    Fresh, flavorful, spicy, and filling Indian food served in a Chipotle-style construction line. Don't miss the Pulled Pork Vinadaloo Biryani. Read all about my visit on WinstonWanders below. Read more

    Operationally, it's the "Chipotle of Indian cuisine." And it works. Never has Indian food been so accessible as fast food. Try the spicy pulled pork vindaloo!

    Biryanis over feast for more meat and rice. Can't go wrong with chicken or pork vindaloo. Try the garlic naan if your still feeling hungry. Get as much pineapple raita as you can. Order online.

    Get the Feast: a little bit of everything, including your choice of rice, salad, and dal in addition to your main item and choice of naan. Comes in just under $10; not too shabby!

    The chicken tikka feast is good. You get just the right amount of portions where you can eat the entire thing and not feel too full. The line can take awhile so avoid during high lunch times.

    You can't go wrong with the chicken tikka. I would stay away from the paneer - it tastes sour sometimes which makes me think it's not fresh. definitely try the yummy mulligatawny soup though!

    Fast casual Indian food that hits the spot. Get the feast with saffron rice, chicken tikka masala and garlic naan, then go take a nap.

    Pleasantly surprised at how good this place is. Get the feast - paneer tikka is great. Be careful with the spice, though. I got level 3 (out of 4) and instantly regretted it.

    Chipotle-esque line but for Indian food! Love the biryani and samosas and for the spice lovers, you can ask for spicy. The medium level isn't too much heat at all :)

    Fast food Indian has been done on the mall food court level, but this place brings a freshness and variety unknown to mall shoppers. It's like an Indian Chipotle, in the best possible way.

    The Chipotle of Indian food is a great lunch staple for the Flatiron crowd. The feast with saag paneer, black lentils, and a side of onion fritters is my go to.

    The Feast is so good, and a great taste of everything. Get the Chicken Tikka. Everything else that complements, like the great Naan, makes it a delicious meal

    This place is perfect for quick fix Indian style food. The spicy chicken biryani is fantastic. Didn't care for the yogurt stuff. Way too sweet.

    Great concept of modernizing and making a kind of indian chipotle. Somewhat poor execution. A few things tasted like they had been heated from the freezer - artificial. Very cool drink machine.

    Mushroom dosas! Served 3 an order like chipolte's tacos! And gluten feee, a lot of gf options here. Everything pairs well with the refreshing cucumber mint sparkling water.

    Best ethnic food chipotle style! Long line during lunch but they're fast. Food can be a little greasy but it's good. Get the mango lasse!

    The biryani with saag paneer was light as air, not a bit greasy and insanely fresh (chopped red onions and cilantro for the win). Read more

    This is the Chipotle of Indian food. Everything is good...except for the naan. It's basically pita bread.

    The onion bhaji are small crispy battered onion bits. Dont expect pakoras and you will be fine. The extra pineapple raita for 50 cents is inexplicably only 1 tablespoon full in quantity.

    The comparisons to chipotle are fair but I think they take the edge in quality. This place is very good but not great. The pulled pork with pineapple is good.

    Assembly line style meets Indian cuisine. Not the greatest Indian, but I've definitely been more than once. Great for a quick bite.

    It's decent Indian food with a chipotle style model, but you'll get tastier and more abundant food at an actual Indian restaurant.
