  • “I recently moved to sutton place and was looking for a good place to order indian food from. Found the perfect place in Chola! I ordered the kurkuri bhindi, chapli lamb kebab and of course chicken tikka masala. All were very well prepared and delicious. No need to look any further if youre looking for quality indian food in the area.”

  • “Ordered Chicken Kali Mirch from Menu. It tasted great. It was spiced up to my request. Ordered from the Main Menu (not their lunch specials), and comes with a dessert, rice and a vegetarian dish. $20 Delivery minimum is kind of a bummer for a single person for whom it makes no sense to order two lunches instead of one, and they should change this. I am not exactly close by but delivery arrived within the estimated time. ”

  • “The food is excellent, never had a bad experience and I have eaten here many times. The delivery time is usually within their estimate, very few times it has run over. Only one time I called to complain because they delivered too soon and they went out of their way to be helpful. Only negative thing I can say is that they are a little expensive. And Chola, if you are reading this, can you please add my two favorite dishes you always make for me to the menu? Aloo Gobi Matter Lamb Madras Thank you!”

  • “I don't know why I ever order from this place. I must wait just long enough to forget the fact that I'm always (ALWAYS) disappointed. The rice is poor, the vegan dishes are blah, and the menu is unclear as to what is actually vegan, etc. Oy vey. What am I going to cook now? I can't eat this.”

  • “Food is absolutely delicious! Every dish was perfectly seasoned. I highly recommend the masala dosa, the pakora, and the chole punjabi. They have lots of meat dishes but also a substantial vegan section on the menu which is fabulous since my husband eats meat and I'm vegan. The staff was very helpful and graciously answered all questions when I called before ordering. Our next order is on the way and we can't wait! ”

  • “The food is great...one of the best Indian restaurants in the city...but I had to take one star off for their delivery service...they are NEVER on time. You should routinely add at least 20-30 minutes to the estimated delivery time listed on this site. I don't think I've ever gotten my delivery sooner than 1 hour after placing it, on seamless or over the phone.”

  • “pretty bad food. Ordered idli/dosa. The sambar was pretty bad. Probably the worst that I have ever had. Sambar idli was an overpriced joke. On top of that the delivery was late by 30 mins.”

  • “WOW, this place plummeted downhill. If you're going to offer a lunch special with rice (literally the cheapest ingredient per volume on your menu), at least have the decency to fill more than 1/2 a small rice container with it. Also, at an appalling $7, you offer only 2 mini vegetable samosas? The price tag was always insane here, but at least I got a justifiable portion. Today I spent more than $20 to cover your delivery minimum thinking I'd have leftovers... guess not.”

  • “Best Indian food for delivery in NYC. Good veggie selection too. While the food is incredible, the actual delivery service can be spotty - we've had them miss items more than once, often don't label dishes when multiple people order, and very slow. Dat lamb vindaloo, though.”

  • “Food took about an hour to arrive, not 15-30mins as indicated. When I called the restaurant, they said 50 mins+ is the norm, but hung up on me when I asked why the discrepancy between estimated and actual time. Rating is PURELY for the food, which was decent.”

  • “Dont bother. Food Arrived on the colder side of lukewarm, after waiting double the estimated delivery time. Quantity was pitiful for the price. While the food itself wasn't bad, it also wasn't anything special - with the plethora of Indian options in the area, I'd never consider ordering from this place again. Go with Basera or Benares instead, you'd thank me if you could. ”

  • “Don't know what happened here . Cold, greasy with missing items to boot. You would think after one and a half hour delivery time (when the stated was 15-30) would have been enough time to at least get the order complete. Not sure what the premium pricing goes towards . It's definitely not the produce or the delivery staff. Maybe they were having a bad day. ”

  • “Ordered an uttapam and pani puri. It was all under seasoned. As in I had to add salt to the Sambar. Even the green chutney had no flavor and I slathered it on. The coconut chutney and sambar were also very watered down. The uttapam had promise- it looked and tasted very homemade which I like but it also had no seasoning so it was hard to enjoy. I may try this place in person but will not order delivery again. Why is it so hard to find a solid Indian place around here when there are so many?!”
