  • Great cocktails, the cauliflower starter, kabab and butter chicken are all excellent. It was my first time trying cauliflower rice and it was great too!
  • Loved the yogurt chicken very very delicious. Nice presentation of the food. Lamp chops are to die for. In general everything tastes yummy
  • Delicious! The colonel Tao's cauliflower is awesome (but spicy) and the palak paneer is some of the best I've had.
  • Must drink the Sardarni Ji > hendrick's gin, elderflower, black pepper, cucumber, lime, celery bitters
  • Amazing Tasting Menu! Awesome attendance and very good prices...
  • Try to make the weekly happy hour. Worth every penny.
  • food was good (coconut shrimp curry , rainbow carrots were tasteless) & great service but the ambiance is a lil phony
  • Staff are so friendly. I dont know what these floral circles are but theyre so good its vegetarian and you must it all at once to get all the sauces inside! The shrimp coconut was good too
  • Go with friends and get the tasting menu. The Gol Gappa, as the starter blew my mind, I think about it at least once a week.
  • Food was great Bentley is a great server. Explained the menu. Very attentive to our needs. Will definitely return. Get the cauliflower and the brussel sprouts. Delish.
  • Indian cuisine
  • Definitely order Gol Gappa as a starter. You have to try these tamarind, dates & yogurt one-bite-bombs before you start enjoying the dinner!
  • Delicious food and presentation. Cant go wrong with anything on the menu, but the highlight was the short rib korma. Many options for vegetarians / gluten free as well.
  • Happy hour is a killer value. Service and food are great. You can't go wrong with the butter chicken.
  • Cucumber salad and chicken butter, lamb kebab,basmati rice,gol gappa were our orders everything was so good, cozy restaurant with small menu. I will come again
  • lacks the charm of the original Alphabet City location but the food is still great!
  • If anyone wants the $62 Tasting Menu, the whole table must order it. Its good for people new to Indian food but I felt hungry and unsatisfied. Homemade kulfi and bourbon cocktail were excellent.
  • Everything is good. The tandoori chicken is fantastic, as is the butter chicken and cauliflower.
  • Get the tasting menu - delish. My faves include goi gappa, colonel Taos cauliflower, tandoori chicken and the unauthentic butter chicken
  • Loved the food! The cauliflower was great and spicy. Also loved the butter chicken with rice. Good beer selection too (its serve yourself from their beer fridge).
