    Great options beyond the Americanized Indian fare. Try the coondapur kori for a tasty and mild option to compliment their spicy food (like the patiala lamb kabab).

    Great quality Indian food if you're hunting for a spot on Curry Row. A bit too expansive of a menu but good for family style ordering. Also, "malai marke" means "extra malai (buttery cream sauce)".

    From the owners of Dhaba (best indian in NYC), this is the best restaurant on Curry row. Lots of coastal curries you won't normally find. The more spicy and coconut-y, the better.

    Delicious and quick delivery. Love a place that isn't afraid to go super spicy. Forsure going back.

    The food quality is exceptional, and the lunch special is a great deal! If you like spicy food, ask for their special achar sauce on the side.

    Much better (and a little pricier) than your average Indian place. Consistently delicious w good ingredients and extra veg/vegan friendly. A favorite is dal saag – unreal how tasty it is.

    Chicken Tikka Masala was excellent, but "Chicken Xacuti" was a great choice as well. Naan is a must, Mango Lassi was very thick and tasty. Definitely a great Indian restaurant.

    Spicy food lovers will indulge with the Madurai melagu curry with lamb. A true test to how much spiciness you can take. They have weihenstephaner Weiss bier on tap! Servos!

    Break out of the chicken tikka masala rut with the coondapur kori, a flavorful, deep-orange coconut chicken curry from the coastal city of Mangalore. Read more

    Everything’s great, nice and spicy too. Only thing is: the “roti” is just really dry naan bread, nothing like authentic roti. I’d pass on the roti

    A little pricier but the best I've had in East Village. All of them are great but the Saag Paneer stands out the most.

    Not your average Curry Row restaurant. The huge menu has dishes from all over India, and most of them succeed.

    Tons of food for $10. The Tikka Masala had a more sophisticated taste than I've had anywhere else. Good water. I give it 5 naans!

    Chicken in the Tikki Marsala is actually quite good, not just crap chunks masked with sauce! Also very nice bathrooms.

    Join the spicy club! I've tried the Phaal and Lal Maas and loved them (Lal Maas is more spicy). Maduria Melgu comes next.

    I love the food, but don't expect the best service on the weekends. Try the chicken tikka masala. Best I've had in awhile!

    Vegetarian Indian giving this place a seal of approval. The chili paneer is legit spicy. Biryani is a little dry. And the kurkuri bhindi is like catnip.

    So amazing! Get any of the shrimp curries, also the okra dry fry. Stick to coastal specialities just because they are more unique.

    Brown guy review here. Best Indian food I've had. Expensive as hell. And the service blows. But the food is too good, you'll ignore all the bad. Get the Murgh Makhni, Lamb Jalfrezi, Peas Palav.

    Essentially no atmosphere (we were the only ones in there) but the food was good! I think it’s more of a takeout place.

    High quality Indian. They charge you for the rice because it's also high quality.
