The location is great - a few minutes walk from the Metropolitan Opera. We attended a matinee and an evening performance on the same day, so needed a convenient and not too expensive place to eat in between shows. It's popular with Lincoln Centre patrons - after the matinee it filled up quite quickly, but it is spacious and gracious.... More

The restaurant was vacant and there were servers everywhere but none seemed to want to work. We were waiting at our table for over two hours waiting for terrible food. I wouldn't recommend anything but the lamb was especially terrible.

The lamb chops were probably the best The shrimp sauce was very bland and unimaginative The lamb was tough The ginger chicken cane with huge chunks absolutely no flavor The bread basket was cold and naans leathery The servers were stoic and typically the male chauvinists that are commonly encountered in India especially towards other Indian women

I went to this restaurant by Columbus Circle and the food was amazing! I had the lamb chops, chicken korma, malai kofta, garlic naan and a cabernet sauvignon! The food was so delicious! I have recommended various friends whom have gone and enjoyed their experience as well. I returned a second time and sat at the bar and met some... More

I dined here after teaching class it next door to NYIT. The restaurant decorum is quite nice and they had a buffet lunch available. The seating was ample and the wait staff was very courteous and professional. The buffet offerings were varied and all was very tasty, which also included dessert items. I look forward to dining here again when... More

My friend and I went to the lunch buffet after watching a rehearsal of the Philharmonic Orchestra at Lincoln Center. Great selection of appetizers, main dishes and desserts. Courteous staff and good atmosphere.

I have passed by this restaurant many times, but I assumed that it was one of those sub-par, fast food, Indian restaurants that only cater to the "lunch hour" crowd. I did read the Yelp reviews, but I was skeptical of their authenticity. I finally gave in because I needed a quality, not terribly expensive restaurant that was within walking... More

Good food. We liked what we ordered. Chicken masala with rice and some other good dishes. The service is very nice and professional (even too much but it's better than none)

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
