Tips are optional. You are not entitled to a tip if the service is awful. We pay for the food. Never coming here again. I watched as other customers were being treated unfairly and disgusted by what I saw.More

Yes, it’s tacky, not particularly genuine and the food is not the best Indian. But at the same time you won’t have more fun at an Indian restaurant independent of the quality of the food. It reminds me of a night out in Bombay with...More

This place was nice, the service was very good. The decor is charming. The food is very good. Just be careful to enter the right restaurant, since there are 4 very similar looking in the same building.

There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
