    We had a party of five that I made reservations for over a month ago. They ended up squeezing us into a 4 top, which would have been fine if we weren’t the only table in the entire restaurant. They could have seated us at a 6 top so we would have been more comfortable. It’s a BYO, but they don’t provide ice buckets to keep your wine cold. When I asked for one, we were given a pitcher full of ice. Food was fine and the staff was nice.

    This place is fantastic. The ambiance is a tradition Indian family restaurant with food that is honestly the best Indian food that I have had in the city. I am mad that I haven’t eaten here sooner. The samosa chat is a must have app.

    This was my second visit to The Place of Indian, this time there were six of us. One of my friends was a vegetarian and one had glutton allergies and was delighted to find an entire page of vegetarian and glutton free meals. The rest of us had lamb, salmon, chicken and a goat dish. Every dish was fresh, hot and cooked exactly how we requested for taste, mild, medium and very hot. They always ask how you want it when you place your order. We also ordered appetizers Papadum, mixed Pakara and Garlic Shrimp and two different types of Naan Bread, Rosemary and Peshwary. This is a BYOB so bring your own wine, staff is very friendly and helpful and the prices are very reasonable. We are making this one our favorite restaurants.

    My friends and I loved this BYOB Restaurant and it was our lucky night because we found a parking space 1-1/2 block away. The restaurant was small and intimate and very pretty, the menu was like a book. The host greeted us wishing my friend happy birthday because we said that on our open table reservation. The waitress asked as we were ordering how we wanted our dishes mild, medium or hot and the dishes were perfect to suit every taste. The food was fresh, hot and delicious. It was 4 of us and we ordered an appetizer of Papadum and two different kinds of bread one made with rose petals. Between us we had the Chicken Tikka Marsala, Tandoori Salmon, Goat Biryani and Goat Palak, the bill was under $100.

    My family and I enjoyed our dinner here for my birthday this week so much! We started with delicious Samosas, always a must in my book, and Pakora, followed by our entrees. I had the Palak Paneer at medium heat which I ate every bite of. Medium is spicy, but yummy! Go here and try something… the service was quick and attentive
