    Great Food. A little pricey.

    The food here is as good as you'd get at the best Indian restaurants in New York. I'm especially addicted to the Lamb Malai. The Naan is very good as well. It's a little pricey to feed two or three people but in my opinion well worth the price for some of the best food in the city. They are extra nice on the phone and the delivery guy is a cool dude.

    Not good food

    I am not Indian, but have eaten enough Indian food in America, and enough food in general to know that this is not good Indian food. I am not criticizing the authenticity, just the qulaity. I agree with the other reviewer. I love Indian food and would really like to see Kismat improve. It is always inconsistent. We order the same thing every time and the sauce will be thick and creamy one day and thin and watery the next day. The naan is doughy. I still order from here on occasion, but would far more frequently if the food improved.

    Bland but Fresh

    I got the vegetarian dinner for two, which was easily enough food for 4 people. The sauces were thin, bland, and underseasoned, but at least the vegetables were fresh. I'd call it Indian food fit for old women and children. I don't think I'll order here again. Such a shame there's nothing in the neighborhood!

    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.
