The drinks were imbalanced and not smooth .. out of the apps only jackfruit cutlet was good .. the other two tuna toastadas and paneer weren’t as good …

Waited 3 hours to get food. They were gracious enough to give us free food for the wait but still not making it a good experience at all.

Great place, however the service is super slow even on a non busy night. Our bill was exchanged with another guest as well. So nit sure whats happening even though they were not busy.

The food was complex, creative and had a balanced level of spiciness. Very nice selection of vegetarian dishes. Wines were not exorbitant by New York standards. The service was attentive and genuinely warm, not obsequious. We will go back!

It was frustrating in the beginning because I especially made a reservation to dine indoors but the host told me they can’t accommodate us and we’ve to sit wherever a table is available.

Really nice decor and ambience. Food was really good. Great restaurant week deal, although my cocktail was definitely overpriced at $17 for an old fashioned. Overall though I would come back with friends.

Awesome awesome food! Each dish was so perfect and great. Black Dairy Daal is best in New York. Kolkata Jackfruit Cutlet was absolutely to the point. Dahi Puri is so yum! Drinks were great as well. Highly recommend!

Food was mouth-watering! The quality definitely matched up with the pricepoint. Although we did get the restaurant week special, I would come back again and pay full price for the food. The service was meh, but it was a Friday during restaurant week, so I am not suprised by the wait times. Overall great restaurant, would eat again.

I absolutely love Baar Baar. The food is amazing. Really cannot find any faults except that one of the hostess was extremely rude. She made us wait for half an hour despite the face that we had a reservation. I literally had to put up a fight in order to be seated. That’s just ridiculous

The Restaurant Week menu was diverse and delicious. Lovely flavors and textures. I especially enjoyed the fusion of the entrees. The restaurant ambience with soft lights, steady beat music and artwork makes for a perfect dining environment.

They didn’t put the candle in the desert like i suggested on the open table app. I think it’s more an issue with open table and their communication with restaurants.

Poor service, and AC was not working. Too hot inside.

Good drinks and appetizers.

Biryani - good quality, but flavor profile missed the mark. It was more like a spicy pulav. Definitely some work needed.

Insanely good! Restaurant Week was a great time to see what all the hype was about. It was honestly so fun and such fun little twists on everything. Would highly recommend their version of the Old Fashioned!
They have such a great menu of vegan and vegetarian food, especially the jackfruit.
So great and such a good time-- highly recommend.

Chicken swimming in grease with a birds nest on top and the promised lemon cream had zero lemon flavor and was a decoration on the birds nest with no chance of use with the chicken. Oily jackfruit cutlet. Onion and Sishito Kulcha with no noticeable onion and a red paste inside plus pepper on top and not inside.

We made a reservation, got checked in and were requested to wait at the bar for 15 minutes because there were “no tables available.” We took the next available table but the shock of needing to wait for a table, not because it was being cleaned/prepared but because all the tables were given away, made the experience start off poorly. The food was tasty and drinks were good but we asked for a simple modification (swap the tequila in the margarita for mezcal) and were denied because the drinks were pre-made. I would say the drinks are over-priced for being pre-made and bartenders unable to make fresh drinks at the customers request. Overall, the food was good, service/experience not so great, therefore I wouldn’t return.

While the food was great the service can be improved. We were requested to move tables during dinner which made our dinner order to be missed which caused our food to arrive about an hour after our order. To the server/managers credit they brought us a couple of drinks on the house. But, when we reordered a side of bread, this again took about half an hour, only for the waiter to realize that our order had been missed all over again. Would love for the restaurant to have more servers and better tracking of orders

Went with friends - menu was unique and fun but we wanted suggestions from our waitress which she did not give / had a hard time explaining how much food we should order.

Cocktail menu is very fun - $17 each though & the bar was pretty backed up. We didn’t even have time for our last cocktail because they were strict with the 90 minutes per table.

The food we choose was phenomenal - the chicken tikka + cheese in bread was the best way to start + the pork belly + cauliflower.

Service was SO tough - never received water refills, different waiters staff kept asking if we already got our appetizers, and they tried to clear our plates when we were eating 3+ times.

The Restaurant Week menu options were plentiful with lots of choices. The portions were great, the flavors were wonderful, and I hear the pork belly was so tender, you were able to eat it with a spoon!

We went there to try their restaurant week menu. We also tried their cocktails which were very good! Food was delicious, great presentation. Great ambiance but the music is loud indoors and outdoors, but some people may prefer that. Still, It was a great experience!

Starters took over an hour to come. Second course took another 30 minutes.

Because the food took so long we were rushed to eat because they needed to close the restaurant.
