I have been to a lot of Indian restaurants, and this is definitely one of the best I have ever gone to. Subtle, delicious textures, and interesting unusual dishes, all topped by great service. I can't recommend it enough!

I make a habit of coming here every time I visit NYC. It's a unique place with great, creative food; excellent wine list; and gracious service. It's a quite place - easy for good conversation with friends.

This small, cozy restaurant offers insanely good Indian food. We had the tasting vegetarian menu which was superb. You could taste such a variety of flavors like cilantro, mint, tomato. So, so delicious. What a find!

An intimate appealing restaurant located in midtown on the east side. I'm always warmly received even if they don't know me all that well. Great menu choices from Northern Indian cuisine to Southern Indian cuisine. Everything is always fresh and tasty - and reasonably priced.
