El local es muy neutro, sin nada remarcable. El servicio es supercordial y amable. La comida es sabrosa pero he probado mucho mejores. El precio, tomando en cuenta lo anterior, esta por encima de la media.

Great restaurant for a family meal or a date night. Good service, slightly limited bar, but the food was excellent. My in laws are Indian and rarely eat out at Indian restaurants and we all loved it. The butter chicken is AMAZING. Phaal hot curry sauce is better to order as a side, and then add to the other dishes.

Food is absolutely delicious and for the $$ the helpings are good. The menu appears on the pricier side at first glance but the tasty food and generous portions actually make up for it. We sat outside (one of two tables) due to covid times but the ambience of this street just sucks. Loud traffic and screaming hobos. Highly unpleasant. This place is ideal for ordering in from (I didn’t check out the interior). The food i’d say is top notch! They even gave us a complimentary dessert(yummy). My friend and I split the paneer tikka masala and nilghiri curry (which I’ve never had before but was mind blowing). Definitely would order from here but to take out and not dine -in (at least not outside) - can’t say about their indoor though. Food is A++

I had never been to this restaurant but was looking for a place to reserve outdoor dining. Their outdoor set up is too exposed for recent temperatures (though they have heaters), so we ate inside and it was like a dream of beforetimes. Except that there were only two other tables, maybe three at one point. So it was quiet, service was great, and the food there is excellent. Also, the wine list is decent and so well priced. I'll be back again.

Since the lock down we have not been able to eat indoors. It was a real treat not only to have Indian food for the 1st time in nearly 6 months but have delicious Indian food indoors! There's pretty much nothing on the menu that's bad it's all tasty and served fresh.

We didn't realize the restaurant had recently moved and had no alcohol licence (BYOB).

We didn't have to wait for our table (promptly seated)

As a part of six, we ordered a varied selection of appetizers entrees from vegan to lamb. The pankora was good. The onion bahji was a bit sorry in the middle. The lamb and veggie samosas were good. The chutney portions were sparse. The vegan daal option was very flavorful. The green curry chicken was excellent. The lamb gravy was very good but the meat was a bit tough.. The accompanying rice was marginal.

First time here, there was few customers. Quiet, clean, had butter chicken masala. It was delicious, very tasty, chicken was tender., similar to the one I had at Bombay Club in DC. Decent price. You just have to BYOD..the site was misleading, we could have bring wine if we have known. We settled for can of soda. Overall, great food.

Simply delicious. I’ve paid considerable more for the same quality. I had the lamb madras, garlic naan and a side of rice. Full of flavor.
The service could not have been better throughout the whole evening. Highly recommend.

Too much like a cafeteria; lacked ambiance. Too much light.
No substitutions were available, which is important.
Food was way too spicy. If you shun rice, you’re out of luck.
Portions were decent. No okra veg dish available, which was disappointing. Expensive for Indian.

Informal and friendly -- enjoyed our table by the window. Excellent tandoori and curry (Goan). Perfect for dinner before a show at LaMama around the corner.

Food was good not great. Flavor profiles from seasoning was where they should be but the meat was not right. Chicken Biriyani use boneless cubed white meat which was dry. The Raita helped a lot and enhanced the dish. Lamb in the curry was a little tough (not braised long enough at low temp)and dry also as the cut used was leg/butt not shoulder or shank. The cauliflower Gobi appetizer was very good. Service was fine but kitchen seemed slow. Was not busy when we went

It had just moved one block south to its new location and Open Table didn't have the correct address (79 Second Ave.) but it was great food, pleasant decor and atmosphere and friendly staff. Perfect pre-theater for LaMama or NYTW

Absolutely awful. Had a very surly waitress, who felt like she was doing us a favor. I was sooooo excited about going because I’m from England & am familiar with Brick Lane. The meal was one of the worst experiences I’ve ever had. Will not go back or refer.
