Inside table was comfortable and safe. The shrimp dish was delicious the lamb shank was a very small portion for the price and just OK. Wine and cocktails very good

4th time at Baar Baar and the experience never let's me down. Food is amazing, portions are very good, and ambience is always energetic. Appetizers were very authentic with a modern twist. The chicken dishes were amazing including the butter chicken. The whole sea bass in banana leaf was worth every penny! Amazing quality!

We were at Baar Baar 2 months ago and we’re blown away with the quality of the dishes we ordered. We were quite disappointed at our last visit because the dishes we had were subpar. We ordered from the restaurant week menu. The presentation was not as elegant as before. We were wondering there has been a change in the kitchen staff. Only positive note was the attentive service.

Arrived for Restaurant Week and the menu had several good options — notably the pork belly appetizer and the sea bass entree which were delicious. The garlic naan was also the right contrast of flaky to soft. The ambience is more hip and modern than a traditional Indian restaurant, making it a great place for a date night in NYC. Definitely recommended.

We waited 20 minutes past our reservation time to be seated, the maitre’d had to be asked what the wait was about and we had to suggest that we get a drink or appetizer while we waited. They gave us two little puffs that were delicious but again, we had to request them while waiting. Our table was great but loads of crumbs/food on our seats which we ended up wiping away. The food, as always, was terrific but my drink was a huge disappointment. The cocktail was listed as having tequila in it and for some bizarre reason the bartender made it with mezcal, it was disgusting. No apology from the waiter, who seemed like he didn’t particularly care. The replacement drink was totally different from the first and did not taste anything like what we’ve ordered in the past when we’ve gotten the same drink (we’ve been to Baar Baar 4 times). I left nearly all of it and was charged. I’m thrilled that Baar Baar has retained its popularity but their bartending and all overall service were far less than what we’ve experienced in the past.

I enjoyed their menu before Covid, they had some amazing dish. It still has good food but the quality of some of the things in food has dropped since February.

After taking 45 minutes to bring us our entrees after appetizers with few other tables that needed attending to, we noticed our carafe of water had a lipstick stain on it. Unfortunately, we noticed after we had drank most of it. The manager wiped it off and refused to admit it was a lipstick stain but admitted that there was something there. Didn’t apologize for the lack of cleanliness which we found incredibly rude considering our hesitation to go to restaurants at all during the pandemic. Did not appreciate this as I’m pretty sure the owner and her friends were going to the bar area where the carafes were stored to drink directly out of the carafes meant for the restaurants customers.

A really great place to try Indian food expressed in a unique and modern way. For example the lamb keema is a spicy lamb spread that goes perfectly on the rich fluffy bread it’s served with. A great choice for people who don’t usually like lamb. Chicken 65 is a must try; perfectly crisp and lightly spicy. Recommend sharing a few plates for the table.
