  • “This place is a godsend. It covers a patch of Astoria that simply has little to no good Indian options and beyond this it's flat out fantastic on every count. Big fan of the tandoor chicken and the crab kofta.”

  • “While the gravy for the chicken tikka masala was nice and tangy, the portion seemed to be the standard lunch size as opposed to a dinner size portion. In addition, the vegetable samosas were very tasty but they did not come with the traditional mint chutney or tamarind sauce. I tried this place because the prices were a bit lower than standard... Now I know why.”

  • “I'm sorry to say it but this is some of the most disappointing NYC takeout I've encountered. Their idea of chana masala is checkpeas swimming in what is akin to vodka sauce. I suspect that they have used canned tomato sauce to make this since it tastes like they used a bag of sugar in the gravy. The vegetable samosas were greasy and the filling was bland. I've learned my lesson on this one - will not be ordering from here again.”
