Mumtaz India Restaurant
Posted by Glen on 06/12/2010
My entire family has been eating here at Mumtaz for over 25 years, a special treat we always enjoy. We live on the West Side of Manhattan where there hasn't been an Indian restaurant there that can touch Mumtaz for delicious meals, breads and attentive service. We drive over from the West side to the East side, it's worth the trip! I especially love their Vindaloo, Saag and Korma dishes and the breads are never greasy. I've taken business associates and friends here who have returned themselves having enjoyed their time here. Truly one of the best Indian restaurants in Manhattan.

I knew the food wasn't good when I bit into the first piece of chicken in the chicken masala. The chicken was obviously not simmered long enough in the sauce, and you can smell the unpleasant smell of insufficiently cooked chicken. The chicken tikka masala was extremely sweet, making me think that I was eating sweet and sour chicken! Even the samosa was cold and mediocre. This was by far the worst Indian food I ever had in my life.

Their shrimp malai, lamb vidaloo, chicken tandoori are abosolutely delicious! I would also recommend the soft puffed poori for the appetizer along with the roshi malai for desert. This is undoubtably one of the best places I've been to in a long time.

I've dined in some of the finest and most expensive Indian restaurants in the city but none compares with Mumtaz. The cuisine is superb as is the service. It's cozy size is perfect for a tete a tete, and there's never any rushing as with the midtown fineries.

It's hard to go wrong with classic indian dishes like chicken tikki masala and pishwari naan bread, but this place totally misses the mark. The food is bland and not flavorful. Huge disappointment. I would not recommend ordering from here.

Mumtaz always delivers, especially when you take the time to visit their restaurant - which is a charming visceral mix of a subway car and a brothel. This may sound negative, but when you get there, you will see what I am talking about - excellent, authentic NYC atmosphere. The Chana Baji is incredible, as is the Lamb Masala. Great restaurant, staff and food. Highly recommended.

Bland, tasteless, overcooked. Very dissappointing. I'm from India and this has got to be the poorest Indian food I've tasted in New York. Don't waste your money here.
