Love the passed Tandoori! it is moist! different menu depending on which Sunday you go. Service is ok - its busy. Reasonably priced. can't beat AYCE Buffet in NYC. Top 10 Indian buffet in NY.

I am a huge fan of Indian food and I absolutely love this restaurant. I am a very harsh critic when it comes to food, but this Indian food is not to be missed. I eat at Dhaba almost every saturday and I have not had a single disappointing meal or even tasted any item of food that was not delicious. This is by far the best Indian food restaurant in New York City.

I don't write negative reviews. I really only believe in positive ones but I was just too angry. I agree with much of what Jeanne said on 10/21/2009. I've been eating Indian in NYC for 8 years now and I should have known better and paid more attention to the window menu. Yes the Sham Savera, Malai Kofte was pretty good but the Mahal Koftas, (as other restaurants spell it) was $14. with no basmati rice? So I realized after ordering that I would be spending $17. on a vegetarian dish. Yes, they list this under "Vegetarian and Paneer Cheese" but get real, this dish is found in almost every Indian restaurant for no more than $12. rice included. The balls weren't overcooked or dried out like I've had elsewhere and the sauce was especially good; the flavors rich, complex and with a nice thick texture and perfectly spiced. Aside from the marked up food, the service was idiotic. I waited for quite some time to order. The waiter, (I couldn't hear a thing he said, like the low talker from Seinfeld), took orders from 2 separate groups that sat down at least 5 mins. after I got there, (and I had closed my menu and kept my head tilted up from the table to attempt to make polite eye contact with the server). The table was ridiculously wobbly, the music was way loud, (I love loud music but I'm fking dining not dancing). Some other server tried to take the Sham Savera away while I had my spoon in the dish, as it was bound for my mouth. Instead, because I guess he was bored or determined took the empty papadum plate away and looking over his shoulder, hesitated after realizing I had a full bowl of the crispy bread. At the end of the meal I asked for the rest to be boxed. My main server took all he could handle and I thought he might come back for the main plate that still had a few Koftas, but he didn't and another server took it away after I looked him straight in the eye and said "to go please". The doggy bag arrived, I checked it because they hadn't earned my trust, and left. Arriving home later on I realized those guys only boxed the sauce and none of the Koftas, so I paid even more for less. My suggestion is- there are countless alternatives in the Great Apple, you don't have to pay 4 or 5 dollars extra here for trendy, hip, douche decor and deal with these people at the same time. Btw, why the hell were there something like 15 of these dopey, t-shirted servers bumbling around when there are almost as many tables? Weird.

My husband and I dine here quite often since we live in the neighborhood. The food is always delicious, best Indian restaurant in the neighborhood in our opinion and we tried several before this one became our go-to for Indian food. The staff is friendly or shy but always nice and the Mango Lassi's are obviously fresh and not out of a package or bottle and also not too sweet which I really appreciate. We would definitely recommend Dhaba if you're trying to choose between the seemingly hundreds of Indian Restaurants in this neighborhood! Bon Apetit

Went last night for hubby's birthday and the meal was fantastic. The street-food starters were magic, that cauliflower dish was remarkable (literally - we are still talking about that dang cauliflower!), okra, some spicy chicken thing, garlic naan. goat curry. We had about a thousand things and all were stellar. I want to go back tonight. Servers were super nice as was management as I made a zillion calls changing the number in our party.

We were anxious to try Dhaba however were disappointed. The only good dish was the Tandoori Chicken and even that was very basic, no char or real flavor other than the yogurt marinade. We also ordered the lamb chops and tandoor shrimp. The shrimp were very small, DRY/overcooked and tasteless....the lamb was below average. I couldn't be bothered to send the shrimp back.....so we left most of it. They must have a thing for red onions because they overuse it in everything. The basmati rice was bland. The only good thing was my King Fisher beer and the garlic nan. Skip ordering wine here.. we ordered one glass of Pinot Noir and while we didn't expect much.....it was a one sip and leave it glass. The service is OK for the first 5 minutes then it is a nightmare once the place gets busy. Nobody smile or can even look you in the eye. So service wise I rate it extremely poor. The restaurant is also way too dark....I suppose if the lights were turned up they are afraid of you really seeing what you are eating as well as the dirty walls. No hot water in the bathroom either. It's sad that in NYC you have to spend alot for "clean and crisp/fresh tasting Indian food. needless to say we will not be going back to Dhaba anytime soon....so there is an extra table for those who (for some odd reason) find this place to be a "great" (?) Indian restaurant.
