Clearly the worst Indian food I've ever eaten. This is my first and last time ordering from this restaurant. I ordered the Samosa (mediocre sadly the high point), the Aloo Bengan, Shrimp Malai and Naan Bread. I was shocked at the blandness of the food. I've never put salt on Indian food, but I was really hungry and it was the only way to get it down. The Aloo Bengan was oily and bitter. Only the middle part of the naan (the ends were huge lumpy blobs of dough) was edible. Even the coriander sauce was too sweet. The cabbage that comes with the meal was completely tasteless. Another failure in a neighborhood of culinary let downs. Will someone please open an inexpensive, good restaurant? Our neighborhood is in desperate need of good eats.

Went here a few weeks ago with friends and had a nice, relaxing meal. I have always found the service to be friendly and attentive, though on the serious side. The food is very good and the prices are excellent. The delivery service is also extremely fast. I will definitely continue to patronize this restaurant and recommend it for a nice night out that won't break the bank!

Been eating from Kismat on and off for three years now. As long as your order's simple and you get it to go or get it delivered, you're fine. Very serviceable food, especially given there aren't a ton of great options around. Otherwise, the restaurant itself is in need of serious spit-and-polish, and the staff has turned rude indifference into an artform.

Longtime WaHi residents may think this is good Indian takeout but it's below Baluchi's, by far, and certainly not nearly as good as 'good' Indian food you find scattered around the city. UWS has better Indian food, and that's not saying a lot. Tawaa's slightly better, but we need better Indian food than Kismat.

Fast delivery, TOTALLY delicious, will accommodate any request (vegan, diabetic, etc.) Restaurant itself is overcrowded and kind of a weird shade of green

this place isn't to everybody's taste but we LOVE it! we eat here and order in from them all the time - when we moved to a new place in the neighborhood, the delivery guy commented on it! They are actually Bangladeshi, not Indian (which I think addresses some of the complaints in other reviews).

I love this place and go here when in the mood for their shrimp tandoori. Huge shrimp and oh so good! I have been going there for years and honestly have never had bad service or attitute even when I have gone in with my messy toddler (rice on floor, you name it). I would have given it a higher rating for atmosphere but let's face it, it isn't some fancy downtown lounge. I just ordered in so they are probably relieved that I am not bringing my crazy baby in there right now :-)
