Delicious Indian food and fantastic naan bread ! We recommend the Palak Paneer and the Chicken Tikka Masala.

We placed an order for Chicken Saag - I made a mistake and just ordered Saag by mistake. We got the food quickly and upon noticing I called the restaurant. I explained to the manager what happened and said I would pay the difference if I could get Chicken Saag delivered. He was amazing and said we will just send you the Chicken Saag. I did not eat any of the Saag and repackaged it to give to the delivery person so that they would not think I was trying to scam them or anything. The delivery person showed up quickly with our Chicken Saag - I went to give him back the original order and he said - please do not worry it is yours. I also went to tip him because of the extra tip and he said no no you don't have to tip again. AMAZING and I forced the additional tip on him. Amazing customer service will get a repeat customer and the food was really really good as well!!!

I ordered food to pick up and walked to the restaurant to pick it up. I checked with them and it was going to be another ten minutes so I went to wait outside. The host was so friendly he came outside to tell me to come inside and sit down, he brought me water, and was just a refreshing personable person. The lamb roll I got was amazing. I also got Chicken Tikka Masala delivered a couple weeks later and that was absolutely unreal. Hot, fresh, delicious, and just the right amount of spicy. Better than the Indian in the EV and a great addition to the LES.

Best Indian food in the area! Lovely staff. Consistently great. We order from here at least once/week for delivery. They make a special Chana Saag for my Vegan husband every time and are very gracious about it. The bread that comes with the Chole Bature is not to be missed! Great samosas. Overall, I've always found them to be very courteous and prompt with delivery. We've also eaten there three or four times and the staff is super friendly and great with our kids. Thumbs UP!

If I could give this restaurant 6 stars I would. There was a mix up and my delivery did not come after 2 hours. I called and their immediate response was friendly, validating, and clear. They made arrangements from their end and the food arrived in less than 20 minutes. And the food was SO good!! The rice was aromatic, the chicken delicious and spicy, and the naan perfectly seasoned! I will definitely order from here again.

So pleased to have ordered from here tonight - the food was delicious. Having being born in Britain, curry is pretty much a staple food in London, Bradford, Manchester. After having lived in NYC for 2 years and trying to find a decent Indian restaurant, tonight has been a breakthrough! Ordered food for delivery, and the flavours were great, portions were perfect for two to share. I would definitely order from here again!
