    Server kept forgetting to put in our order such that we didn’t get food until like an hour in - other tables who came in after us were done and gone before we even got our first bite. He then brought out wrong dishes and then blamed the kitchen staff for it. He literally said “it’s not my fault. The kitchen staff doesn’t know how to read”. Food was not good. Would not go back, which is too bad because the decor is nice.

    Food is amazing. My friend and i got the dinner pre fixe which is a good deal. The service was sub par especially for the price, area, and type of restaurant. Don’t know if they weren’t happy working on Christmas Day.

    Great decor and cozy vibes, extensive drink menu and outstanding food. For a west village restaurant it was buzzing and lively on a Saturday without being too intense. The Dal Makhani was some of the best I’ve ever had. We loved it and will be back!!

    We decided on this place because it looked so quaint and had great reviews and was in west village close to our hotel! Well……this is a hidden gem of NYC!! Don’t hesitate one second to go here - just book it and go! 10/10!!!! Service - was excellent. They were busy on arrival and our table wasn’t ready but we sat at the bar and had amazing cocktails that are well crafted and have originality with traditional flavours! Our food was a bit delayed but I think was exceptionally busy and we were not in a rush so we didn’t mind the wait! FOOD! The food will BLOW YOUR MIND! we have had Indian food all over the world! This was in our top 3! Madras rail chicken curry - I’m still dreaming about this! Deep complex flavours that are so delicious it’s hard to describe! Chicken biryani - just do it! AMAZING!! Chicken Tikka curry - superb! Garlic naan and plain naan 🫓- outstanding! All dishes 10/10! The chef came out and we had a lovely chat with him and enjoyed our evening tremendously. Small business owner who is conscientious and caring! 100% book this place!

    After arriving for our reservation, we watched numerous tables come in after us and leave before we had even received our food. We waited 1+ hour to get anything and our appetizer came after our entrees (which we tried to cancel at that point but remained on the bill). Apparently there had been an issue with the printer in the kitchen, but no other tables seemed to have been delayed and no communication was given to us about this. While we waited, our drinks sat empty and our water wasn’t refilled. They brought us complimentary naan (after we already finished our food) but never apologized and didn’t offer to make it right. The food was good, and I’m not one to complain about service, but I wish they had been more communicative with us about what was going on. I would only recommend for takeout as service appears to be a recurring problem for this restaurant.

    We decide to try the restaurant having see it on Open Table a few times. While the restaurant has a nice feel on the inside and attentive staff, the food was subpar. The Tandoori chicken was not what we expected, not fall of the bine delicious, it was undercooked and had a rubbery texture. The other dishes were way too heavy on the salt. Unfortunately we wouldn't recommend spending the money, we certainly won't be returning.

    I really wanted to like this restaurant. Perfect West Village location, a nice small intimate interior just like you'd expect in the village, and that's where the higher stars end. The food is Indian-like (not great, but ok), the drinks are very good (a great bartender), and the worst music I've ever heard played in a restaurant at the dinner hour -- rock and roll and fairly loud. The music made the whole experience very disappointing for me so I would not recommend the place.

    Serving up traditional Indian cuisine in the West Village, the exemplary service makes diners feel VIP. Tip, the prix fixe includes drink, side and entree for $45 is worth sampling. I had the lamb main and cauliflower side and both were delicious.
