Being a lover of Indian food, know good from bad, having had authentic home cooking/eaten in India all over/eaten at a zillion restaurants, have to say the meal i ordered for delivery recently was perhaps the best example of mediocre, confused, and how NOT to make indian food i've had in a decade. Maybe it was an off meal, but seeing how it was made I doubt it. Just because there's no other Indian restaurant in the area doesn't mean you can stop trying or assume your customers will tolerate it because they have no choice. Overall the entire meal was disappointing. The veg korma (kurma), garlic naan & appetizers were tasteless and not fresh. Naan was gummy, oily, topped with chopped garlic from those bottles (not fresh or yummy). Korma was just weird, unbalanced flavor, heavy/oily, not delicious, and only 3 little balls were given. Mixed appetizers were lame, a over fried veg fritter, an ok banana fritter, a veg samosa that was acceptable. Sides given- dal and shredded cabbage, greasy and flavorless. Good side is prices are great, delivery quick and friendly! Too bad it doesn't make up for lousy food made without love or fresh ingredients Oy vey!

I love this place. The food is great; it's by far some of the best Indian food in the city, plus the servers are nice. -- You will definitely be glad that you went there.

I just ordered $25 worth of food, only a tiny portion of which was edible. The "chicken" dish was almost all mushy vegetables. The coconut soup had no flavor. It was shredded coconut and hot milk - blech. They included two sides, a lentil dish and cabbage. Both were gross and nobody wanted to eat them after one taste. My family loves Indian food and used to eat it a few times a week when we lived around more restaurants. This is my second time giving Kismet a try. It is my last.

I found Kismat a few years ago and have since become a devotee. I eat here at least once a week and always order enough to eat the next day. The food is always tasty and I love that everything can be adjusted to your spice-tolerance as opposed to other Indian restaurants which make everything too spicy to enjoy.

This place used to be the best. Was closed for a few weeks then reopened. Not sure if it's new ownership or what. But the food has definitely changed. I don't recommend.

I called in for a delivery. Service was prompt and courteous. Unfortunately the food has no taste! Very disappointing.

My husband and I order dinner from here about once a week and we're never disappointed. Some restaurants force you to practically scream your order into the phone because they're music is so loud, but Kismat is calm and quiet, you can place an order without having to repeat yourself over and over. I love that about ordering from Kismat. If dining in, the waitstaff is kind and friendly amid a very soothing atmosphere. I order saag matar paneer, a delicious vegetarian dish that mixes nicely with their fresh brown rice. My husband gets the chicken shish kebabs or the tandoori chicken, always moist and delectable. But best of all, their samosas (fried vegetable or beef dumplings) are AMAZING. There are so many Indian restaurants in this city, but Kismat's samosas are by far the best we had both ever tasted.
