Folks, this is by far the best food for takeout/delivery for lunch or dinner. I was addicted to the location in Philly and was happy to locate the older location in NYC. highly recommend this place

1st of all, don't ever take a lady here unless she REALLY loves you or you're trying to get rid of her. it's got a food court atmosphere without the open-air freshness. a lot of loners there so you can eat your cheap lunch in comfortable solitude. one of the best curries masala i've ever had. basmati rice...well, how could you screw that up. too bad they don't have a buffet option so you can try more stuff. however, the quality of the food is not represented in the poor presentation. street food served over a roof. ...at lunch, the staff to patron ration is nearly 1:1. god bless nyc. also, order online to get a 10% discount.

I eat Minar for lunch at least once (sometimes 2 or 3 times) a week. The food is consistently good, the staff is always pleasant (even if the customers are rude rude rude, which seems to happen a lot), and the value is unbeatable. I never spend more than 7 bucks and always leave happily sated. Try the Chicken Tikka Masala - one of the best versions i've found in the city for the price.

I order from Minar once in a while, whenever I crave good Indian food. I grew up with a Guyanese Indian sitter and she cooked for us daily. The food is delicious, my favorite is the saag paneer. Plus, its reasonably priced. Its not a fancy place, the atmosphere is completely functional and the service is blah. But for $7, what do you expect?

This was my first time I ate Indian food from India and the food was great at a very low price. I suggest trying their chai it is very "down to earth".

Food is very very good, and you feel good after this food. Service is not so great.

I eat at Minar for lunch at least once a week and absolutely love it. For under $7 I get a large amount of food, and the chicken tikka masala is delicious as is the naan and rice, and salad. The sauce has just the right level of spice and flavor. As for the decor, it is reminiscent of a cafeteria. I tend to bring a book or magazine with me, and read while I eat as it is the perfect atmosphere for that. This is not the place to impress clients, but if you are in the mood for a great meal at a low price, check it out.
