The resturant decor is OK. The quality of food is not good. If u order a spicy food it would be very HOT. The Service isn't of better quality. The desert as said in the menu wasn't availiable.

Elegant Indian Restaurant - No Flashing Lights

A spacious setting perfect for large parties who desire sophisticated decor and friendly service. An extensive menu with numerous kinds of Tandoori, especially unique is the Tandoori shrimp and salmon. Top it off with their homemade with rose flavored ice cream made from actual rose petals.

The restaurant didn't impress me as being too clean. The food was OK for Indian food and I didn't get sick, but I'm definitely not coming back.

Has gone downhill

It's easy to get in, easy to park but maybe they've outsourced the kitchen and wait staff as everything has declined. Food had been excellent, but we went back tonight and had stringy lamb in a tasteless sauce, spinach that made you remember why you didn't want spinach as a kid and chicken tikka masala that tasted like tomato sauce. The service was odd and the waiter started to argue when we didn't want the vegetable dish we'd ordered as it came covered with cocoanut, which we don't eat. The food was slow to come even though the restaurant was almost empty. Two of the three dishes were cold. It was totally disappointing. Prices are medium. Dinner for two (a filling dinner) runs about $70 with drinks but we're always happy with the food here. It's a reliable place with consistently good meals. The lunch buffet is a treat. At that time, parking is impossible, but you can walk over from Battery Park City.
