If you live in the Upper East side and DON'T try this place, even if you are allergic to Indian food, you are out of your gord. For serious. Delivery, eat in, you can't lose. You will have your water refilled so many times it will seem like it is raining the nectar from the very ceiling above you. The Chana Baji is an unexpected delight with the lamb anything as a main course. The decor is decadent & outrageous, and that is a good thing somehow.

I hope it was just an off day, but the Tandoori chicken was very salty and dry. Biryani was very pale and flavorless. Definitely cooked incorrectly. I will not return.

You will find the food at Mumtaz to be of great value for your money. With each entree comes free "dal". The service is spectacular so as the soothing atmosphere. You will be able to enjoy quiet dining in this upper east restaurant.

Food delivered is excellent. I have ordered over 50 meals by delivery and have never had a bad experience. The food is fresh - as if it had just come out of the kitchen. The food is of high quality, the sauces are authentic and well balanced, and the samosas and lassis are tasty.

This blows away all those Indian places down in the Village. Simply outstanding! The decor is a little brothelesque with it's red velvet coated walls, but it makes for a really fun experience.

Beef vindaloo (whether it's on the menu or not) and tandoori chicken. These two things, from Mumtaz, constitute the best Indian meal in New York City. Nowhere else will you find tandoori chicken so moist and so thoroughly infused with flavor. They obviously marinate it for plenty of time, a rarity in Indian restaurants. The beef vindaloo is somehow better than any other vindaloo I've had in New York, in a way that is difficult to describe. This despite the odd tough piece, which is unavoidable, I think. Get it spicy, and mix it with rice and, if necessary the dal that comes free with the meal to cut the spiciness.

Simply the best Indian food in history. Healthy fresh ingredients -- yum.
