    wish it didn't cost so much

    The food was good and the place is beautiful and quiet enough to hold a conversation. The only reason I would hesitate to return are the high prices. I've never had to shell out an extra 6 bucks for rice . Yes, I know, i can take my business to 6th street and get what i pay for....

    Excellent service and food plus atmosphere!

    Best experience I've had in an Indian food fine dining restaurant (and that's considering that I've been to the tulsi's and junun's of NYC ). Daniel our waiter was very courteous , pleasant and eloquent and ensured we have a great time. He made some good suggestions and the food was absolutely delicious. The decor was rustic and adequate, not corporate like others . Will be coming again soon.

    Pressuring you into paying more

    I went with a meetup group and most wanted to order the three course meal on advice of the waiter. I wanted a less expensive vegetarian entree, but the waiter said if we did the 3-course meal everyone at the table would have to order it. I did not understand why that would be, nothing in the menu said if one or more people order a 3-course meal everyone at the table has to. However, I did not want to make a scene so I agreed to that. The food was good but not excellent. After dinner, we all found a surprise; there was an extra charge for rice and/or nan for every meal (we thought we only got one of each and it came with the meal). After an explanation from the waiter which I still do not understand to this day, they agreed to take the extra charge off. However, I still ended up spending over $60.00 on a meal which would have cost closer to $40.00 if the waiter didn't make me order a 3-course meal. I walked out of that restaurant with a feeling I had just been slimed, despite the tasty meal...

    Poor Quality, Small Portions

    I have never posted a negative restaurant review before, but just arrived home from dinner at Devi and it was the worst dining experience I have had in Manhattan. The salmon and crab croquettes were flavorless and matched the expectations I would have for a microwave meal. I was hoping the main course would be better, but it was an even bigger let down. I ordered the tandoori lamb chops and received two small, fatty chops. After discarding the fat, my dinner literally included one bite of meat. The potatoes side was about the size of a silver dollar. I’ve had some bad meals before, but there is usually enough food on the plate to leave feeling as though a meal has been eaten. On the plus side, the atmosphere was enjoyable and the service was friendly….but I go out to enjoy good food and Devi did not deliver. Gotta go, my Chinese takeout has arrived!

    Exceptional new Indian cuisine

    This restaurant is superb. That's that. Great service amazing food. Rarely have I had such nuanced Indian cuisine. Can't wait to try the whole menu (vegetarian only).

    First time and first impression

    Tried restaurant with a colleague. Experience was mediocre. Service was lacking and food was very average. Value was poor for the prices being charged.

    Disappointing and not worth it!

    Let me begin by saying the dinner was thoroughly disappointing. For the price charged for the restaurant week dinner menu, the quality of food was definitely not excellent - it was just average. Most definitely not value for money. I had expected the ambience and the service to make up for it but found it sorely lacking! The ambience was strictly okay. The service was pathetic -our frowning waiter could not even tell us what non-alchoholic drinks they serve as we couldn't spot it in any menu they gave us. He didn't want to take the effort to go through the list with us so we had to list them out for him to say a 'yes' or 'no'... In short, so not worth it!
