the food is delicious, the prices aren't that bad, just the lassi isn't that great. also don't come more than 2 minutes late if you make a reservation because they may get annoyed. though the food is very good.
The delivery takes a bit longer than expected. But the food is quite good. A littel pricy as well

So as a first generation Indian myself, I have been to a lot of Indian restaurants in the city but I have never been very happy with the food. But I have to say that the food at Dhaba was amazing! The Tandoori Chicken reminded me of the food I had (and dreamed about) in India. Their Dahiwala chicken and the Goan fish are also really awesome! Definitely try those if you go.

Very noisy; tables too close together; uneven, slow service; rather pricey for the neighborhood; and really mediocre food. Everything we ordered was greasy, lukewarm, and piquant but otherwise underseasoned. Only tourists, not truckers, would wait for a meal here.

I have eaten at many many Indian restaurants in NYC and other cities (>20). The food here is excellent. I did wait a long time for my check and the table was a little small however the food is great. Order outside your comfort zone, dont just order the one Indian dish you know...

My friend saw a good review about Dhaba on t.v. and we decided to try this past weekend. It's not a large restaurant but we sat in a booth and didn't feel crowded. Decor is vibrant with wood tables, bottled spices and rolls of cloth on walls to provide bright color. Menu is extensive with numerous options (including vegetarian and vegan). I usually get my standard dish of chicken tikka masala when I go to Indian restaurants but decided to try something different this time. I had the shrimp malai curry which was well seasoned, had just the right amount of heat and was served with large shrimps. FYI, menu is a la carte so had to order side of basmati rice separately along with poori bread. Poori was light and tasty but just a bit greasy. My friend felt like lamb tikka masala but it was not offered on the menu. She asked our waiter if they would be able to make the lamb for her in the tikka masala sauce and they were very accommodating and said no problem. She thought the lamb was well cooked and tikka sauce was tasty. Prices are a little bit higher than your average Indian restaurant but to have good food in an attractive ambience I’ll sacrifice the few extra bucks. As for service, had more than one waiter come by to take our order and they were patient when we took a while to decide. During our meal the waiter came by to check if everything was good and we received the check quickly when done. Overall, was one of the best Indian restaurants I've been to and will definitely go back.

the food is pretty good / not that great. The atmosphere is cute, but the noise level of average diners talking is deafening. The service is the worst I have experienced in years. This place is a drag. Plan to wait 45 minutes for your meal and have totally spaced out staff try to manage your order. It's a must miss if you ask me.
