This is not really a restaurant but a takeout/delivery service. We love the food, find the portions to be huge (20 rotis) and spiced just right. I don't want to smell like asofoetida at the end of a meal and appreciate the light hand. More importantly, their light hand with oil and cream is also a welcome change. Don't love the delivery fee, but their food is so inexpensive compared to an actual Indian restaurant that it doesn't make a difference in the end.

Great idea and convenient if you don't have time to cook during the week. Food is quite tasty and they offer a good range of healthy options.

The quantity in each sabzi pot is a bit light considering the total cost incl. tax and delivery charge. The delivery time for Manhattan on Monday is way too late. They say 6-10pm but the food was actually delivered well past 10pm. If they can't make Monday work at a reasonable time they shouldn't offer it as an option in the first place.

They bring you prepared food to your door. You just have to throw it in the microwave and you have fresh great food for dinner. Also much cheaper than ordering from an Indian Restro.
The meals here are amazing and super fresh, the menu changes weekly and they always taste different from each other - I really enjoy the new/different flavors.

We have been ordering fro this place for a while. Food is not greasy, has low sodium and they deliver. Its like home cooked food but most dishes lack flavor.
They also try to skim on ingredients. For example, the baingan bartha was cooked in a tomato base. WHen we called to inquire if we got the correct dish, we were told that they are trying out a variation of baingan bhartha. Of course, we didnt buy that.
More recently we ordered baingan-aloo and this was full of potato.
They dont take credit card but are quick to charge tax. When we confronted them, they agreed to take a check as payment.
We might continue to use this service as a convenience but the food is nothing to brag about.

First the good - food was decent and non-greasy so it's not a bad tiffin service.

Then the reasons for a two star - Firstly, the website says $43. But when it came time to pay, it was $46 (before tip) including $3 for tax. Yet they only accept cash and don't provide a bill. Means they not only cheat the Internal Revenue Service, but are fooling us as well. They don't pay any taxes!

Secondly, it was very hard to reach them. Can't on the phone, only respond via email.
