Continues to offer the best Indian meals I’ve had outside of India and UK — not surprising given that the owner’s heritage includes the Delhi Bukhara. Also courteous service, reasonable pricing, good acoustics and no hustling/hurrying of diners.

....at Swagat. Excellent, authentic, interesting dishes (assuming you avoid the couple patently 'catering down' to American tastes); relaxed atmosphere (we sat for 3 hours) courteous, efficient, unobtrusive, friendly service; reasonable pricing. A great resource for the 'hood!

We visit monthly. Terrific Indian cuisine in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Lunch buffets give many choices of quality dishes. Dinner is very reasonably priced and we split an entire tandoori chicken for under 19. Enjoy it here!

Small restaurant but the food is delicious and the service is awesome. Great menu selections for both food and wine. Highly recommend.

Try to make a reservation. Locals know this place is good so it can get busy. Foos is wonderful and service is very fast. Portions are adequate but not oversize.

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,
