Fabulous surprise. You dont need to be a vegetarian to love it!
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
Good food and service.
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.
Huge selection, wonderful and rich array of flavors, a rare kosher gem!
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
Solid food every time. Not much atmosphere. Good service, but the place was quiet and we had to flag down the server.
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.
Awsome kosher Indian food i wish it was closer to my house id be there everyday
Navaratna is vegetarian and the menu had a lot of variety. Overall, the food was excellent. The best Sag Paneer I have eaten in the U.S.
The food was absolutely delicious and And the service was quick and efficient. I will definitely go again.
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!
The food was very good. We tried a few chaat options and they were all quite nice.
Very flavorful food, basic luncheonette ambiance- we’ll return for the food
Delicious food and very responsive staff!
Neighborhood gem vegetarian Indian restaurant. Has great food with mediocre service and surroundings. Only true negative is crappy parking....
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!
Food was lovely a good mixture of heat and not too hot. Mango Lassi is a must.
The puffy bread was a spectacular looking and tasted yummy.
Really a great find. Amazing g selection of vegetarian options
This was a great place for family night out. My kids enjoyed trying all the Indian dishes and it was a really wonderful experience to be able to dine outside.
Great Indian food, and staff is helpful explaining menu and food
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.
Simply outstanding vegetarian Indian food. Not the usual recycled curry sauce - you can taste each ingredient. Last time I had Indian food this good was in Rajasthan!
Excellent authentic vegetarian indian food. Excellent and pleasant service.
A fun meal in downtown Stamford. Lots of great, flavorful choices. The service was prompt and friendly.
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.
Real Indian food! Great food bursting with flavor. You won't miss the meat!
The food was very flavorful and fresh. It was great to find a good vegetarian restaurant in Stamford.
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.
The vegetarian menu was fantastic. The service was excellent. Beware if you are not familiar with Indian vegetarian food you will not get much help from servers. Good experience .
Its a vegetarian restaurant. We ordered a South indin Thali and a mumbai Thali. The South indian Thali was much better. the food was spicy. Madhuri our waitress was very nice and she brought us some cold Kingfisher beer.
This restaurant offers abundant tasty choices for vegetarians and vegans. Both northern and southern Indian fare at reasonable prices.
Healthy level of family pride served up here! Enjoy!
Awesome restaurant. Great food great service. Best Dosas in town. I have frequented this place quite a bit. Ramesh owner/operator THE best/.
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.
My wife and I enjoyed very authentic, vegetarian Indian cuisine. The wait staff was very helpful in understanding menu items. The flavors were terrific and I would highly recommend it to folks looking for vegetarian options.
Soups and Desserts are awesome! Try the Chole Bhature
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.
