“Only Lunch is good!”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

i have been this place for lunch in office hours and found the food acceptable.

My mistake.

I took my In-laws for dinner at this place and i couldnt believe it is same place. We ordered entree "Palak Paneer". Cook was asleep or was in hurry to go home, he put "Sodium Bi-carbonate" instead of salt.

we complained and following happened:
1. Entree was immediately removed from table
2. No replacement was provided
3. We were charged for dish
4. We were 4 adults but they decided to put 18% gratuity on our bill

How does this place survive in this age, i cant figure out. Is there a way to put a formal complaint against this place?

“Great Food - Seamless Delivery”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

Have ordered on multiple occasions and used Seamless for delivery every time. Delivery is a little slower than some others, but the food is better quality and flavor. Chicken Vindaloo was very good, and nice and spicy. My favorite Lamb Biryani featured very tender chunks of lamb and good flavor.

“Puzzled”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

It looks like this is a shrinking chain - not sure what is happening. These used to be a reliable refuge for Indian food lovers - not quite as numerous as Starbucks, but skattered around the city in sufficient profusion that you were never very far from one. I am not sure how they were organized - they all seemed to have pretty much the same menu - but each one had its own personality and certain dishes were better here rather than there. In general though they have been extremely reliable and never let one down. Except now, when were were looking for one, and another, and they all seemed to be missing. I hope the remaining ones hang on because, again, it is pretty difficult to find such good Indian food at such reasonable prices.

“Best Indian food in downtown”
Reviewed 9 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

When it comes to Indian restaurants just in NYC downtown, I believe Baluchi's most definitely has the most authentic and delicious Indian food. And I'm being serious - I've been to every single Indian restaurant in downtown - multiple times. some others are good too, but none of them beat Baluchi's. Though other neighborhoods of NYC do have better Indian restaurants.

“Good Lunch Place in Downtown”
Reviewed 9 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

I went to Baluchi's with office colleagues. It's one of the finest place in Downtown area for Indian Lunch.
Must eat: Paneer Bhujia
Restaurant also offers lunch discount. Serving staff requires improvement.
