We have come here for many years and most recently after a year and a half due to the pandemic. We have been finding that the main ingredients in the entrees that are in sauces are very meager with not enough main ingredient whether chicken or lamb and too much sauce. And given the prices this does not seem to be right. And this time the samosas which we generally like were much too pasty. Is something going on in the kitchen? We 'll probably give them another try but it may turn out to be the last.

Large upstairs dining room with windows facing two sides of the building on Ave of America’s. We chose four standard dishes from the menu and all were tasty without overwhelming heat or spicier. Seated promptly and served well by conscientious staff. Nothing fancy, just authentic, pleasant, reminiscent of meals past in South Asia.

Great service. Waiter gave me & hubby a big table for just us. Came over every few minutes to check on us and make sure we were comfortable. If you love Indian food this spot is the best place to be. This was my second time here & I love it. Perfect view and very clean. I can’t wait to have more experiences here with my hubby.

Had a delicious meal at Utsav on Thursday evening. Our waiter Kevin was extremely helpful with recommending the most scrumptious dishes. The service was top notch!

The air conditioner could have been better, but overall had a great time at Utsav and will surely return for the great tasting food!

What an amazing anniversary celebration at Utsav! I am getting addicted to this food haven. We were dying for Utsav's new Indo-Chinese food along with our usual traditional favorites. Wow! I was transported back to Bar-B-Q in Kolkata (India), who I think are the true pioneers of popularizing Indo-Chinese cuisine. The flavors and tastes were perfect and to-die-for. Each dish was unique. Despite our stomachs bursting from over-eating, we also had our favorites from the Indian menu. The staff was super-attentive and gave us great tips on what to order, along with special treats as they knew we were there for a celebration. Utsav has truly maintained its wonderful standards and unique variety and tastes, despite the impact from Covid. For those who are keen about social-distancing during these COVID times, Utsav provides the added bonus of massive indoor space and covered outdoors, so you can be far away from other diners and have a safe and enjoyable time.

I was most excited about trying to butter chicken kulcha, and was even more pleased at how delicious everything was! One of the best Indian restaurants I’ve had in a long time.

Utsav is a great restaurant to try out Indian food at. Firstly, it is one of the most spacious restaurants I have come across in Manhattan. The ambience and entry to the restaurant is great. We were served by Kevin who is very lovely and chirpy and a great person to be served by. He really made time to chat with us and make us feel at ease and at home at Utsav.

Had my birthday dinner here for a party of 12. Dining room is large & spacious which is helpful now that indoor dining has returned. The staff was quite attentive, prompt & courteous. The food was delicious, especially the chicken tikka masala. I also enjoyed the kebabs, naan, & samosa. The chocolate cake I had for dessert was quite yummy. This was a great experience & I look forward to returning.

The food quality was very poor. They didn’t have many dishes from the menu available. The server was very quick to tell us that we have to leave at 9:30 when we ordered at 8:30 yet the food didn’t come out until 9:15. He made it seem like we were bothering him by being there. We will not be coming to this restaurant again.

I've been to Utsav so many times over the years--usually for a pre-theatre dinner. I have always found the food to be exceptional. This time, due to the on-going crises, I assume, the caliber of everything was simply not the same. The outdoor seating we were given was at the 46th Street end of the terrace, dominated by the overwhelming din if an AC unit from the adjacent building. Also at that end was a sizeable group of homeless people. It was terribly uncomfortable. We asked to have our regular seats moved to the high tabletops. I missed the older, more mature, and more experienced servers from the past. The guys who waited on our table were pleasant but clearly confused. The food was o.k., but just o.k. I really want to support all of the dining establishments which are serving outdoors, but with prices going up and food standards going down, I'll cross Utsav off my list for now.

We went with no expectations, and we were pleasantly surprised, we used to come to this restaurant years ago, and now we will definitely go back, the food was very good, service was very pleasant, the goat biryani was excellent actually every main was very good, the Yellow dal was really exceptional, the Nan was very good but next time I would ask for it without the butter!

This is a good but not great Indian restaurant. The food is fresh and tasty if not exciting. But it is literally next door to the Roundabout Theater, making it a perfect place for pre-theater dinner. I will definitely return for future theater evenings.
