Not a great meal, although fresh ingredients and good quality seafood the sauces on both the jinga shrimp starter and jinga shrimp jalfrazi were very bland. Overall very average and over priced.

An extensive menu of classic Indian cuisine with classics service. Every dish I have had has been delicious. Reservations recommended as it tends to fill up in the evenings.

We often eat here before a jazz show at Jazz at Lincoln Center. The appetizers are amazing, and they have a good range of main dishes. Lamb Jardaloo is our favorite, and they also make good seafood dishes.

When the three of us ducked in out of the rain, it was a bit concerning that the place was empty, but the maitre d' welcomed us, put our umbrellas into plastic bags and showed us to a table at the window. A good start....More
