I get cravings for this dish, which I've had many times. It's the first Indian restaurant I've been too which offers this tangy succulent vegetarian option from the tandoor, a treat if you are vegetarian and a little sick of the same old saag paneer, etc.

Had delivery from this place...the nan was pita bread. Dal was watery. Curry could've had more taste. Won't order from here again.

If you've been to Indus Valley and you haven't tried the Indus Valley Dal, do yourself a favor and order it on your next visit. The Tandoori Chicken (don't expect it to be orange in color as you might be used to seeing it in ordinary Indian restaurants) and the Lamb Chops are excellent?tender and moist, and perfectly seasoned. The Mulligatawny Soup is also wonderful, though quite rich?good to share with your dinner partner. If you're inclined to have a pre-dinner cocktail, Indus Valley is one of the few place in New York that carries Magellan Gin, and this restaurant can prepare a perfect martini to sip while you nibble on your Papadum.

I'm Indian. I've been to India 15 times. My mom brought me up on Indian food. And this is the best north Indian food I've yet to have. The biryani is exquisite. They use good ingredients. And the waitstaff is very curteous. Trust me, it's a good place. A bit pricey though.

I keep hoping I'll enjoy Indus Valley - it's near my apartment, the restaurant looks great, the food looks great, and I particularly like northern Indian cooking. Unfortuantely the food is subpar. The last time I went the saag paneer was so salty I couldn't eat it. Althouth the vegetables in the korma were fresh, the dish was lacking taste. All in all, the food seemed to be made for a photo shoot and not for consumption.

After trying many UWS places with similar frustration, I decided to try Indus. In short, this is yet another place with bland/poorly seasoned food with questionable 'modifications' to Indian cuisine that I will not be patronizing a third time. Samosas--OK, though not very tasty. This and the garlic naan were really the only things I didn't actively dislike. Palak Paneer--subpar spinach puree, bland and uninteresting. Lamb Paneer--again, they ruined what would have been a passable dish by pureeing some plums and coating the inside of a lamb cutlet with it. Too much, did not mesh, just bring me some decent curries already! On the last night we went, there were about ten tables full. The only Indian people there were the waiters. Take that how you will.

We order from Indus Valley at least once a month. It's by far our favorite Indian food in the city. It's a little more expensive than some but food is expertly prepared-- it's lighter and the spicing is much more delicate and complex. The Alu Chat is a must have! We love Indus Valley!
