    The drinks and appetizers are amazing. Try the chili cheese bread (Indian food meets comfort food), and the Paneer Tikka (sounds simple but tastes incredible). The Brambles are my new favorite drink.

    Casual class with a playful wink. Start at the craft cocktail bar (signature punch!), try the whole menu (crispy okra, prawns, pork vindaloo - YUM!!!), repeat often. Love this place.

    Contemporary trendy Indian with amazing monkey character and details throughout. Incredible service, drinks and food. Favorites: Tabdoori chicken tikka, munkey lamb biryani, hard boiled eggs.

    Really amazing indian food and cocktails! Don't expect a menu of curries with meat options, this is more high end. The biryanis are the best.

    Away from the clamorous mess of second avenue, this neighborhood jewel is one part Commonwealth, one part expat -- shaken with a twist of whimsy. The paani puri are fun. The cocktails are spectacular.

    Great drinks especially the Pimm's No.1 Cup, beautiful interiors and always classy music. Try the pork vindaloo and the gajar halwa. They can do no wrong, trust me!

    Fun, trendy monkey theme. Unique modern Indian. Tabdoori chicken tikka and Munkey Lamb Biryani were excellent. Fantastic cocktails.

    Butter Ckn Tikka Masala was in a tasty & light sauce; Saag Paneer too salty; Naan was thin & not too dense; Cauliflower too vinegary &undercooked. If only seating was less cramped & in brighter space!

    Excellent little date spot on the UES. Crispy okra and vegetable korma are delicious.

    Fantastic South Asian themed speakeasy, with great cocktails and bar snacks. They usually have a happy hour - 2 for 1 drinks.

    Excellent Indian food in a somewhat upscale bar and grill. Very spicy! Be sure to make a reservation or you may not get a table.

    A much more upscale version of the typical Indian restaurant. It can get busy so call ahead and put your name on the waiting list!

    Ordered the Garden Vegetable Korma and savored its buttery texture and aromatic spices. Also ordered a side of Bombay Aloo, simply small cubed potatoes with cooked in spicy goodness. Delicious!

    Some of the best Indian in the neighborhood. Recommend the Pani puri for starters and butter masala for your main!

    Incredible drinks and food's not bad either as long as you can get over the borderline racist themes

    More like a bar with great vibe that serves decent indian food. Cauliflower side and Pani Puuri were not very good. Chicken and shrimp entrees did not have enough flavor or kick
