The food is sensational, done with a skill that you get only in the best restaurants. What creativity what daring what delicious tastes. But the place is truly uncomfortable, being loud, dark and terribly crowded. I think you have to be very young or go with your own large party to enjoy the atmosphere. Despite having the best meal I've had all year, I was relieved to be out in the cool quiet East Village when I left.

Had a great time here. Such a cute and fun little spot with delicious food and wine. Definitely something unique. You do not have to be very adventurous to like the food, just don't go looking for boring, standard options.

Had dinner recently at Graffiti, and found everything to be wonderful! The menu is small, and not for the unadventurous. Everything that we ordered was delicious, and had the most intriguing flavor combinations. The restaurant is tiny, and the seating is communal if you aren't with a bigger party. All of the bottles of wine are $25, which makes for a steal! Would definitely recommend to those looking for an eclectic dining experience!

Food was ok, everything tasted the same and generally too much cumin. Place is tiny, be ready to sit family style. Portions were very small, and overpriced. Service was friendly but made several mistakes. Don't be afraid to skip this place...

Nice space, but I wouldn't want to be there when it was crowded. Muted flavors and much too expensive for what you got. I can't understand the rave reviews. But any review whose favorite adjective is "amazing" is not to be trusted. At least it wasn't "awesome."

The food and service was great. I shared two appetizers, the paneer and the beet salad, both were amazing, and had the eggplant cumin dish. I am a vegetarian and didnt really find that many options available, although what they did have was great. This is not super traditional Indian food that mom makes at home, so the flavors are more complex and i think will suit more palates. the owner is so knowledgable that i felt really engaged with every bite, trying to taste the flavors as he described them. I had to wait about 15 min for a table, but it was definitely worth it. The way the seating is arranged it seems like it would be a great place to have dinner for 6. also, the wine was delicious, all of them were only $25!

The food was great. I loved how the chef himself came out to explain each and every dish. It took service to a whole new level. I felt like I was in a friend's living room and he had prepared an elaborate meal just for me. The atmosphere is very East Village... trendy and cramped, but hey, it's the E. Village. I had the cumin eggplant wrap, beet salad and hazelnut cupcake which were all absolutely amazing. Great date spot as well.
