Absolutely love the Jackson Diner. The food is mouthwatering, fresh and fantastic. The lunch buffet is only a problem because eventually I can't stuff one more bite of deliciousness into my mouth. The chicken korma and the sag chana are my favorites, with a tall...More

It's so bizarre to see a restaurant called a diner that is actually an Indian restaurant lol. When we walked by and read the menu, it wasn't what I expected! We enjoyed the standard Indian lunch buffet with all your favs: tandoori chicken, daal, naan,...More

Delicious chicken tikka masala and garlic naan. Would highly recommend this place to anyone craving Indian food. They can alter the spice level to your taste. Service is professional, timely and in general great!

Indian food very good...we liked doing lunch because we get to try a bunch of different dishes for a great price. Lots of vegetarian dishes. A must when you visit is the rice pudding. Do not leave without trying it!

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
