  • “I love Ajanta. My friends and I eat there basically once a week. It's inexpensive and pretty good for the price. Also, if you become friends with the owner he'll give you free mango rice pudding. Great experience every time. Ajanta is the best.”

  • “This is by far one of the best indian restaurants in the neighborhood and I look forward to ordering from them again. The food is authentic, fresh, and affordable- given the quality and quantity of the food. ”

  • “The food from Ajanta is fine - nothing spectacular, but decent and fast. HOWEVER, when the delivery man showed up with my food, he told me off for putting the tip on my credit card. Absolutely inexcusable. I won't be ordering from Ajanta again, as long as their delivery staff think they can tell me how to spend my money.”

  • “I would give it 0 stars if that were an option! I have never written a review about any restaurant, however, I was so utterly disgusted by the food that I received from Ajanta that I had to let others know so that it saves them from ordering this atrocious food. I ordered Chicken tikka masala that was cold and tasted like old chicken in tomato sauce. The daal was incredibly watery, and the lamb biryani was tasteless and dry as sawdust. I threw most of the food out because it was just awful and only ate the bread, which was also awful. As an Indian myself, I am embarrassed for my people that this food of such low quality is even made available to the public. I have NEVER been this disappointed with any take out in NYC. I want my money back.”

  • “I enjoy Indian cuisine. However, this was not well-made. The appetizers were desiccated and the chicken dish was oily and had a disturbingly high proportion of gristle.”

  • “This is the first review that I have ever written for an establishment, but I must tell all of you, NEVER order from this restaurant. I ordered the Tandoori Fish, and received a Tandoori fish head and tail. There was more bones than meat, and whatever meat was in the dish was overcooked and dry in spite of the bland sauce that was in the container. This is a huge letdown given the other reviews I read about Ajanta. Don't waste your time or your money. ”

  • “Absolutely false advertisement. I just received my food and this is not Indian food!! I ordered the Sag Paneer, and I got what I know is frozen spinach in some kind of white sauce (from a can I'm sure). It does not look, taste and is not made anything like Sag Paneer! The rice is NOT basmati rice, it is white rice. The Samosas you can tell were deep fried in too much oil, and stuffed with frozen potato squares. I'm so pissed! Not worth anyone's time or money!! AND the order came surprisingly fast and now I know why, because it's crap fake Indian food!! ”

  • “Delivery: Mango Lassey was as great as always. Their chicken tikka masala has less yogurt and more tomato than I'm used to. The sauce was more red and less orange than you see in most Indian restaurants. Good experience over all. ”

    Eric

  • “The other reviewers have got to be Ajanta employees. I love Indian food and have eaten at countless Indian restaurants. This is by far the worst Indian restaurant ever. Their tomato curries taste like watered down chef boyardee. The tofu might be from a can as well. There may not be that many good Indian joints in the area, but you can find better.”

  • “Worse Tikka masala I've ever tasted. The sauce should have had a creamier texture and the chicken was in large chunks. Almost as if the person cooking the dish didn't care about what he was making. Expected better.”

  • “This is, hands down, the worst Indian food I have ever had. I just literally threw away $20 worth of food. The only thing that was even edible was the bread, and it was still the worst Indian bread I've ever had. I'm not even that picky. Gross. ”
