Upon moving into the neighborhood, I was delighed to find out that I lived a block away from an Indian food restaurant. Some of there food is quite good (e.g, the breads, especially the Naan and Parathas are excellent). The other food is very uneven -- ranging from good to poor. For example, the last time I ordered the Chicken Korma (takeout) it was not good. They obviously rushed the dish. The onions were not browned but instead huge and crunchy. This lack of care ruined the dish. The real disappointment was that I had ordered this dish before and it was good. Another example of there unevenness was when I ordered the appetizer sampler. The samosas and pakoras seemed to have been refried from the day before. They were very hard and burnt when I opened them up at home.

I stumbled upon this restaurant by chance and was extremely impressed by the food. I've tried most of the top rated Indian restaurants in New York plus a few in Queens, but Agra (not even Zagat rated) is the one I return to most often. Wonderful breads, flavorful curries, tender meats, excellent deserts and very reasonable prices if that matters. I usually get the Agra Thali dinner (choice of 2 entrees, paratha, desert, and tea all included). The only Indian food I like more is my mother's cooking.

I really like Agra. The bread is wonderful, the service attentive, and the prices great (considering the neighborhood). My favorite dish is the lamb korma.

After my recent trip to India, I was withdrawing from daily and delicious dose of dal. I was, therefore, disappointed when I turned to Agra and found the dal to be watery and lacking in taste. The naan was better, however. Agra might be inexpensive for the Upper East Side, but the quality of food reflects the prices.

This is the place to go if you want decent Indian food at an affordable price in Midtown East. They have a nice variety and the space is small and cozy. Perfect date place especially if you would like a quiet place where you can actually get to know you date better.

One of the less expensive of the Indian places in the lower 60s.
