    Well worth a Visit

    Excellent restaurant! Great selection of Food and Wines. The food was excellent, extremely tasty and the ingredients tasted fresh and well prepared really good spices and flavours. Always busy with a good atmosphere and a friendly, polite and efficient team of staff. Try the Chicken Chilli Masala AMAZING!!

    Simply terrible

    The only good part of this restaurant is that there are tables outside. Other than that, the service and food were absolutely awful. Im lactose intolerant and asked the waiter if one of the plates had any dairy -he assured me that there was no dairy several times. When the plate arrived, turns out it was covered in yogurt. When I told the waiter, he said he didn't associate yogurt with dairy! My salad was also terrible and I asked for a side of vinegar and took 15 minutes to arrive. Overall, a terrible restaurant.

    No thanks, will not return

    The decor is very nice, but the food is not so great. We had the 5 course seafood tasting menu, and the fish was bland, the lobster was undercooked and the soup was extremely spicy. When they serve the soup, they should also provide naan to offset the hotness. We had ordered naan separately but they didn't serve it until we asked. Several of the dishes were spicy, which I thought was not a good reflection of a tasting menu since it should have a variety of flavors. Hostess was rather haughty too. Too much hype, not enough substance.

    Very nice dinner option

    I noticed some of the negative reviews in here and thats quite disapointing. While I agree its a bit pricey and they could spend some time developing the food, I definitely enjoyed myself there. The big winner here was service 100%. Our waittress, this adorable girl from Belarus knew every dish like she had created it herself. They were helfpul and let us stay there for over 2 hours but often asked us if we needed anything without being annoying. The service made you feel at ease and like you were literally about to have a "dining experience." The restaurant is GORGEOUS. The flowers in the pond on the first floor and the waterfall. Really really pretty. I think the prices were definitely worth the service, decor, atmosphere, and experience. Only the food could be better developed. The spices were very strong but I hesitate in saying that its because they dont know how to cook it bc i dont know authentic Indian food. She made her recommendations and I wasn't the person choosing the food so I dont know if I'd picked something else, if I would have enjoyed it more. All in all, very nice.

    Subpar

    Go elsewhere! My husband & I went thinking it sounded like an interesting menu. We ordered the scallop appetizer and which was mediocre. I ordered the tandoori skirt steak and asked for no churrasco in the side. I had a very hard time cutting the steak as it was very tough and also got churrasco. My husband ordered the NY strip and it was full of grissle and he ate about half. We each had a glass of wine and the bill was over $100.00. We could not get out of there fast enough.

    Not worth the price!!

    The food was just not good quality. I got a chicken dish and while the flavor was good (but not any better than your average, much less expensive, take out indian place) the actually chicken in it was fatty, chewy, and of very poor quality. My boyfriend's steak was just not a good cut of meat either and it was overpowered by the sauce. Additionally, the drinks that we ordered before anything else did not arrive until after the appetizer.

    Tries too hard

    The flavor profiles were a bit off. several of the dishes we tried had over powering or underpowered seasonings, which respectively detracted from the dish's main ingredients or didn't allow the dish's flavors to shine. Friday evening 8 pm. place was EMPTY. Nice that there was a lot of room for my party to enjoy. But it's empty for a reason. Not worth the price of admission. At least not in NYC, when you have so many options...
