Food lacked taste. The tandoori dishes were cold and barely cooked, even hot tea was served cold. Never again!

I love Indian food and this is some of the best I've ever had (including in India.) The vegetables are fresh and not greasy, the spicing is subtle, the service is attentive (always ask if Milton, co-owner with his sister, is there - he's great.) AND if you don't eat wheat, they will make you delicious rice nan. Try the eggplant appetizer (w/tamarind - delicious) and any saag. The okra is also very good. And the tandoori chicken wings are the best ever.

My boyfriend and I just got back from here and had probably the worst meal either of us has ever had in New York. We asked for the window seat and were put next to a "window" made from plexiglass and sealed with paper towels. The candle had sauce spilled all over the sides from past dinners, and the tablecloth was dirty. We ordered the tandoori shrimp and tandoori vegetables, as we're both watching fat intake. The coriander chutney was very good -- the only good part of the meal. Our tandoori shrimp involved 8 small shrimps on an appetizer-sized plate with some barely-cooked onion and green pepper slices. The veggie tandoori was huge chunks of barely-cooked vegetables (I honestly could not even stab the carrot chunk with my fork), mostly onion and green pepper, with two pieces of cauliflower, two pieces of broccoli, and two large tomato halves. Both shrimp and veggies had apparently been dusted with tandoori powder and stuck under a broiler just long enough to cook the shrimp (hence the barely-cooked veggies). Just desperate to get out of there, we scarfed down our food, waited a long time for the check and our change, and left. Never to return.

at first I was hesitant, but my wife insisted that we try the new Indian place that's 2 blocks away from us. To our amazement, this was the best Indian food we had in NYC. The staff were very knowledgeable and courteous. Hands down the best lamb chops ever, which was very perfectly spiced. Our new favorite place definitely.

After reading the review from others, we went to the restaurant. The service was great at the begining and slows down after we ordered. The Garlic nan was thick, cool and burned. The vegetarian dish was also cold and not tasty at all.

I keep coming back to Angon because I get tired of the overwrought, gaudy, tinsel ceilinged, blinking light Indian restaurants on Indian Row. I go to them for take-out because the food's still good, but Angon has a wonderful atmosphere - dark and romantic - and the food and service is excellent.

I ate here with a friend and was very disappointed. We ordered the Shrimp Saag and to my dismay, it was bland and missing all the special indian spices. The Mango Lassi was thick and was served with lots of ics cube, don't understand why. I felt like I was eating a Dannon Yogurt. The Rosewater Lassi was subpar, at best. I would not go back here again. I would normaly go to Haveli down the street but decided to try this place. I was very annoyed. I totally agree wtih the person who wrote that this place has gone downhill.
