Had 2 appetizers - shrimp and lamb along with garlic nan - all very good. Enjoyed a bottle yesterday of Chateau St Michelle Cab. For entrees ordered Sea Bass special and Chicken Tikka Masala - both wonderful. Great servers and nice dining room.

We had a terrific experience at this restaurant. The manager went out of his way to provide us with a quick meal because we were short on time. Food was delicious and service beyond excellent! We will definitely return whenever we visit Manhattan!

Die guten Bewertungen haben uns einen Tisch für unser Geburtstagsessen reservieren lassen. Die Reservierung hat von Deutschland aus gut geklappt und der Abend hat das gehalten, was er versprochen hat. Ohne Reservierung ist sicher kein Tisch zu bekommen. Das Essen ist sehr gut, wie man es von einem guten Inder erwarten kann. Zur Krönung gab es en Geburtstagsständchen der Belegschaft.

We were 4 high school friends of the mid 60's, nostalgic for the culture, foods and people of our hometown, Guyana. We found all of it here. Our ancient heritage is so connected. The music, waiters and especially the food were so familiar, long forgotten stories even emerged accompanied with big happy belly laughs. It was a really wonderful experience. Our waiter ALDI took great care of us, including directions to the theatre where we were going to see "Carousel" a marvelous show.

Excellent food, from choice to taste. Cannot fault any of it . We love Indian food as a family and can be quite critical of the many restaurants we have tried over the years, but this one was spot on. Would recommend to anyone.

Great find walking distance from our hotel. Though the front of the restaurant was hidden behind scaffolding, the restaurant was gleaming with glowing lights and beautiful black and white patterned tile floor to give the perfect ambience. The food was spectacular and the service was top knotch! Highly recommend.

Don’t let the uninviting exterior fool you! Inside is a sleek oasis of great food and personal service. While we enjoyed the Indian dishes more than the Chinese, everything was god. Our server was not shy about making recommendations, and made some excellent ones. Some decent wine values as well.

It was packed, and i don't know why. The food is ok if it was one of the few Indian restaurants in the area, clearly that is not the case. There are so many great Indian places. It was my second time, and only because I only recognized it when i got there and I had a reservation.
Will not go back. Service was ok, nothing great. Started with a cocktail, as most other things here ok, nothing great. Food: I had Spinach Chaat. heavily battered. I am used to delicious crispy fried spinach without loads (just a bit) of battering. fairly greasy. The Dal Makhani was the best dish I had here, compared to what I am used to fairly good. As entree I had Lamb Rogan Josh, the lamb was good, just not spicy at all, I guess I should have asked for extra spicy.
Overall, I spend almost 90$. I guess I can't mention competitors here by name (go to 44th, between 2nd and 3rd), but I will write reviews for other places I have been - including the night before this visit, even though that seemed a more expensive place, the bill was less and the food, service and overall experience was so much better.

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.
