We specialize in the cuisine of North & South Indian vegetarian dishes, where cooks typically use rich spices and aromatic herbs to transform intricate conjurations of vegetables, lentils, and rice into tasty meals that are as fulfilling as they are filling. Masala Dosa, Idli, Vada and Sambar are the mainstays of a style of cooking with which all India, and now much of the rest of the world, has fallen in love with.

they advertise wine offerings but several were not available. a basic fruity white and spicy red should be available to pair with the food. OUT OF STOCK! too bad.

We came with a party of 8 guests. The restaurant was nearly empty with only one other table of two. We were not familiar with the cuisine and asked for help in selecting dinners We ended up with 6 out of 8 entrees that were rice based and similar. Although the food was good I think we could have been guided to a more varied selection.
Service was excellent. Perhaps 4 people served the 8 of us. Parking is very difficult

Don’t waste your money on this place. It is poorly run. Food was horrible. They put a table for nine for us in the corner. The walls were dirty. If you had to use the restroom, the floors were very slick.

The waiter didn’t even bother coming by to ask us for our drinks order. After waiting for like 15 minutes I called him to take our drink orders as well as put in our orders. There were only three other families in the restaurant so it was absolutely dead. That tells you something. Never again.

Save your money and go someplace else.

This vegetarian restaurant serves delicious food. An omnivore would not miss meat at this restaurant. The spices are just right and everything is very interesting with Greta service

Second time. Service was average at best. Food good to very good. Don't go for atmosphere. Good choice if you like Greek food and are heading to Palace.

If I were reviewing Navaratna based solely on the food, five stars would not be enough! The flavors at this vegetarian Indian restaurant are spectacular and if we lived nearby, I think we’d eat here at least a couple of times a week. Their only weak point is the service. The waiters are just lovely - polite and helpful, but things can move a bit slowly, particularly if you order a Mint Cooler. I don’t know how they make it, but, in my opinion it is worth the 20 minute wait. If a slower pace is not a problem for you and you love authentic Indian food, Navaratna is going to be your new favorite restaurant!

A great restaurant, even if you aren't vegetarian, you'll find something that will appeal and very tasty. A range of appetizers, main dishes and sides...all with tremendous flavor and spices. As a Paleo with a bunch of vegetarians in my family, this is a "go to" restaurant for us!

The food was excellent. But the bathroom was dirty and off putting. It's a pity that such good food is served in such poor settings. The restaurant needs to upgrade its cleanliness. I don't care if the decor isn't fancy but clean and tidy is a minimum requirement. The food is about the best Indian food I have had in the US.

This restaurant had good quality vegetarian food, but I would like it if they, and other Indian restaurants, had low fat and whole grain options. The service was good, and the waiters were friendly.

I love Indian food and I'm excited to have found a restaurant with such an extensive menu!
It was hard to choose from so many vegetarian options, so I'm looking forward to returning often to try all the other interesting selections. The dish that I can't wait to order again, though, is the Gobi Malligai (crispy cauliflower with mint an cilantro). It was amazing! It's very green but not overly minty.

Absolutely authentic cuisine. A bonus that it can be also vegan and kosher. Who knew Indian food could accommodate so many palates? It may sound weird but the Manchurian style baby corn is delicious. But go for the dosas and the idlis, and don't forget the carrot cake dessert.

Sometimes commercially prepared Indian food can be a bit uninspired and uniform. This food existed on an entirely different planet. No more ho-hum but perfectly edible stews. Yummy flavors, just the right amount of heat, much more complexity. A much more enjoyable dining experience.

I was expecting a real restaurant. The place looks like a sandwich place. It has no atmosphere. This a place to grab a quick lunch. It is not a place for dining. The food is very tasty. The service is a bit on/off, and the host needs to smile. However, when a woman left her sweater, one of the waiters went outside to find her; that was a lovely thing to do.
