The food was delicious as usual
The only issue was the service
My friend had to ask three times for a glass of wine and their English left something to be desired
But authentic always lots of Indians eating there

We enjoyed our prix fixe dinner before going next door to the Laura Pels theatre. The food was delicious and the service is always efficient so that we can make a 7:30 curtain. We usually order different items on the prix fixe menu and share.

Nice location, beautiful dining room and entry, spacious, good service. Prices reasonable for Theater district... We split an entree and had 2 appetizers, naan, and 1 wine for $60! Food was good but nothing special. Garlic naan not hot or very tasty. Probably would not go back.

service both at bar and in restaurant was far above average: pleasant people, helpful and efficient.
The only down side was the catered party which was quite loud in the restaurant. One could still have a conversation but it distracted from an otherwise Great dinner.

I went here with one friend. First of all the place is very spacious and the decor quite elegant and lovely. I ordered a glass of Prosecco which was excellent. The waitress brought a delicious amuse bouche to the table for us. I ordered tandoori lamb chops which was phenomenal, garlic non ( lovely amount of garlic and very tasty) and eggplant bhartha which was one of the best I have ever had. I very, very highly recommend this restaurant.

Delicious menu and very attentive waiters. For 46th Street's central location, the prices were not too high and the food came fresh and appetizing. Loved the decor with the suspended bubble lights and the bathrooms were clean and well-serviced. All in all, an excellent place for a bite before your Broadway show!

My wife and I have been dining at Utsav for many years now. This time the food, service, attention to detail etc. was as good or better than it's ever been. Up until Friday night we had been talking about finding another "neighborhood" Indian restaurant as Utsav had grown stale. Well, that's no longer the case, we're back on board!!!

Food was wonderful. I had the saag paneer which I very highly recommend. The cauliflower (Gobi) appetizer with chili sauce was also excellent. The staff were attentive, helpful, and extremely personable -- they went out of their way to make us comfortable amd it was clear that they wanted us to enjoy the experience. The restaurant is pleasant and comfortable. It is fairly priced (for midtown Manhattan).

The only negative part of the experience was the music. It was much too loud, and included some sort of heavy percussion that was not conducive to a relaxing meal (or to conversation). We asked the restaurant to turn it down and they did but it was still loud (the speakers were in the ceiling right above our heads) and annoying. To be fair, I have eaten there before and didn't notice the music so perhaps it is not a regular thing.

Apart from the music I highly recommend this restaurant.

This was probably my 15th experience. Very unhappy. One of our dishes was the chicken tikki massala. The meat was pink. We’re Jewish and don’t eat pork and I asked the server if it was chicken and she said yes. Both my daughter and I had grizzle. I have grave concerns that it was chicken. It was strips not chunks which I had not recalled from previous dining experiences. The grizzle is unacceptable and chicken strips are not pink, even in the sauce. I questioned the server and knowing she said it was indeed chicken makes me more skeptical and uncomfortable.

Love their Lasuni Gobi.
Tried Aloo Gobi but didn't like it and it was very spicy.
Tried my friends Tandoori Aloo and that was very good and will get next time.
Roop is a lovely and attentive server.
Next door to Pels theatre and get a 15% discount when you present your ticket.
