Terrific and interesting Indian food! Great cocktails! Colorful decor! Weekend "brunch" is really a lunch menu of many of their dinner options, plus others just for lunch. Highly recommended! Go early for a quiet meal, or later for an "energetic" scene!
Creative menu, excellent service, delicious meal!
Highly recommend it!
Great food. Very interesting menu. Loved the decor. A bit noisy, but hey, it's Soho!
I only wish the large plates were actually large. Everything was delicious but the size of our large plate was the same as the small so I'm not sure what made it large (besides price).
Very well-made, nicely spiced Indian. Feels a bit nickel and diming to pay for rice, etc, given modest portions.
Food is insanely good!
This restaurant is amazing!! Creative and delicious cuisine. Warm atmosphere and great service!
Even better than the last time we visited. The menu is always changing so that we can sample new dishes, and the old favorites like the lamb sandwich and the black pepper shrimp keep us coming back for more. Far from resting on his laurels, Chef Cardoz is always experimenting with new flavors and combinations and we love being his guinea pigs. Bravo.
Above average pricey food, beyond terrible service.
An interesting restaurant with reasonable small and large plates however the bread was underwhelming. Naan and rotis should be light and fluffy but these were dense and over cooked. We had the chaat, three chilli chicken and chicken tikka all of which were very good. The dal was average at best. Overall an interesting experience but not sure I would revisit.
food was good but shared portions were on the smaller side
From what we’d read, we expected that it would be good. But it far exceeded our expectations! The food was second to none, and the fun ambience makes this a place to not be missed!
Food was bad. Cocktails were terrible. Given this is an expensive spot don't see any reason to go back. Place looks good though.
This restaurant is totally overrated. There’s much better food in Curry Hill. My wife was given a tiny glass of wine which was not cheap. Such a ripoff. Anywhere is better than this!
Great decors, and really amazing creative food, a modern take on Indian cuisine. Some mistakes and a bit of wait time from the waiter. But other than that really great place!
The restaurant is too busy filling up tables to figure out what good customer service means. The lackadaisical attitude towards improving experience is appalling. The food isn't anything great either. With the choices available in NYC, absolutely no reason to come back to this place.
Food and service was mediocre and expensive, it took 50minutes between appetizer and entree unacceptable!!
This was the worst service we have experienced in as long as we can remember. There were no less than three different servers presiding over our table. The first was inattentive and mailing it in. The second was inept and incompetent. The third was ... well, does it even matter? Cocktail- which took forever - arrived in chipped martini glass. We returned and after 20 min - no exaggeration - it hadn’t been replaced. A manager then brought it out and told us it was on the house. Meanwhile, the food had already arrived. Someone else ordered a beer. It was not properly chilled (out of the bottle). We returned it. Again, fifteen min. passed. Flagged a manager who retrieved it. Again, on the house. Ordered dessert and coffee. They dropped the order. Room is ridulosuly loud. Obviously, service is a disaster. Poorly managed and staffed. Food was an afterthought given the consistent and recurrent distractions brought on by the staff.
Good food but overpriced
Amazing food and the staff were friendly and helpful!
Awesome food, attentive service, really interesting cocktails! Loved it.
Overall, it's a cool place. Interesting Indian fusion menu. The small plates are a good format for trying different dishes. A few improvements should be not using cups to store the flatware because they keep crashing down and offering a better Indian wine. Other than that, it was a good experience.
When we arrived they were already out of samosas, probably best item on menu. We found it way too noisy and food was average, surely better Indian restaurants nearby.
Worst Indian restaurant I have ever been to. The food was flavorless and disgusting and high priced for such small portions. The service was also horrible. Our server couldn't recommend a wine because she new nothing about their very limited wine selection. We asked to speak to the manager in regards to the wine and she said he was too busy so she read us the descriptions from a book. She also had an attitude the rest of the night. Floyd Cardoz should be ashamed of himself. Super disappointed and I would never dine in one of his restaurants again...he failed on this one for sure.
Food was mediocre. A couple of the stuffed breads were good. The others pretty unauthentic. The dal was super disappointing as was the haleem. Chili chicken fry was certainly chilli. The food needs to be tightened up. I thought a lot of it was just mailed in.
The alcohol was very expensive .
The service was slow
The food was either tasteless or extremely spicy .
We would not come back.
Management essentially held us hostage for over half an hour because their credit card processor was down. No explanation until we raised hell and paid cash.
Bland food needs more spice to match the fun decor
The items I wanted to try and that I went for were unavailable
Which was a real let down
They need to update their site
A very poor choice of vegetarian items which is odd for an Indian restaurant
It was amazing. The only thing is we were sat behind a pole and the waitress kept on forgetting about us, but it was very busy so I understand!
Definitely worth a try. The meats were a little saucy and the communication about allergens wasn't clear, just the place is cute and food pretty great.
I loved Paowalla and the food is now quite bland. We were disappointed sadly.
Very average food. A far cry from the excellent Pao Walla. What a shame. Ignored by server for 15 minutes before finally getting a menu. Food was just pitiful.
Our lunch was a disaster. We were celebrating a very special birthday and while I had noted in the reservation that it was a birthday, no one alerted me to an $8pp cake cutting fee. Mind you the desserts were not traditional and were very expensive ($15 for 3 scoops of kulfi.) The owner eventually negotiated the cake fee down to $6pp for adults only ($30 in the end) but the limited menu and spotty service turned our celebration into a very stressful event. The food was ok overall, some good dishes but a couple that were simply awful. Our waiter seemed to be really trying, apologetic and sympathetic. They were however understaffed and he was quite stressed. It was because of him that they were able to reduce the cake cutting fee. I am never going back here again and do not recommend this place for any reason.
The menu was limited which made ordering easy. Love that they offer small plates. The food was delicious.
Great food. lousy service. Someone else's food was delivered to our table. Then our food was delivered peace meal to us, but every dish was excellent.
I so wanted to like this place but my excitement was short lived on seeing the menu. It’s a over hyped place. Food is average. 5-6 times overly priced alcohol.
Fun and lively. Perfect place to go on a Saturday night as a group of 6-- tasted everything and it was all delicious.
My outing here was extremely disappointing, primarily because of the terrible service from our waitress. I need to preface by saying that the bussing staff was delightful and the managers hostesses were also very pleasant in their interactions. I wish I could tell you her name, but she didn't even properly introduce herself. She was impatient and outwardly annoyed with our questions about the menu. In my opinion, if you work in hospitality, you should take any and all questions (even ones you think are repetitive/dumb) with a smile – but especially when you work somewhere that does "unique takes" on already unique cuisine, I think you need to have a higher tolerance for questions. In addition to being curt about questions, she was off-puttingly aggressive about how much food we should order. We wanted to put in our first 6 or 7 plates first and then see how we felt but she was insistent on wanting us to order more upfront. Perhaps, somewhere deep down she had our best interests at heart because she's seen people order too little too many times before, but she didn't come across as trying to be helpful, she was rude and condescending. At one point she literally said (with a scowl) "so what are you doing to do?"... ultimately, we ordered ONE additional dish and for the record, we all were PLENTY full at the end of our meal. Between taking our order and bringing the check, we probably saw her 2 more times, tops, then she hastily slammed down the can with the check onto our table with out making any eye contact and we didn't see her again (a busser brought back our cards and thanked us). On top of this, the food was extremely expensive and not a great value – in my opinion – it wasn't BAD food, it just wasn't worth what was being charged. Had the price of the food been the only issue, I still might (MIGHT) recommend someone to go there because the atmosphere and aesthetic is cool, but after how we were treated I will be telling people to avoid it at all costs!
Overall, I expected more from the food. For a place that purports to be a 'bread' bar, their breads were easily below par. The naan was only okay (you can get similar or better at most Indian restaurants), and the lachcha paratha was legitimately bad. However, the service was good, and some of the other food was pretty good - so, I'd still give it a 3 out of 5 overall.
