As many people have stated below, the food is very average and you can get much more authentic Indian food in NY, BUT, the atmosphere and service is worth it! This is not a place for people who don't like to get their neighbor and have a fear of tiny places. You will bump elbows with everyone. All part of... More

The lights that surrounded the place was a nice touch and they shot the famous TV series "Daredevil" here. when ever it was somebodies birthday they... More

very colorful and funny restuarant. Food is ok and prices are reasonable we did spent a nice night. Only a couple of concern about health and safety and also i did not like the fact that you can't order almost anything to drink.

A wide range of the usual Indian foods. Good rather than great, excellent service and great value. Fun decor. Not world class, but good and tasty. I would cheerfully go back. If you haven't tried Indian food before, this world be a good place to start. You will have a good time and enjoy the flavors. Beware, cash only.

Milon is a restaurant in a section of 3 which all seemed to have similar decor and food. We went to this one as we thought it was the one that features in the most recent Netflix series of Daredevil, but we couldn't be sure. Yes, the decor is crazy and looks beautiful from the pics but once you get... More

We went here for a friends birthday dinner recently - we had extreme difficulty getting into the restaurant first of all as it was very cramped. We then all sat and ordered from a set menu they produced which showed $20 per person. We all ordered appetizers and main dishes. Only 7 of the appetizers came out, leaving 6 of... More

When you get inside the restaurant you are immediately immersed in dangling colored lights. It's like Bollywood club meets restaurant. The food was good. We got chicken tandoori masala, chicken coconut curry, and chicken biryini. All had good flavor but a bit small of portions for what I was expecting. First tip- make reservations. This is a small restaurant and... More

Staying in East Village

Neighbourhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighbourhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
