Place is very small so plan to be cozy with the other guests but, the food is spot on and the service is meticulous. If you are in the mood for Indian you won't go wrong here.

Looks a little old from the outside and the furnishing are a bit worn but the food is really food. We had a great Talli and Chicken Vindaloo lunch which was great , service prompt.

Food was much better than expected based on previous replies, not as 'spicy' as would've hoped, but when I go back will just ask them to make spicier... Small restaurant, good service, good quality food, cooked well, if you are considering, I'd recommend just giving it a go!

You get very good Indian food. Its absolutely Indian food with right spices. Recommend to eat Paneer preparations and paratha. Everything is brilliant. Staff is also very good. Its a relief to get good Indian food there. I have visited this place many times and i suggest its must place to eat.

I could become a regular here... good Korma, enough for two days, decent prices and you probably dont need a reservation if you want to dine at the restaurant. Very accommodating service.

While billed as a "Bengali" restaurant, Ruchi does not really have any bengali fare on its menu. However, the fare does represent a diversity of dishes from across India - from the Konkan coast to Kashmir. I would highly recommend the various kebabs on the menu, as well the Hyderabadi Salan. Good whole wheat rotis perfectly accompany the down-to-earth and... More

There are many people inside the restaurant, I was alone, so I waited for the staff to come and greet me. The staff is very helpful to look for a seat for me, finally got one by spliting the table from an indian friends.

Their lunch specials are delicacies served for a very cheap price in expensive cities like NYC. I was there only once but its registered in my brain permanently

Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
