                                                      The roof started leaking one table away from us during our meal. The food is extremely over priced for the quality. Service was bad and we didn’t get everything we ordered

                                                      Great food (especially the tandoori) but poor service. They basically have two waiters/waitresses servicing the entire restaurant. Good luck trying to get their attention.

                                                      I used to love Dhaba. The portions were generous and the service was good. Unfortunately they changed. The portions are now small, rice is no longer included in the entrée, and the service is bad. Our server was obnoxious and inconvenient during the entire meal. We were trying to have a meal with a small group of friends and he kept trying to interact and grab our attention in the worst way possible. He also managed to spill food all over the table, my coat, sweater and my pants. No formal apology was provided by the restaurant, who treated the situation very casually. Would not recommend.

                                                      I am an Indian food snob having grown up eating every day, home cooked by my mother. This meal was exquisite. We ordered all of my favorites, Rogan Josh, chicken tikka, bhindi, garlic and regular naan, parata — every single thing was wonderful.

                                                      Music too loud for conversation. Food okay, but was expecting better based on all the rave reviews.

                                                      We order from Dhaba all the time and love the food. This time we went for a group dinner with friends & the it has nice atmosphere and lighting. The food never disappoints- all our friends loved the diverse choices of entrees. Our favorite is this insanely tasty smokey eggplant entree, Baigan da Bartha. It was a perfect evening to reconnect with friends, have fun and share great Indian food.

                                                      Our favorite Indian food spot in NYC. I've never had a bad dish there. Big fan of the roasted mushroom appetizer. Chicken dishes are also wonderful, including the korma, tikka masala. The British style dishes are good too, but just as a warning, they are HOT.
