This restaurant has gotten so much better. I used to eat here years ago, and it was always decent, but lately, they have really stepped up the quality. The lamb vindaloo is murderous in its spice level, if you're into that kind of thing. I like all of the chicken dishes but especially the chicken tikka masala, which has a creamy quality to it that it lacks when I've tried it at some other neighborhood Indian restaurants. I also like the chicken saag. The chicken in it is very tender and moist.

Bad because they do not deliver to downtown! I tried a bunch of Indian restaurants in the downtown area and NOTHING compares to the Indian Cafe! This is my favorite restaurant. The food is tasty. The service is great. I have no complaints. I swear to God! I'm wary about saying this because a lot of people may go & then they'll know their worth and jack up the prices!

A beautiful little restaurant with friendly service and delicious food. I don't like my food really spicy, so the rather mild seasoning on Indian Cafe's food suits me just fine. Chicken korma is the greatest! They do a fast takeout service, too.

Take a walk down 110th broadway. A little cozy indian restaurant u will find. A friendly indian waiter from the Philippines you will meet. Make sure you get him to service you whether he is at the bar or serving food. My family would go down there every friday and make sure he attends to us. Not only is he a good waiter but has a good sense of humor. Before we could order he would recommend what to eat. The way he would describe the food and how its made... your mouth will water. Every friday we get him to order for us without looking at heir menus and all the time he would be able to satisfy our palates. Service? He treats you as VIP and always with a smile. If your'e out to have indian food check this place out but make sure you look for this waiter from the Philippines.

It must be that I don't know what Indian food is SUPPOSED to taste like. I have read the reviews for this restaurant, and for those of Indus Valley. The consensus seems to indicate that Indus Valley is superior by far. I disagree! I found Indus' food underseasoned, and the portions skimpy. Indian Cafe's food is flavorful, and the portions generous. I have tried the Chicken Makhani at the local Indian eateries, and I think Indian Cafe's is the best. Same goes for their samosa! Delivery is very reliable too.

The menu here is the typical fare in NY, but the value is great and the place stays open till mid night. At least as a regular I find the staff to be very friendly

Actually some of the least flavorful food of any ethnic origin I've ever had (including British). I noticed the restaurant was frequently crowded so I tried it again, thinking I may have had just one bad experience. But no, it's really bad food. Dry meat, watery sauce, no flavor. My prognosis has since been corroborated by several of my Indian friends, who are equally flummoxed by this joint's evident popularity. True, the rest of the neighborhood's Indian options are also not good, but Indian Cafe is worse, particularly because its crowded dining room lures the uninitiated.
