Kerala to Anfield to the West Village 3/12/2008

Been coming here for over 10 years, always a warm welcome never let's me down. I love the lunch bargain but then also go there with my friends for dinner. Favorites are Bombay Liver or should I say Mumbai Liver, Vegetarian Thali .... can't get enough of the chicken tikka which must be because he's right next to Ottamanelli's makes sense why it is so tasty. Recently make be because it was winter I have fallen for the Biryani Shrimp. Only downside is it gets really busy on weekends, but I have gone really late like 11PM and still gotten served. Did I say bargainous specially the lunch special !!! Pros: Price location, food, people Cons: busy, no reservations more

Unbelievable service 2/4/2007

The velvet coated walls of the Ghandi Cafe establish your transport into another world. This being my first dining experience at an Indian restaurant, I did not know what to expect. The host ushered us to a table in the back of the long, narrow restaurant. We started our meal with meat samosas, which were piping hot from the fryer, which perfectly complimented the couple of Kingfishers we ordered. The waiter was very friendly and accomodating. He asked us where we were from and we learned a few tidbits about him and his Bangladeshi background. That human connection made the meal even more satisfying; it was a real treat and something I've never gotten from any restaurant in NYC. This place has customer service written all over it! \r I ordered the Bombay Aloo (potato with spices) and my companion ordred the Lamb Kurma (lamb cooked with cream, almond, and spices in a Mughlai style). We received a table heater which the two dishes were placed upon, so as to keep them warm. We also ordered two orders of Naan (flat bread), which I suggest to eat as soon as you get it because it's less appetizing cold. \r The Bombay Aloo perked up my taste buds; it was an alert type of sensation versus an alarming one. I tried my friend's Lamb Kurma, and although it was creamy (which I usually don't like), the sweetness of the cream brought out the flavors of the lamb, as well as the spices used to marinate it. \r My companion and I lounged there for quite some time, and the owner/manager in charge presented us with two servings of rice pudding ""on the house"", which was followed by complimentary tea. \r This was probably the best dining experience I've had in the city.\r One thing that doesn't make this place a ten was the small, single bathroom, and the mirrors on the walls, which can be nice, but with someone as narcisstic as me, it's hard to keep your focus on the food. Pros: Friendly and Efficient Service, Ambience, food selection Cons: Lack of space, single bathroom more

Love 12/22/2006

I'm in love with this place. I went a year ago and they were completely empty and totally sweet. Then I came back with my girlfriend on a friday night, and it was ridiculously crowded. There was no space to wait, so we had to stand outside. The owner came out and gave us some bread, telling us that we would be seated as soon as possible and basically pleading us not to leave. He said that they will be expanding soon. In New York, how many places do you know of that actually care about their customers??? Here, they do. Free tea, free rice pudding, good prices, excellent service. Plus, the place is beautiful. There is a velvety wall on one side and a huge mirror on the other, both strung with lights. It's romantic, sweet, and tasty. Easily my favorite restaurant. I live on the Upper West side but make the treck to Greenwich village regularly just the same. The Indian restaurants in my neighborhood don't compare. Pros: Romantic, great food, cozy, fantastic service more

The Best!!!! 11/12/2006

Everything I have eaten here is fantastic. Everything in the appetizer sampler is delicious. I love the masala entrees. This restuarant has a huge selection compared to many Indian restaurants and everything is wonderful and fair to low priced, especially when you consider the high quality of the food.\r \r The service is among the friendliest I have encountered in the city. They really care that you enjoy your experience. The atmosphere is wonderful. They really have made the very most of a small space.\r \r I regularly travel over 100 blocks just to eat here. This is my favorite Indian restaurant. It has the best food, service, atmosphere, and value of any of many Indian places I have tried. Pros: Food, Value, Service, Ambience, Almost Everything Cons: Currently, it is sometimes too small to accomodate all the people that wish to eat there more

Go! 9/18/2005

No Lie- best Indian Food i have ever had. Excellent spices and breads. more

WOW indian food at its best! 5/11/2005

This small wonderful (and romantic) place has amazing food. The service is kind (albeit sometimes slow) and thoughtful. I would definately go there for a great time and great indian food. Pros: great food, ambience, staff Cons: slow service more

The Real Deal 3/1/2005

It's fabulously cheap, it's cheerful, and the food is the real thing. My vegetable thali tasted exactly like what I ate for four weeks in India - delicious. Cheese poori wasn't so great, but we loved everything else. This is a great place for carnivores and vegetarians to eat together; the menu options are extensive for both. Pros: Service, Value for Money, Vegetarian menu Cons: Not for Big Groups, Limited wine list more

Not for groups 10/28/2004

Went here with my girlfriends on a Friday night and the food was cheap, but not delicious. You could find better Indian food elsewhere. Don't go here if you are with 4 people or more since the place is small. Our waitress mixed up my friend's order and was rude about it. more

Great Food, Great Price! 8/1/2004

My girlfriend & I had a great time at this place! We ordered two entrées, an appetizer and two glasses of wine, and the bill only came to $32 - did I mention that they threw in free after dinner tea and dessert? Our waiter (I think he was the owner) was extremely friendly, and recommended some great entrées for us. We will definitely be back! Pros: great value, frieindly staff, not crowded more

Cheap Dependable Indian Eats 5/17/2004

Solid, dependable and cheap Indian food. Only item I wouldn't recommend so far is the keema matar: it seemed a bit bland, and that's even ordered ""very spicy"" (which is how I with my steel tongue always order Indian food). Pros: Cheap, Dependable more

Great and cheap! 12/7/2003

I love this place. I just happened across it one time when my mom was visiting, and we were both incredibly pleasantly surprised. The staff are SO friendly and attentive, and you get so much food for such a small price. I highly recommend the chana sag. I love it there and highly recommend it!!! more

Great. 11/14/2003

Its the best Anglo Indian curry hut in Manhattan and I have been to them all. The only thing I wouldn't have is the Biryani, everything else is Pukka ! (The owner is from Nothampton) Pros: Anglo Indian Food, Service, Authentic Cons: Decor more

Straight up indian food without all th hype Pros: cozy atmosphere, intimate but casual, inexpensive more

I love it. 8/2/2002

This is my fave Indian Rest. so far in NY. I love the food and the staff is super nice. They bring a complementary pudding and spiced chai tea at the end of each meal. Generally, the owner is there greeting all of the cutomers with his friendly smile. Great lunch specials. Great food. Wonderful dishes. more

surprisingly good 6/7/2002

I was suprised when I ducked into this restaurant to get out of the rain. Vegetable samosas were cooked differently, and looked like balls of fried string onions/potatoes. Very filling, although it just tasted like fried onions. Chicken vindaloo and vegetable vindaloo were super spicy and delicious. Very large portions for a cheap price! Naan was good as well. Pappadam was too oily and stale. Free rice pudding and herbal tea was served at end of meal. Not the best Indian food, but pretty good for cheap Indian food! more
