The malai kofta is cooked with the passion of a thousand suns.

I used to love this place. It was a hole-in-the-wall, neighborhood joint that served damn good, authentic, cheap Indian. Whenever I went, there would be a Bombay movie playing on a tiny television and Indian folks eating there. It was a dump, but that was fine because you either went for a quick bite or take-out. The new owners now white table-clothed the place, but kept the counter service. It just looks ridiculous. I wouldn't mind it if they kept the food the same quality. But now, the food is not fresh and is all salt and no spice. They don't even fill up the take-out containers. What a cheap stunt. I stopped by on a Thursday during prime dinner time and not one person was there. I'm so sad.

We ordered through web the other day from this place. We were told that the waiting time was between 30 and 40 minutes. However, after an hour and fifteen minutes, the delivery still did not arrive. We had to call the restaurant to ask what happened. We were told that the food was on the way. The food finally arrived after another 20 minutes, making the total waiting time for delivery to over 1.5 hours, which was over twice the waiting time we were given initially. And to make it worse, they didn't even give us any fork or spoon. The food was barely average. The overall experience made us never want to order from this place ever again.

Food was not good. The chicken and lamb dishes I ordered were microwaved because the meat was dried out. The spinach dish wasn't much better, but was better than the chicken or lamb dishes. All of them were far too salty and I like salty food, the lamb korma didn't taste anything like lamb korma should, nor did the chicken tikka masala (no creamy or yogurt consistency). All the dishes were overpriced and you get a ton of sauce and hardly any meat for your money at all. Very disappointing. It used to be good but someone wrote the owners were changed.

We made a quick "Seamlessweb" order for Chicken TIkka Biryani and it was divine.......I have infact forced a colleague to order it again today. I was looking for this everywhere in NYC.....its delectable!

I ordered food for delivery and it took an hour and a half to arrive. When it finally got here, it was some of the worst Indian food I've ever had. I eat A LOT of Indian, it's one of my favorites, but this place does not do it well. The chicken was really fatty and stringy, mostly dark meat. The sauces weren't very spicy and the green samosa sauce is neon glow-in-the dark green. With all the Indian places in this neighborhood, better take your business elsewhere.

You can get a large, filling lunch for $5 and $6, so it's definitely a value. The quality is something else. It's not bad or anything -- just that the sauces taste like they came out of a can, and there's way too much of a sauce-to-main-ingredient ratio in most dishes. The sauces also don't seem to be tailored to a single dish: try a number of the items, and you'll inevitably start seeing the same sauces over and over again. The one that is used with both the malai kofta and the paneer masala (and who knows what else?) for example, is particularly synthetic tasting. The meats and vegetables are OK. Not great but certainly acceptable. The nan, however, is really good and comes in several varieties. This is a good way to get an Indian food fix for cheap at lunchtime if you work in the area, but I wouldn't bother in most other circumstances.
