    Good Deal Average Food

    I was hungry enroute to Westchester from Manhattan. Typed in Indian on google maps. This place popped up. First thing that struck me was the number of good reviews. This place does have plusses. Decent serving portions. Free cabbage and daal with each entree. Quick service. The food is however mediocre. I am vegetarian and south Indian but I know good Indian food having grown up in Delhi Bombay and madras. This is not good food, especially if you are looking for authentic food. The problem is one of geography. We are 1.5 billion people in the subcontinent with tremendous diversity. What passes for default Indian food is typically the North Indian food of the arc from Delhi to Peshawar. Many restauranters are from Bangladesh which is at the other end. Kind of like going to a ukranian place for good Paella. My guess is that fish dishes will be good as will the desserts as Bengalis really excel in those.

    please get better!

    i really really wish the food was better. there are not enough options uptown so i've given this place so many chances. other than some of the appetizers i've consistently been disappointed. i hope that the owners read this: improve the taste and quality of your food, please.

    Excellent

    This food is delicious. Period. Not just because there are no other Indian places around, it's simply good. I had chicken kurma and loved it. And the soup that came with it for free was great too. Oh my god, it's not authentic? Who cares.

    Consistently good

    Quit your bitchin’ about the authenticity of Indian cuisine in NYC- especially Manhattan and especially in Washington Heights. This is not your mama’s kitchen and don’t expect not to find the ingredients that you don’t like and the over-stretched smiles when you pick up your order. The service is courteous and the bottom line is- the food is great. Personally, my drug of choice is lamb masala paired with mulligatawny soup.

    Bland, Overpriced, Gristley Blah.

    I had chicken tikka masala delivered- the delivery was prompt, but that was the only good point. The naan was doughy and undercooked, the chicken was full of gristle and overcooked, and the sauce was bland, thin, and oily. I wouldn't order again.

    delicious

    we love this restaurant, take out or eat in. One of the few Washington Heights local restaurants that delivers truly delicious food. We've been eating indian food together for close to 15 years and this is one of our favorite restaurants ever. Yummy!

    Authentic Indian Food it is NOT!

    I decided to take a chance and order from here being that the reviews were so mixed...well I shouldn't have. I decided to go the safe route and get a chicken Tikka and it was tasteless. The naan was average and I could have made a better raita in my own kitchen. Not only was the raita tasteless it was completely over priced for the portion size. I am a frequent Indian food eater, I would never recommend this establishment to anyone I know. Please take my word for it, it is not worth the risk!
