The decor is very nice and gives a great feeling of a well regarded restaurants, especially in NJ. However, the biggest disappointment was that the service was below par for a restaurant such as this where pricing is over the top compared with other good restaurants in NY. The waiter who was assigned to our table was clueless about the items as shown in the menu. He provided us the appetizer menu and not the main detailed menu. We had to literally show him what we wanted by pointing towards the items in the menu. Also, I found there were different people serving appetizer, drinks, dinner items etc, as opposed to one person. This was very unusual. Food was generally good, although need to enhance more dinner entrees. You may have to provide proper training to the waiters about timeliness, understand the menus, and be able to suggest items that are popular.

Service is good until the restaurant gets crowded and then things become real slow. Bit pricey but food is good both in taste and presentation. Good cocktails!!

Overall a good experience.

Great ambience and one of the best Indian restaurants I've ever been to in a long time. Quality and presentation of food is exceptional. Compliments goes to the chef, management and staff of this restaurant. I trust and hope that service levels and quality of food will be maintained.

Food, ambience and table setting was great. Service was not the best. Took a long time to get the orders in. The Mumbai velvet margarita was outstanding so was the Malai Chicken, Paneer bullet and the Goat Biryani. Cold air was wafting through the main door into the restaurant so they should improve the entry door way.

Fourth visit and service just sucked. Pity to see a nice place being let down by service and poor management. Food was good. I hope they can get their act together.

We were very happy with the restaurant vibe, food and service at Samudhra. The lounge is a very nice casual seating area which was great to have a drink before the meal. And the food was excellent with the right level of spice. Ambience was upscale and yet not too formal.

We loved it! Starting with the modern, yet comfortable decor, the food, drinks and service, it’s was a clear winner. A tad loud as it fills up, could use some sort of sound absorbing feature. Nevertheless, what a cool and delicious find in our neighborhood! We will be back, a lot.

The ambiance, food was very good. Staff were courteous. Unfortunately the night we went for dinner, the noise from the other table was intolerable. We did ask the bearer to ask them to keep it low but it was of no use. There were quite a few bday celebrations that day but none of it was enjoyable.

Awful Service, Mediocre Food, Good Ambiance..

Went to this place for dinner on Thursday; the restaurant wasn't even 1/3 full so they can't blame the awful service on busy hour. We ordered our food and the waitress asked us to show where in the menu those items are; she took 10 mins going back and forth on the order as some of the items were not available. After taking the order we got two missing dishes that we ordered and waitress acted as if we didn't place any order like that.

Ordered some drinks and a beer; took around 10-12 mins and was told it landed on someone else's table by mistake. duh.....

Food is typical; heavily cheese infused; taste the same not something you can call delicious; the price is more than double as compared to any good Indian restaurant in NJ.

Ambiance is the only positive point of this restaurant; but paying double the price for disappointingly awful service is not what I plan to go for one more time.
Advice to the Management: Ambiance doesn't cut it alone if the service sucks bad with not so great food ...

New place in the area. Nothing worth mentioning about it. Food is like any other standard add salt to taste restaurant types. Place looks upscale with good looking hostess but atleast our server was having no idea about Indian food except talking in good polished english. Even presentation was very lame. Less vegetarian option. The name is a misnomer. Everyone thinks its a seafood restaurant. Atleast my 75 years mother in law thought when i told her abt the place. She is a jain and she was worried. So name cud make ppl think twice before trying out. Although very less seafood on the menu. Will try again and see other stuff...
