Small but well put together restaurant, good atmosphere, though a bit cramped when it got busy Wait staff was very friendly and helpful. The food wasn’t the best Indian Food we’ve ever had but it was ...very good. The fried okra was excellent as was the butter chicken tiki masala. We were celebrating a birthday and the presentation of the dessert with the sparkling torch and accompanying music was unexpected fun. See More

Unbelievable spot you could miss if u don't know about it. This place needs 5 stars or 10. Food has a unique flavor to it. Chicken tikka's were great, chilly cheese toast was from heaven, and shish ka...bab was mind blowing. Great loungish feel, cozy and tucked away. Nice hangout for buddies or a date. Would highly recommend!!!!!!!!!!! See More

A delightfully buzzing bar with excellent Ambience, food and a real fun place to be- watching people happily enjoying their exclusive drinks, well done barbecued kebabs, paneer and the scrumptious cri...sp okras which are out of this world! Delicious meals both vegetarian and non- vegetarian all delightful, delicious and differently Indian! Regulars come in and the new comers promise to visit again and again! You must try the "Paani puri" and Biryani! See More

The chicken tikka is to die for!!! You won't regret coming here. Best Indian food I've had in a while.

This place was close to our hotel and recommended by hotel staff. We had dinner and drinks and then brunch the next morning. Dinner was vindaloo pork, Chana masala, and some type of tapas flavor Cocktails were unique and tasty. Try the dark and stormy👌🏻 Brunch was the real treat as I hadn't tried Indian breakfast. Crepes with ground lamb and some unique dressings. Quite crowded for dinner but easy to get in for brunch. Playful ambience and solid service will make this a treat if I'm passing through again.

Drunken Munkey exceeded my expectations!!! My friend and I met here for drinks because we heard they had a fun cocktail list which they did but the food and the atmosphere were phenomenal!!! The mutto...n Kababs were my favorite!!! Plus the bartender Juan was AWESOME! I will definitely be heading back to this place! See More

British Colonial Indian cuisine. The Lamb Pao was amazing! Cool tunes. Very friendly and efficient staff. A great stop while cheering on the runners!

(I'm a tough rater, so don't think the 4 star rating is a criticism.) Very nice vibe. Very good food. And a really nice, friendly, and helpful bartender/waitperson. Sort of, I imagine, what a gentleme...n's club in Bombay maybe have felt like during the Raj. I must say that that was a tad disquieting, but it was, nevertheless, a very interesting feel, and the food was very good.

I will definitely go back. Downside: I think this is the spot in Manhattan furthest from a subway stop. At least it felt that way. But definitely not a reason not to go back.

It's my go-to upper-east side stop with late arrival to NYC. Always good consistent food and attentive and friendly service; which means a lot to a person dining alone at the bar. Good food and nice people.

I love this place! Great food and cocktails. However, I was a little disappointed with the Kedgeree I had today. I have had this a couple of times before and it was presented with naan over the top... of the bowl and there was more salmon. When I commented on this to the waitress, she said it had always been made this way. Not true! See More

A warm and intimate space of just the right size to hold a small party comfortably. Ordered the Garden Vegetable Korma and savored its buttery texture and aromatic spices. Also ordered a side of Bomba...y Aloo, simply small cubed potatoes with cooked in spicy goodness. The plate was completed with rice and Nan bread and a small tub of yogurt sauce. Everything delicious! Washed everything down with a glass of Malbec -- one of just several superb wines in stock I am sure. Hoping for a return visit soon. See More

This is a must go place in NYC. Loved the food. Being an Indian, we ordered 4 different things for dinner and bingo, they were cooked to perfection. The cocktails were nice too and we got complementary desert!

Love the food and funky cool atmosphere. Hidden gem of UES. You actually need a reservation for this place.

Went there with a friend last Wednesday night. Drinks are excellent, but the food is ok. The atmosphere is lively, but you feel rushed and not very welcomed when right after you are start with dess...ert bill arrives.
Will not be going back
