This is probably the best value in NYC. We had horrible service at S&W. I pulled out TripAdvisor and found this diamond in the rough - #23 out of 15k restaurants in the city and the highest rated in a half mile radius.

This is the best Indian I’ve ever had.

The cauliflower app I could eat 24/7.

The shrimp curry is out of this world and our sever was correct - it’s mind boggling.

The lamb is beyond outstanding.

The naan is perfect.

This is a must go if you want a value and Indian.

We were desperate for good curry having been in the USA for 2 weeks and this was our last night in NY. We found this restaurant by googling an Indian restaurant in NY.... This restaurant had great reviews.... and we weren't disappointed. From the moment we arrived in this restaurant we were treated like returning customers... the team couldn't have been more helpful and made a dish especially for one of our party..... We had the Lamb Rogan Josh, Chicken Tikka Massala and a King Prawn Jalfrezi, the special request. The food was excellent.... The attention to detail and the attention of the staff was great. We were not rushed and had a great meal, that was a fabulous finish to out time in the USA and NY.

Our Mâitre D’, Aldo, took care that our party of four had the best possible experience! All of us are very familiar with the food of the sub-continent, (two being Indian), and we were very pleasantly surprised that such a spectacular meal was so reasonable.
The food was spiced enough to allow the flavours of the underlying ingredients to shine through. Service was attentive without being intrusive. Staff were friendly and welcoming.
The ambience was chic with an Indian vibe.
Don’t miss this gem on your visit to NYC...... you will be delighted! The staff and owners are present in the restaurant and make sure you are well looked after.
Enjoy!

This place is amazing. The waiter made so many good suggestions that he ended up choosing our whole meal for us including the wine. The food was like no other Indian we have tried - truly a taste sensation. If we lived in New York this would be our regular Indian for sure.

We were very pleased with the attention given us by the maître d'. He was very willing to accommodate our request to alter the preparation of a particular dish per our preferences. He also made recommendations without being pushy. The atmosphere was pleasant with a nice upscale feel. The wine list complimented the menu nicely. Everything we ordered was well prepared and tasty.

A last minute find that exceeded our expectations. An incredible staff, especially our dedicated server Aldi, a very extensive menu (Indian, Asian Fusion), wonderful ambience, immaculately clean, and truly fantastic food, my husband and I will absolutely take another trip to eat there again. We have already recommended it several people, local and otherwise.

I am not very familiar with Indian cuisine. The Indo-Chinese fusion concept was intriguing to me. Our server was extremely helpful. We had tofu lettuce wraps - delicious, and a very generous, shareable portion. My companion ordered Aloo Gabi, which she said was excellent. I ordered the Indo-Chinese Chicken, broccoli, and ginger. Everything was very fresh, and not heavy handed with spice. It was so delicious. Our server brought us a little complimentary treat at dessert. The ambiance was very pleasant, not too noisy. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
