I will not say that Alma is awful, it has excellent rice, but I ordered the lamb and it was so chewy (and fatty) I wondered if it'd been cooked properly, but the sauce was tasty. I ordered this same meal two days in a row. Both days the lamb was poor, and the condiments were inconsistent, as one day the mango chutney was plentyful and the next a tiny amout and the mint was missing. The dal is tasteless. The paratha was excellent. OK, two attemps and I'm not going back for a third.

My husband and I were thrilled to find this place on the UWS, after our beloved Earthen Oven closed. The food was quite honestly some of the best Indian food that I have ever had. The waiter was absolutely amazing, and the Chef, we were thrilled to learn, was the former Chef at Earthen Oven. The food was prepared with such care, detail and quality, was could not get over the delectability! A MUST GO!

I rarely write reviews, but I had to write about Amla because my food was amazing. I got the paneer skewers and the baingan bhartha. Both were delicious and tasted so fresh. The seasoning was done just right. The person who took my order was also extremely friendly and the delivery was quick. I will definitely try it again!

Just had dinner at Amla and I was so impressed. The ambiance, the service, the menu, the food....just excellent. I love Indian food and so I know when I'm getting quality experience. I hope they keep it up even when they become very popular.

My husband and I went to Amla last night and we were both very pleased with the entire experience. We enjoy going out for Indian food and have been hoping for a really good place to open up in our area. The food tasted very fresh, we ordered Palak Paneer and Chicken Chettinand and both dishes were delicious and well prepared. Our servers were friendly and efficient and the bill was reasonable. We will definitely be going back soon to try the Dosas. Amla is a wonderful addition to the neighborhood!

i went to this place recently and the service was not that great and the taste of the food was not worth its price. i really think it needs some adjustments

If I could only use one word to describe Amla it would be 'amazing'. In my opinion, it is the best Indian cusine I have had in NYC. The food is fresh, delicious, and prepared with attention to every detail. The presentation of each dish was beautiful and as elegant as the restaurant's decor, service was impeccable, prices are extremely reasonable for the quality of food and service each guest receives. Definitely a 5 star restaurant in my book!
