cauliflower was a bit more sweet than I had remembered but the minced lamb patties were outstanding!

We enjoyed our meal. Staff was very accommodating. The food was tasty and spiced nicely. We found some of the portions to be somewhat small and didn't allow us to share amongst the four who were dining.
We had several appetizers all were excellent: Murgh Parda Kebab, Poti Samosa, Malai Lobster Marsala (this was the weakest of the entrees, poorly spices, Lemon Rice, Sufiana Murgh Biryaani, Nan, Kulchas, and for dessert we had Rosmali.
The lobster dish was bland and lacked creativity. The breads were good but came out warm not hot.
I think we will continue to explore the Indian Restaurants in New York before returning.

Simon our host was warm and gracious. The food is creative and delicious. I ordered vegetable biryani and requested raisins added and they made it perfectly with a fabulous touch I've never had on biryani...it was served in a crock pot with a warm fluffy nan-like crust. Soooo good. The khaas paneer tikka (herbed cottage cheese served grilled) and chapati gobhi lehsuni (cauliflower in garlic tomato sauce) were both unique and excellent. The chicken tikka as good as it gets. Plus the setting is really pretty. A lovely meal overall.

Having read positive reviews, a friend and I decided to try out Awadh but were very disappointed. We're both fond of Indian food and have eaten plenty of it, but we both found the version at Awadh strangely bland. I don't mean just not hot/spicy but also simply lacking in flavor. Maybe the lack of seasoning is a regional matter, but for whatever reason the food just didn't have much character. We tried the Dalach Palak Kebab (lentil/spinach appetizers) and thought they might as well be mashed potatoes. In addition, Awadh is strangely overpriced, nearly every dish a few dollars more than other comparable Indian restaurants, which adds up. Truly, the food at the Indian place up the street on Broadway at 103rd is quite a bit tastier.

Came here for my boyfriend's birthday. Food was excellent. Ordered the samosas, lobster and the shrimp curry, both amazing. When looking at the menu, I was a bit hesitant because they did not have mango chutney, which is my favorite side, but when I asked the host/waiter, they did have it. Amazing food as well as service. Will definitely be returning.

Excellent high-end Indian food. The location/space doesn't really do the cuisine justice, as this is really top quality that you would pay a lot more for if it were down town in a hip space. The location and space take away from the high-end feel, but that's OK because the prices reflect that in my view (more expensive than standard Inidan, like Manhattan Valley, but less than other top-of-the-line Indian restaurants in the City. Portions are small, rice and naan are extra. The food is fantastic.

Indian food, with a twist. This is a spicier, version from Northern India, with some different dishes and some different flavors.

The portions were a bit small--we were four people and in some cases, sharing meant a very small taste. You expect that with an appetizer, but not with a main course.

That being said, I'd definitely return.

We aren't experts in Indian cuisine, but our saag paneer and vegetarian biryani here were as good as any we've had elsewhere. Portions were generous enough that we took leftovers home for supper the next night. We sat upstairs which was quite quiet and afforded a nice view outside. Service was fine. We will certainly return here when we next have a longing for Indian food.

Rather a mixed experience. The best dish was the baby eggplant - and it was fabulous: creamy texture; a rich sauce that wasn't too rich. A real winner. Unfortunately, nothing else that we tried lived up to the eggplant. Next in quality: the pappadum and its accompaniments were very good, as were the breads. The chicken in the tariwala was overcooked, but the sauce itself was delicious. The lentil and spinach patties were disappointing - not a great texture and not much taste, certainly no spinach flavor. The galouti kebab was also disappointing - no discernible lamb flavor, slighly mushy texture. The chicken biryani was very nicely presented, but again had overcooked chicken.

Food met our expectations but service was appalling. There were 4 tables occupied on the ground floor and the restaurant could not cope with the rush!!!
No one came by to ask us for drink orders and, after 10 minutes, we hailed one of the servers passing by . Similarly to request some papads.
We had to hail a server to tell them we were ready to order .
Finally, when the bill came, we found they had overcharged us.
Thankfully, the food was above average so we might go back one day---but not in a rush .
