After eating at many of the Indian Restaurants in the city I can confidently say indus valley has the tastiest food, both the kebabs and curries are divine. Their North Indian dishes are really where the kitchen shines.

I've had Indian food in many restaurants in Manhattan...this one is the best. So much better than the typical neighborhood place...they have excellent service and good food. I was at a dinner party for 8 recently with many picky eaters...and everybody raved about the place! Looove the Malai Kafta. I wish they would upgrade the dessert presentation, but otherwise, a winner!

Yum! I don't have much to compare indus valley to locally , but as far as Indian restaurants go, this is a five star in my book. First off , the presentation is delightful- the server is very meticalons about. Placement of dishes, and the hostess is dressed in a lovely salwar kameez. As for the food itself, my channa masala was delish and my friends both enjoyed their meal... And for soburban prices, I ' m extra- pleased. They also had a nice selection of Indian imported beers. Excellence

We used to enjoy the week-end buffet lunch at Indus Valley. The food was wonderful and deeply satisfying. But over the past few months it has seriously gone downhill. I was told the chef was the same - maybe he's burning out, or maybe they're cutting costs, or maybe the chef has in fact changed. In any case this is a shame. Once refined and subtle, the dishes are now watery and garlicky, the spices not quite right, the textures soggy. One hopes they will get their act together again.

I never thought I'd see a grape in the middle of a dish of alu gobi, nor did I ever think the potatoes and cauliflower could be in a sweet sauce, but that's how it was made. Otherwise it was pretty tasteless, but beautifully garnished. The vindaloo had a strong burn (good) but very little substance to the taste behind that burn. Only a bit of sweetness when it should have tasted from the vinegar base in the sauce. My first and only time in this pretentious and slightly overpriced restaurant. The service, however, was truly great - but not great enough to overcome poorly prepared food.

I have truly enjoyed everything I have tried at this restaurant. I have dined in the restaurant and also had take out. The food was served fresh and hot all the times and most importantly, full of flavor, the service has always been super. The waitstaff are very attentive. They are helpful when asked for advice or suggestion on the menu as well. The atmosphere is light and happy and the dining experience always enjoy.

We are big fans of Indus Valley, but our most recent meal there left much to be desired. The food was blander and not as fresh, the portions even smaller than usual. I asked if they had a new chef and they said yes. Please bring back the old chef pronto!
