A few days ago I got one of my occasional sudden cravings for authentic Indian food. The island of Manhattan is filled with Indian restaurants, expensive or cheap, fancy or home style, authentic or fusion. For years you could go to 6th Street between 1st and 2nd Avenues (and around the corners at both ends) to find restaurant after restaurant... More

We came to visit this place with my friend and we were shocked how rude was waiter with us. First he insisted in agressive manner that we should pay 20$ or more or we couldn't eat there. Even as we agree when it was time to pay he made up his own price he said just give me 25$ and... More

When you think of NY food you do not think of curry. Therefore, I was pleasantly surprised at how good this curry was. A very small restaurant, which can fell pretty cramp, but a nice atmosphere. Food and drink orders were promptly taken. Food came quick and portion size was food. I ordered the butter chicken which was not at... More

Went here for a friends birthday. It was ok not great. It just ok. Thank goodness we found out that you could bring your own wine because they don't serve alcohol.

This was by no means the best curry i've had, the food was a little bland, the space was far too cramped and the service wasn't the best (drink spilt on my wife within 2 minutes and only a serviette and a vague apology was offered) but the atmosphere and kitsch decor is like nothing else. Don't expect a fine... More

Our friend took us down here for a curry. First time we've experienced the East Village, which we liked a lot! Really funny how when you arrive there are actually 3 competing restaurants with the same decor and nothing between them really! Just some friendly banter between what seems like members of the same family trying to steal each other's... More

This is certainly the most colourful restaurant I have been to. Full of multicoloured lights it has a great atmosphere. But this is not were it ends. The service, in spite of being fully occupied, was friendly and good. The food offered is northern Indian. The food was excellent and we enjoyed everyone of the dishes we tried. Definitely a...

Terrible food, very rude and abrupt service. Would never go back. They even messed up the naans, there was a Kraft cheese single melted in our "cheese" naan. Curries I've eaten from a food court have been better. Only give one star for the lights which are interesting.

Staying in East Village

Neighbourhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighbourhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
