Because of the excellent Indian restaurant in Jackson Heights Queens by the same name, we decided to eat here on University Place. We were very disappointed. Not only was the food bland, but we both became sick afterward.

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 glass of cold mango juice.

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, various curried vegetables, goat, and a delightfully sweet rice pudding. Inexpensive tasty eats at a...

We began looking for another place to eat and stumbled across Jackson Diner on 72 University Place. The restaurant's sign was large. There was a "Zagat Rated" sign in the window, so we went in.

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!

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighbourhood Profile
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. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighbourhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
