Service esa poor, the captain was pushing to order and forced to order according to house rules rather than trying to accommodate party requests

The food is incredible. I tasted 9 dishes and non of them tasted below amazing. BUT the interior of the restaurant is so boring that I would never want to celebrate my special days here. Especially the larger room at the back gives a very uninteresting, dull impression. You know when your opinion is asked about restaurants, by people you want to impress; I can’t confidently suggest “Indian Accent” in that situation because of the lack of taste in decoration and the atmosphere. But again, the food is the complete opposite of the decoration, it’s incredible and full of culture.

Couldn’t have had a better time and left wondering why it had been so long since we’d been in. Continues to be one of the best values in NYC and also has one of the strongest beverage programs in the city. Such a pleasure!

I heard heard great things about the place. But was quite disappointed. The service was terrible. Vegetarian and nonvegetarian food was all mixed up. The menu was not explained properly. Nobody bothered to refill the water glasses or clean the tables like they should in a Michelin star restaurant. Only saving grace was when the manager came out and apologized and comped us for one round of drinks.

First, the food is amazing.
The service was subpar (especially for a meal of that cost, imho).
I went with my girlfriend around 10:00 PM (we had just come from a play and were really excited to try the restaurant).
We were greeted warmly and seated promptly. However, we then waited an extraordinarily long time for a server to even speak to us or acknowledge us at all (15+ minutes). In fact, after asking if we could just order our drinks from the individual who by then had poured our third glass of water, eventually, we also had to ask the same individual pouring water why we had not had a server come to our table yet because we were getting so hungry.
Then, our cocktails were not brought to us both a really long time after we were seated and a really long time after we had ordered them. It was not crowded nor was it busy. However, there was a large amt of wait staff working. I don’t understand what the problem was. But it felt like we were an afterthought or “not important enough” for them to pay attention to us, for sure, because I watched other tables around us that were seemingly barraged with waitstaff, food, and drinks.
After we complained about the fact that we had still not gotten our drinks for so long (which would not have been such a big deal in and off itself, but was compounded by the total lack of service we had received since sitting down while tables seated after us appeared to have cocktails and food long before we were even able to order our drinks, much less our food), the manager comped our first round of drinks (which by then, had come with our second course of the meal). It was a nice gesture, but also appropriate considering the ridiculous wait. From that point forward, however, the service did also improve and was good.
Again, the food was so creatively-plated, well-executed, and all-around was wonderful.
In sum, I would go back and just hope the service we received this time was an anomaly and would be better next time.

Food flavors and taste were excellent.
In a fine dining restaurant one does not expect to be forced to use hands to eat- Food was too bony and hard to eat.
Crab claws- a struggle to get meat out- shell had not been cracked properly and when I requested for it , I was told to use my hands
lamb chops-too bony
chicken - had big bones.
Restaurant was a bit loud.
service could be better - wait er was not attentive - had to ask for silverware, side plates , and again a fork spoon or knife for each course.
Need to step up overall service

Our first time here
Nothing prepared us for the experience
The presentation was outstanding and the tastes were unlike anything we had experienced before
The chat and chutneys were just amazing
Kudos to the chef

On the other hand, service was very slow
Sometimes it felt we had been forgotten about
The fenugreek chicken was somewhat dry, but still flavorful
Dessert was fabulous too

This extraordinary Indian restaurant would deserve at least a one star with Michelin. The food is carefully and artistically prepared and is like no The tasting menus other Indian restaurant I have been to here in the US. The tasting menus have an extraordinary range of preparations to satisfy every appetite.
The service is attentive and helpful in explaining the variations in the dishes.
The cocktail menu is also creative.

Very competent chef and delicious food though some of the preparations and flavorings were a bit repetitive. For example, three items we chose came as a pairing of two “balls” in a sauce. Expensive but New York midtown real estate drives a lot of that. Very good and fun. Some good red wine options for spicy food too.

Just AWESOME, this is not a "pick your protein and sauce" kind of Indian. Come prepared with an open mind to explore some original interpretations and flavor combinations. This is a gastronomic journey for foodies ...

Most interesting Indian food I’ve ever had! Great service too. Highly recommend to anyone unless they are looking for a romantic night. Too loud and too much going on for that. Not that it was too loud, just not a romantic atmosphere.
