Service was slow. Drinks were not good. Chicken lollipop and somosas were oily. Lamb chops were ok. Butter chicken was good. Biryani was not that great. Not worth the price. Nothing special.

One of the worst experiences.
Worst service and management from hosts Rashmi Patel & Govardhan. They brought the food 1hr30 min after the order was given, they don’t even apologize when we reminded twice, instead they disrespect you by saying it’s not “fast food”. Also, the order was taken 15-20 min after we were seated. In the beginning, the host was advising that we could remove the mask by saying everyone is vaccinated. When questioned if they were checking vaccination cards, she said no and that she just assumes everyone is vaccinated. By the way, the hosts here don’t were masks unlike most other places. Beware, with the delta variant around, if you are a cautious person. I hope the host focused on bringing the food in a timely and orderly manner rather that advising about how the mask is not needed. Would not recommend this place.

A new bartender perfected a Sapphire cocktail with honey & spice. Full bar service with a healthy scotch and fine spirit line.

Professional staff, professional management -

Beautiful setting

Garlic nab - thin, tender, flavorful without being bitting.

An appetizer of filled chili pepper with toasted peanuts and onions ... memory making.

As was a chef’s specialty salmon dish.

Biryani selections... so many worthy of return trips-

House infused spices, mint, chilies - flaming trio of shrimp, lamb and paneer...

Their service needs some serious training. The waiters are not very familiar with their own menu items. The service is slow and prices are very expensive. Their robotic server is honestly useless if the waiter/waitress just follow it to the table. It would make more sense if that robot was used for self serve.

Great service provided by a very attentive staff. Hostess was also very helpful and accomodating.

In Edison, I would say this is a top upscale restaurant for Indian cuisine. Food preparation, presentation and taste all met our very high expectations.

Govardhan, thank you for paying personal attention to our requests.

Pleasant staff but likely overwhelmed waited close to 30 mins before even seeing an employee who could bring us a menu.
The presentation of the food is nice but the biryani lacked any taste at all. The remaining items we had were okay.

Finally a great food place for all foodies out there. Our experience at Deccan Spice Edison was nothing less than spectacular. The place is huge which allowed for ample social distancing and the decor is awesome and creates a great ambiance. Finally “The Food” outstanding, some of our favorites, Deccan Special Chicken Biryani, Chicken pepper, Chicken lollypop and Kadai Chicken. We tried couple of items every time we visited and the mouth watering taste keeps us going back to the place again and again. Very friendly and especially professional staff, the ambience, the food and the nice bar.. at last we have a great place to hang out in New Jersey!!

The food here was good, but not great. The service was extremely uncomfortable; our server kept forcing us to order more and kept stopping by to ask my sister and I about our ethnicities (typical where are you two from but mean cultural wise) and told us we don't look what we are. We all felt super uncomfortable with his questioning and constant pestering. We are also unable to order tap water as they only serve $8 Voss water....I understand it's a higher scale Indian restaurant, but I've been to better places and even they serve tap water. Rice was also not served with any of the dishes and we had to request it, with the server questioning why we wanted rice. The combined experiences will not make us return.

Food was top notch and the ambiance is fancy-modern. The food took an unreasonably long time to come out . However, the servers were attentive and continually refilled our water so that helped. Will go again. Ask about the flaming paneer/chicken/lamb-goat appetizer.

Great ambiance and even better food. The Flaming lamb chops are a must order. Servers were knowledgeable and their service was swift. It gets pretty busy on the weekends so I would definitely recommend reservations.

Great food didn’t get to try much. But the length of bringing food out is something they need to work on. A group next to us got apps before us when they came 20 mins after us. Then never got there dinner 1.5hrs later. So service needs to be worked on in that respect. Took over 20 or so mins to get the check and asking 3/4 times for it. So Deff would try to place again for the food but just hoping the service is better. I think the problem is you have to go earlier they get overwhelmed and can’t handle the traffic load.

We order lamb chops that came on fire. This surprised a lot and even more surprising is the extraordinary taste. Butter chicken reminded me of good old Delhi days.
