    Fun atmosphere, solid food, great prices. Cash only! (Top of the stairs the right! There are two others next door and below, don't be fooled!)

    Large groups file up the stairs to Panna II, waiting for seats at tables lit by strings of Christmas lights. Grüner veltliner and moderately sweet German rieslings would be fine pairings. Read more

    Panna II = up the stairs and turn right. Milon = up the stairs and turn left.

    The guys outside will battle each other for your business at this BYOB staple. Bargaining pro tip - ask them who will offer you a free appetizer. Winner winner, (curry) chicken dinner.

    This place is so fun and food is amazing. Festive and fun music. Everyone is really nice too. Chicken tikka masala is amazing. Don't forget the garlic naan and samosas!

    Food was great and the birthday entertainment, really good value for money. Just slightly small if there’s a big group of people. Great in small groups

    Fun atmosphere, wild decorations, decent food and great prices. BYOB (wine, beer, liquor) policy and it’s cash only

    There's 4 Indian restaurants stacked here. They will bargain with you (to come to theirs) so come prepped on knowing what you want for free. Cheap, BYOB and chili lights! (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Bring a nice date and nice wind because the lights will give you a headache

    Must see for out-of-towners, such a NY experience. The décor makes you feel like you are dining at a disco ball & its impossible to spend more than 20 even if you order soup, appetizer & entree. —Sara

    Come here when it’s someone’s birthday and enjoy the special light show. Or just enjoy the kitchy atmosphere and the cheap Tandoori Chicken. BYOB!

    If you didn't climb UP a flight of stairs to get here, you were duped into going to the wrong place. There's like 2 or 3 at the same location, although all pretty similar

    One of the best Indian restaurants in the known universe. BYOB from the market next door with a very respectable beer selection. No reservations, small like a shoebox, and so awesome.

    The food is excellent. Start with Mixed Appetizer and try Chicken Makhani after. You can bring your own drink!

    Get the samosas. Just do it. And drizzle on the sweet brown sauce and then go forth and live your best life...

    If you go Friday at 8, expect to stand in line outside for a while. Don't let hustlers try to get you to go to the restaurant downstairs in the process. It's not the same.

    Delicious Indian food, but let's be real, you go here to feel like you're eating inside of a Christmas Tree

    Tiny restaurant with great food and a very fun ambiance. Get here early because it does get really crowded quickly!

    BYOB! a great place to go get drunk for cheap. Hit up one of the liquor stores along 1st avenue and head in here with a bunch of friends. Order many orders of chicken pakura, thank me later.

    Don't come here if you're prone to seizures. Else, come here every day. Because its the best place. In the world.

    Fun for Birthday dinners but if you want amazing Indian food, go to Dhaba on Lexington.

    It's not spacious, and when I went, a party of 14 sat next to my girl and me...lot of server ass bumping into our table. Food wasn't bad though. Good for quick bite

    Prepare to be lied to, yelled at, and's awesome. Best way to order is to tell them what you like/don't like and let your waiter decide your fate.

    The lights are neat and the overall atmosphere is fun but the food is absolutely horrendous. The samosas were basically knishes, no flavor at all. My paneer dish was burnt and flavorless as well.

    Lots of fun but don't even bother making a reservation. They will say yes to anything and you will be screwed when you arrive.

    It's not about the food. Came w a big group, waited 30mins+ for a table even though we booked; given $40 set menu with no discussion & the food was atrocious. Yet we still had a great time!

    Workmanlike food but the huge cheap lunch special & over-the-top interior design (chili pepper decorative lights! A moghul tent for a dining room!) makes it all worthwhile.

    The food is actually decent but its the staff and vibes that are really why you keep coming back. BYOB.

    Just...just go. The food is great, the staff is ridiculous, the lights will keep you amused for ages, and if you're lucky, you might even see a restaurant vs. restaurant brawl.

    It's nice, because it's BYOB. But..bad dining vibe. Doormen outside try to confuse you into going to restaurants around it.
