This small cost restaurant service good sized portions of tasty, well presented food. We were surprised that most dishes were being offered at 50% discount for eat-in lunch customers. Service was good and the waiteress was eager to explain... More

I've been here dozens of times, and never had a bad or extraordinary dish - just solid north Indian lunch for less than $15 per person, with tax and tip. Service is not unpleasant, despite the afternoon rush (get there before 12:15pm to guarantee yourself a table - there's no waiting area). If you find a better, affordable option for... More

Few minutes away from the Freedom Tower, this Indian restaurant offers very tasty Indian food to very decent prices. Nice and friendly service. You can get good deal for lunch. Highly recommended if you are in the neighborhood.

Good, tasty indian food and friendly service at not-really-newyorker price. A place to consider if you're in south Manhattan.

Stopped in for lunch. Super tasty Indian food and efficient, friendly service. I wish the lunch entrees came with some bread. The restaurant has very limited seating and it super tight getting in and out. The restaurant is NOT wheelchair-accessible.

Place is very small so plan to be cozy with the other guests but, the food is spot on and the service is meticulous. If you are in the mood for Indian you won't go wrong here.

Looks a little old from the outside and the furnishing are a bit worn but the food is really food. We had a great Talli and Chicken Vindaloo lunch which was great , service prompt.

Food was much better than expected based on previous replies, not as 'spicy' as would've hoped, but when I go back will just ask them to make spicier... Small restaurant, good service, good quality food, cooked well, if you are considering, I'd recommend just giving it a go!

Thank JKZ10

Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
