Good food with choice of buffet or sit-down dining. Service is good as is location. You may have vegetarian, meat, or fish dishes.

Passed this place on the way back to the hotel, was hungry and took a chance. Just inside the door are counters with the usual Indian dishes, along with an authentic Naan oven. You can choose food there and take it upstairs to the dining room to eat, or order from a menu upstairs It's a pretty rickety looking place,... More

It was a spontaneous visit, the smell from the restaurant was awesome, we were tempted as soon as we got close to the outlet. The guys offered us tasters, which confirmed the purchase. Great guys, great food, one of the best currys ever!

OK, we didn't expect anything exceptional here - it's a cheap Indian restaurant that has been around for a long time. However, the chana masala was boring and the lamb saagwala was sort of disgusting (slimy and had a weird aftertaste). The service was minimal. The samosas were OK and the garlic naan was quite nice. Maybe we didn't choose... More

My husband and I met a friend there for a late dinner on Tuesday, 8/30/16. We had the Combination Platter with Saag Paneer, Eggplant with Potatoes, Chicken Wings, and Naan, which is what we usually order when we come. My husband usually asks for Chicken Tikka sauce on his rice and the staff is very accommodating. The food is well... More

Awesome, fair priced Indian food in an uncomplicated atmosphere. Sit in or take out, the food is delicious. Especially after a long day of sightseeing footwork - had a blast.

Cheap, not the nicest atmosphere - but this is a must-go for Indian food lovers in New York. Everything about the dishes was just right, I can only recommend it. Order a mixed platter, go upstairs and enjoy. You will be satisfied.

They make a the Best Masala Dosas, they are just like the ones you get in India. The upstairs even reminds of restaurants in India. I've been going here for about 30 yrs. I usually split it with my husband because it's so big!

as my grandmother like to say, "you can't eat atmosphere" and grandma would have loved curry in a hurry. the curry combination plates are fabulous and the tandoori dishes are out of this world. no there are no crystal goblets or fine china. far from it. just great food at very reasonable prices.
