You could easily miss Utsav, an Indian restaurant situated on a nondescript strip mall in Vernon, CT. Don’t. It serves excellent, interesting food at very reasonable prices. In several trips we’ve had a variety of appetizers and entrees there, and we've never been disappointed. Our last time, we had a Tandoor-cooked chicken appetizer, naan with garlic and cilantro, and a lamb dish with an almond-cashew sauce – everything was first-rate. Didn’t have dessert that night, but on another occasion we shared an unusual, delicious carrot pudding. There’s a nice luncheon buffet, although you can always order ala carte. Full bar, good service. The décor is bright and well-lit. Haven’t been to all of them, but this has to be among CT’s best Indian restaurants

Utsav WOW'd us!
We got back from vacation to the Hartford Airport, CT. Googled Indian restaurants, and Utsav had top reviews.
Well, no wonder! Cos the food is truly exceptional, nuanced. The spices in the right combination, which is not easy.
The service was elegant and professional-Kiran was friendly, knowledgeable. The rest of the crew also gave exceptional, discreet service.
We are coming back from Vermont. Soon. And bringing friends!

The wait staff here is beyond amazing. They are extremely professional, fast and friendly. The quality and ambiance of Utsav is on par with the Max restaurants. If you never had Indian food, this place is the best around to start! The cocktails are super fresh and amazing. Try the cucumber one.

Food is decent but I don't like how prices are more expensive than other restaurants in the area. Also why are you all going up on your prices like every month?! Lunch buffet was $10 and now it's $11.95 and no seafood options?!

In addition you are filling up the foods with fillers to cut down on your costs while decreasing the value of my dollars. I feel like you are taking advantage of hardworking people by charging outrageous prices for your food because it is "exotic" for the area.

I think you need to reconsider your prices. Don't think I will be going back because it feels like I'm being used....
