Bananas in Butter Chicken??????

I have never written a review on a restaurant but the order experience was horrible. I was excited to try this restaurant given the great reviews. As Butter Chicken (Chicken Mahkni) is my favorite dish, I ordered two dishes for delivery. To my dismay, the sauce was non-creamy and had chunks of bananas. I called the restaurant and was told there were no bananas in the dish. As the chef had already gone home for the evening, the employee said there was nothing he could do and that I should seek a refund from the delivery company. Dismissive, untruthful staff, wasn't able to eat the food, and having to dispute order...A real disappointment.

As an Indian I am embarrassed that this is how the restaurant is presenting "Indian food" to New Yorkers. Every item On the menu has the same taste- that of rubber, which canned curry sauce poured over it. With the $16.95 platter I was served dollar store pita bread NOT naan..really???? So surprised to see 8/10 rating but now I know why there were no Indians at this restaurant..only first timers getting introduced to Indian cuisine.

I've been to a few of the Indian restaurants on East 6th, and Spice Cove has quickly become my favorite. The food is spectacular, incredibly delicious and SO cheap ($10 for an entree and several price-fixed menus for $10-15!!). The bottles of wine were so inexpensive I had to ask if the prices were by the glass ($16-18 for a bottle). The atmosphere is funky and cozy, staff was very pleasant. Enjoy!

Wow, the combo platters for one could feed 2-3people easily!! The 2 of us made the mistake of getting one each...we couldnt fit all the food on the table, let alone in our bellys! AMAZING! Well worth the money.
