    A review for 2010

    ok... let's move into 2010 ... ate here tonight. had a fabulous meal — and we are discerning eaters of indian food! chicken tikka masala outstanding (love that sweet touch!). the bel poori appetizer delicious. samosa crisp and non-greasy. appetizer lamb chops succulent. bread terrific. shrimp and lamb curries wonderful, ras malai excellent. Sapphire more than holds up among New York City's Indian restaurants. Service was fine. Great location so close to Lincoln Center and Time Warner Center. Disregard the bad reviews!

    Not very good

    Let me start by saying that the atmosphwere was great, the service was very good although the waiters are not the friendliest, but that wasn't the problem, the food is by far some of the worst indian food i have ever had. the samosas were hard and dark brown, as if they had been friend and re fried again. None in my party enjoyed the food and we thought it way overpriced. I won't be going back.

    Only venture for buffet and expect rude waiters

    I think the value of the buffet is just fine. The food is pretty decent--nice variety and very vegetarian friendly. What I like most, is the array of raw vegetables and salads alongside the bar. The curries are standard fair, but tasty. The service, even for a BUFFET is the absolute worst. I had two waiters sneering over me when I did not immediately pay. Someone needs to tell their staff to chill our and enjoy service...NO ONE smiles, no one thanks you for being client. DUDES GET A CLUE! I would never pay full dinner prices for such a rude waitstaff, you are paying to dine after all. . .

    Definately Pass, Do not Come here

    I've been here a couple of times over the years, thinking it would get better - I will prob stop coming to this waste of space. Food is ok, but not any better than the other "high end" Indian restaurants, and Sapphire should not be considered a part of that league. Just because you are located in Columbus Circle does not mean you are automatically high end. Service is by far the WORST ever, street side vendors in India are more attentive and client friendly. Would it hurt the waiters to smile and show a bit of emotion or interest in their patrons? I felt like I was in Communist Russia circa 1970. The place has 0 vibe, the food is medicore (not terrible) but the absolutely AWFUL service is a total deal breaker. Although they are not rude, I do not want to go a place where I feel the waiters are doing me favors by serving me. A smille and friendly attitude by engaging the customers goes a long way. You are better off going to the multide of other GOOD Indian spots, definately pass this place, Im surprised they are still in business. I wish there was a better way to get through to the management of how awful their service is.

    Nothing great to write home about...

    Baby Lamb Chops are great. Ordered Chicken Patiala and Lamb Xacutti with Vegetable Biriyani and Naan... ended with Kulfi. Liked the flavor of Chicken Patiala... on the sweeter creamier taste. Lamb was just ok... tasted like any other lamb curry in any other Indian restaurant. Vegetable Biriyani was very average... had better ones in Curry Hill. Kulfi was yummy. Good selection of wine... I had the shiraz and my husband liked the merlot. I would give it another try may be... and just order the Tandoor grill dishes. We spent about $120... the portion sizes were good, but had better food at 3/4 the cost.

    My tastebuds don't lie

    I stopped by Sapphire one night when i just had to get some sustenance before going to bed. I ordered the samosas and they were fantastic! The accompanying sauces were practically drinkable and the pastry was perfectly golden and the filling well spiced. I was so impressed i came back the next day for the buffet which cost me $15 after tax and tip. It was amazing! The lamb biryani was full of huge chunks of meat and the sauteed okra was the most amazing vegetable dish i've ever tried. There was such an impressive aray of choices and the wait staff was wonderful. I really felt like I had stumbled on a gem (pardon the pun). This was just two months ago and when i move tot own in the fall i'm hitting Sapphire as soon as I land. PLUS it's right by Lincoln Center and considering the location i think it's very fairly priced.

    Couldn't even deliver 10 blocks away

    Expected me to have a "big" order for them to deliver to west 72nd st!! Most places do 15 block radius. With the high prices they are charging for food surely they can afford better delivery service.
