The ambiance was great, the food was generally good, but spicing was inconsistent. BUT, the service was horrific. After taking our order, the server and his helpers disappeared, except to serve the dishes. We had to actually wave down passing servers to get some chutney, replace an overly spiced channa masala, clear our dinner plates, order coffee and obtain our... More

We went to this restaurant for the first time thinking it would be a great restaurant as it is in New York. But to our surprise it was our worst experience ever. Reasons why things went wrong: 1. After being asked by the receptionist to wait to be seated, we waited and she disappeared. But we waited patiently for someone... More

Coming from an area in the UK where we have a lot of curry restaurants I would like to think I know a thing or two about Indian food. I was unsure of how popular or how good Indian food would be in the USA. We called in here and booked a table for later that evening which was a... More

Wonderful find, excellent service with amazing menus and bar/wine selection. And just off Times Square with a relaxed and romantic ambiance.

Rainy Sunday night in NYC. The restaurant was excellent, well located, and the food was delicious! I dont eat Indian food very often, simply because there are few Indian restaurants near my home in Florida. But this was a treat!

It's hard to find Utsav Restaurant since it is tucked away between buildings. It's walking distance from Time Square with a modern decor and good service. We were pleased with our dinner, drinks and service.

This place looked very smart and we were amazed to see it so quiet. However the service was not great, e.g. we asked to order scallops and were simply told "no". Upon questioning we found out that they had no scallops. (thats just one example of the poor communication). We ordered several items that were not in stock. Despite that... More

We enjoyed the Prix Fixe menu. The scallops appetizer was delicious and not too spicy for me as I don't like very spicy hot food. We also shared the samosa appetizer. I ordered the lamb and my friend ordered the chicken tikka masala and we shared. Both were very good and plentiful. We also shared dessert: rice pudding and Indian... More

I attended a business buffet luncheon at the Utsav Indian Restaurant. Our group was in a private dining room and was served an assortment of traditional Indian dishes with salad, naan and saffron rice: muttar paneer, lentils, spinach dhal, chicken vindaloo, lamb masala; and Sharabi Kheer (Rice pudding, rum infused raisins, coconut sorbet) and Gulab jamun creme brulee (Sweet milk...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
