The Roti bread was delicious and I recommend the Lamb with vegetables. The atmosphere is nice and the staff is kind.

I've ordered food from here twice, and both times found it to be quite bland and flavorless.

After reading the reviews I thought of checking the place out myself. I ordered a couple of dishes and they all tasted wonderful. It was reasonably priced and the qty. was decent. If you're on a student budget then it might feel a little heavy on the pocket but its definitely great food. Definitely worth checking out. Enjoy!!

Definitely the best of the three Indian options (Ajanta and Bengal Cafe) close to Columbia. Decor is obviously not the best in the world, but this place is what it is -- a college kid's Friday night out when s/he doesn't want to eat in the dining hall. Took my father, a picky native Indian diner, here and he came away very satisfied. I was pleased, too. A word of caution, though: it is more expensive than the two counterparts mentioned above.

This Columbia U area Indian cafe gets a lot of students and various uptown types. Perfect for those students "sopping up" after t beers at at a neighborhood bar or party, or first experiencing Indian food. Very friendly staff and a full bar (which is unusual in an Indian restaurant, so you can actually have hard liquor in addition to the excellent bottled beers.) The food is just OK and a good value for money. With the welcoming ambiance, not a bad choice as long as you realize its limitations.

I live across Broadway from this place. I love Indian food, which is why I'm so disappointed by my experience. I ordered Chicken Tikka Masala for take out. Instead of the usual sauce, there was a watery substance without flavor. A few months later I tried the place again, hoping it was a one-time problem. Same experience. I never met an Indian dish I didn't like- until the Indian Cafe! Now when I want Indian food I go a few blocks down Broadway, there are at least three Indian restaurants that serve normal food, where a sauce is a sauce.

The food in this place is unlike few places outside of Little India in Jackson Heights, Queens, either eating there or ordering it. The atmosphere is welcoming and the setting is enticing, specially if you seat in the area to the left of the bar. I find that simply telling the waiter you are going to talk for a bit with your companion (when the place is not super busy) is enough for them to give you ample private time without the water refills.
