Got delivery from Angon for the first time. Never again! With so many places on 6th I picked this one because it is Zagat rated. But the food did not measure up. Had the samosa chat as an app - don't know how it is served in the restaurant but for delivery it comes as a wet, messy clump of goop. chicken tikka masala - don't order it! i wish i had seen the negative review below. it is unlike any tikka masala i've had before: not creamy, barely spiced, overpowered by green peppers and dry chicken. Rezala - dull dish of somewhat mealy lamb in a gray sauce. mango lassi - decent! rice - fine! naan - totally undercooked, limp and doughy. try another restaurant on curry row.

just spent arm and a leg on soup and a chicken dish and it was no better than you could get at a deli stand. The mulligatawny (sp?) soup was so salty i couldnt eat it. The nan was cold and damp when i received it. And...the main course, what was supposedly Chicken Tikka Masala looked to be a left over from another order. It was not creamy at all, again to salty and also was filled with peppers and tomatoes. I had never seen this before on a masala. I am very leery of some of the reviews on the site. Proceed at your own risk.

I was not a fan of indian food before this place. I had been to Cafe Spice on University Place (TERRIBLE) & Mitali also on Curry Row before (Decent), but after eating Angon I nearly converted to Hinduism. Milton (waiter and owner) is awesome, the waitstaff is extremely attentive, the kitchen doesnt take too long and the place is nicely but not over decorated. The food is a little pricey for Curry Row, but it wipes the floor with every other restaurant on the street. My favorite dish is the Chicken Dopeja, although I've tried the Vindaloo and Curry which are also excellent. For appetizers the pastry on the samosas is particularly delicious and I'd recomend the dessert sampler (awesome rice pudding, tangy cheesecake-like yogurt, and this carrot- cakey thing). The main beer there ( although there are several indian varieties) is the Taj Mahal, and the supersized version works excellently. The other fruity drinks, like this one mango one, are very refreshing and work well with spicy dishes like Vindaloo. All in all, this restaurant is amazing and is worth a shot whether you're a tourist, going on a date, need a place for a business meeting, or a veteran Indian food lover.

Just every every space on 6th houses an Indian restaurant but Angon may be the best. Wonderful, relaxing, homey atmosphere, friendly, very good service and wonderful food. The Mulligatawny Soup is a great starter and any of the lamb or chicken dishes are superb. Some of the dishes may be too peppery for some tastes but if you ask them to ease up on the pepper when you order you'll get it as you like it. Family-owned and operated, Angon is exactly what a restaurant should be.

Milton and Jelliner really know how to make folks feel welcome and at home. We used to go to another place on 6th which had great food but even after 10 years, they never really made us feel the way we do at Angon. The second time we went there, Milton remembered our names and what dishes we liked! The friendly hospitality and excellent food have turned us into Angon devotees.

It's rare to find an indian restaurant in manhattan (let alone 6th street) where where the food is this good and the ambiance so pleasant. you could take a date here, bring your parents or go with a big group of friends; it's perfect any way. milton, the owner, makes you feel like part of the family. he always has a big smile and is willing to whip up a special bengali dish that you might be craving. things to try: the samosa chat, begun achar, bhuna ghost, kichuri... also, the lemonade + lager is the best summertime drink ever. highly recommended!
