    Really good and authentic Indian food. The chicken tiki is great but the chicken korma is the way to go if you want to get a blend of different spices

    Chat rolls are fresh and tasty. Ask for a side of tamarind if you get a slider for dipping.

    The samosa I got was definitely refried so it was wayyy too greasy. The Kati roll itself is good. I would skip the combo plate and just double up on the Kati roll if you're hungry.

    The green chutney they give you is soooo good and not overly spicy - ginger, cilantro, and onion from what I can detect. Use it on the kind of dry chicken and your roll will be amazing

    Unfortunately the vada pav comes less dressed up than advertised. In the quest to be accessible I fear some of the chaat has skimped on spice and taste

    Besides the chaat and kati rolls, try the kulfi. It's very popular and gets sold out fast.

    This place is the bomb. Try the chicken Korma roll and the samosa chaat. Both really delicious.

    Order the palak patte ki chaat. Crunchy spinach leaves take the place of crackers in this chaat, and get topped with that saucy trio of yogurt, tamarind, and chili-mint. Read more

    Not sure what the hype is about. Lamb seekh Kabob and Pav bhaji did not taste good.

    Among the best Indian food places in Manhattan. Lamb biryani, rasmalai, and kathi rolls are a must try. The best part bout the food was great flavors in everything with very low grease.

    With onions, tomatoes, green peppers, and spicy green chilies, this is basically a delicious Indian-spiced breakfast burrito. Make sure you dip a few bites in the spicy green cilantro-rich sauce
