New Green Leaf

I LOVE me some Indian food! Being on a strict diet for the last 6 months, imagine how super excited I was when my boyfriend said "screw our diet for the night & let's get some Indian food!" I often walk pass The Green Leaf on my way to work so I decided to try it out. Boy was I sadly disappointed! I ordered Mater Paneer, normally one of my favorite dishes. It came completely watered down. The sauce was thin and tasteless. It didn't taste like it even had salt & pepper let alone any of the delicious, bold flavors that Indian food is known for! It really just made me sad. Oh & it only came with 3 pieces of the cheese! Boo. Shoulda taken the extra time to drive elsewhere, where I know that the food is always fabulous. Next time I will...

I was a little nervous since no one else was dining - but I decided to chance it. I started with Bhel Puri, which was a bit different than others I've had and pretty tasty. I had a vegetable thali for the main course. It was excellent! Three vegetables (wonderful eggplant, chick peas and spinach, and curried vegetables) served with rice and naan; yummy. Very well prepared, good flavorings. FRESH. And I brought in a bottle of Vinho Verde to drink with dinner. Nice dining experience!

My wife and I have eaten here several times now,and ordered takeout twice. Each time: polite,brisk service (not sure which "unfriendly" person served the people in one of the other reviews here, but we've had the same guy each time and he's been courteous and quite friendly) and...most importantly: reasonably priced, fantastic Indian food. Every single dish we've consumed has been generously portioned,and exquisitely delicious...I kid you not. Honestly, my wife and I would like to see more people in here...but we don't always come at peak hours. And ,apparently they do a lot of delivery, which might explain the sometimes empty chairs. It may not be "hip enough" for the hipster trustafarians to be seen at; not much of a "club" vibe;I guess(but I digress).... Anyway, we've been in Greenpoint for over 20 years, and have never had a good Indian food restaurant..let alone a great one. I hope they're around for a long time. Not to mention: their code rating is an "A"...it's a very clean place. But the food....the food...is great. You will not be sorry...

This place is a little sad, but I'm still glad it's there. It's not the best for sitting in, but it's great if you just want to order in at home on a cold or rainy night. The food is not bad, but I've had some pretty incredible Indian food.. This place doesn't quite measure up. The staff are a little bit hard to communicate with, but they mean well. The food will get the job done, as long as you're not expecting something exceptional.

I have been obsessed with this place since I moved to the neighborhood. The food is awesome and the guys there are super nice. The ambiance leaves a little to be desired, but you can BYOB which makes up for it. Some people on here are ragging on their delivery, so maybe they should just go pick up instead!!

Have eaten in twice and done delivery many times. Chicken Tikka Masala is great, nan good, all around a good spot. In the restaurant the service has ranged from awkward to crazy, but it has never really deterred me since the food is good and why complain, it's NY and people are nuts. Phone manners are similarly absent. Delivery is generally sick fast, though once had a perplexing 50 minute wait. Delivery people have been friendly. It seems like a family-run place that has some family-run kinks, but if you're after Indian in GPNT, it satisfies.

My boyfriend and I have been attempting to support this first Greenpoint curry joint since its inception in the old Socrates Diner. Often against our better tastebuds. Run by a kind, hopeful but directionless bunch, the place has had a slow, but persistent run downhill. Decor neglected, quality cut, prices upped: all notes in the swan song. Which is SAD, as there is such great untapped potential! We wish there was a real chance at redemption, but it requires a Ramsay-ian bollocking of the highest order.
