  • High quality Indian food at a very reasonable price. Highlights were the dahi puri, lamb seekh kebab, goat biryani, and saag paneer. Staff is super nice and helpful!
  • Quality has fallen
  • Bon-Appetit 2019 - Top 50 Nominee for Americas Best New Restaurants: Powerful, purposeful, firing-on-all-cylinders Indian hits.
  • Cheese naan and goat biryani were the best weve had there
  • Like eating at your Masis house in India...if she was nice with every dish. Everything is solid and affordable. Kale pakora
  • Spoonful of spice and everything nice (especially the tune)
  • Delicious food here. The lotus root kofta is good. Chili cheese naan is a must!
  • This is insanely good food. If its your first time, you gotta go for the Lucknow Dum Biryani. And the naan with Amul cheese.
  • Tasty food but get a reservation because you will be waiting a while otherwise. The Aloo Chana Chaat is simple but also addicting. Keema Pao has some surprising kick. Tandoori meats are tender
  • Delicious dinner. Its not a place to linger over a meal - long lines waiting to get in. Next time I will try to land seats at the bar. My faves were the spinach, kale and eggplant dishes.
  • Whatever else you get, make sure to order the biryani and the chana chaat. The rest is up to you.
  • Yea this place is special! Kale Pakoda, Dahi Batata Puri, Chicken Makhani and the Lotus Root Kofta were the favs but I want to try everything
  • Samosa a good start; Mumbai lamb curry delicious. Music VERY loud
  • All the starters. Focus on those to be most impressed. By the fabulously creative approach. Pakoda, cauliflower, bhel puri all amazing.
  • NYT Top New Restaurants ** (11/2018): "Chaats; keema pao; kaleji masala; bhatti da murgh; tandoori poussin; tandoori macchi; saag paneer; dilliwala butter chicken; rara gosht; Lucknow dum biryani."
  • Dont miss: Dani batata, aloo chana chaat, saag paneer, kofta and cheese naan. Veggie Biriyani was *not* flavorful, although the naan they use to cover its super tasty. Wash down w/mango lassi
  • Really delicious, authentic Indian food. Some of the best weve had in NYC (and weve eaten a lot of Indian food). Gets crowded fast- make a reservation ahead of time or youll be in line forever.
  • Get the kale. Seriously.
  • Great simple Indian food - we had dahi Puri, kale pakodas, chilli paneer Tikka, Dal makhani and garlic naan and all of them were delicious.
  • This is best Indian food I have had in or outside India, I dread the day it becomes busy and expensive, but so good, nyc needed this, byob! Order anything, everything.
