Dishonest 8/13/2007

My sister and I were interested in eating Indian and came across this Baluchi's location. We were excited to see that they gave a 20% discount for students because my sister is currently. The food was fine, the chicken was a bit dry, but it was the service that was really bad. It was either too attentive or not at all. And to top it off, they ripped us off. After we were told that one rice came with the table during ordering, we were surprised to see the charge on the bill. It was also a little strange that the rice on the bill was in a different color ink from the other things we ordered. What we deduced was that they added the rice on to the bill after my sister had handed them her student id card for the discount. I think this amounts to fraud and if I had the energy I would have argued. I would pass on this place. Cons: Dishonest service more

Go somewhere else! Anywhere else! 11/13/2006

Seriously, do not go to this Baluchis location. The food is mediocre, but the (stereotypical new york things that crawl that citysearch won't allow you to include in your reviews)? Totally disgusting!! Now, I understand that in the warmer months, it's nice to have the door and windows open. This may mean that you will get a few little critters coming in every now and then. That is understandable. However, when you are sitting eating your meal and notice that there are multiple nuclear holocaust surviving crawly things _in your table_ (as in underneath the glass, living and possibly procreating in the table), that is just disgusting. At first glance, the old doors converted into tables are a good idea. But when you realize that there are c*ckr**ches just chilling out in there crawling all around, not such a good idea. You would think that the management would apologize and at least feign shock that there are hideous insects at your table. Instead, they laughed when we finally noticed and then proceeded to do nothing about it, like offer to move us to a table not occupied by said insects or give us a drink on the house so we can forget how horribly disgusting the restaurant is, or perhaps just apologize and blame the weather. Nope, it seemed to them that laughing at us was the appropriate response. Don't waste your time. Don't waste your money. Go anywhere else in the city. Cons: The things living in the table; the management's inappropriate response more

How is this place still open??? 9/26/2005

I can't believe this place is still in business. After waiting for 40 mins for our meal, the food came out cold, surprising as we were 1 of 3 in the restaurant. We asked our server if we could get the food warmed up and he had to consult with another waiter to see if it was even possible! Slow service..terrible Indian food..save you $$ and go the numerous other Indian restaurants in the village. Needless to say, we will not be returning to this one. Pros: prompt seating Cons: bad food, slow service more

Not bad. 2/28/2005

Growing up I ate a lot of homemade Indian food and Baluchi's didn't really cut it for me. I went with a large group from my school and the staff accomodated for us well. The service was great and the staff was polite, punctual, and well versed on the food. The ambiance is also nice and quite pretty. However, the indian food was less authentic than I expected and was definitely slightly Americanized, at least for my table. The samosas and chicken kabobs were great tho, spicy but not too much, and seasoned well. I did enjoy the palak paneer- one of my favorite dishes, a spinach and cheese puree. The chole and tandoori chicken were passable. The naan was decent, and the korma rather soggy. Its definitely good to try, especially if you've never had indian before, but try bukhara grill if you want the reall stuff. Pros: accomodating groups Cons: unauthentic more

Quiet, straightforward Indian 12/12/2004

We went late on a Saturday night after two rather large martinis in the Village, and Baluchi's provided just what we needed. Reliable, quick Indian food, with good service at a reasonable price. The Combination appetiser was terrific, the Chicken Tikka Masala, just what you'd expect. We were a little disappointed with the Lamb in Spinach: not enough spice to make it individual; and the keema naan carried too much oil to be a winner. But definitely a reliable choice overall. more

UKinNYC 11/14/2004

Being from the UK, where curry is an institution I'm often disapointed by the quality on offer in NYC. However, I thought the food here was great - full of flavour, well spiced and very well presented - the sagwalla in particular is excellent. oh, and there was certainly plenty of it - I often suspect people who put ""portions weren't as large as hoped"" or simliar are probably being saved from themselves. Would certainly visit again and also recommend to friends. Pros: Food, Value for money, Service more

There is Better Indian 8/12/2004

The food here is certainly good; however, better Indian food does exist in New York City. I was not particularly impressed with much about this place, though the service was reasonably good. The portions were smaller than I was expecting, and I actually left the restaurant still feeling hungry. There are many good Indian restaurants in this area, and also in different areas of the city, so this place does not really stand out enough to merit a return visit. Pros: Service is decent Cons: , Value more

50% off for a great lunch! 12/25/2002

kitzy indian decor in a comfortable atmosphere. The food was fantastic with excellent vindaloo and rogan josh. The saag was also up to par. Top it off with the lunch special and its an incomparable value. Pros: lunch special more

Pretty place, excellent food 10/10/2002

The samosas are crispy, the saag panir is amazing and the poori large and puffy. To top it all off, the the decor is really interesting. Try to sit on the low bench in the front window. more
