We are fairly well informed consumers of south Asian cuisine and have our favorites, so we're always comparing to what we've had elsewhere (including India and Pakistan). Tulsi is certainly acceptable, though not exceptional. We give them credit for their willingness to make accommodations for...More

My wife and I had been visiting relatives this weekend and were ready for some spicy Indian food. This place was the closest to our hotel so we tried it and liked it very much. It is in Carytown, an eclectic section that appears lost...More

It was bit pricey and service wasn't as great as expected. Also ordered biryani and taste was awful. Need to stop adding too much species and should make feel like India with more Indian decoration and not western. Suggestion look at Mexican Resturants.More

The spiciness index isn’t very accurate, but the food was phenomenal and the service great (I never saw the bottom of my glass).

I have eaten Indian food all over the world (including India). This was very americanized, not much like real Indian food. I asked for spice level Medium-hot. Not only did it have no heat, it had almost no flavor. The ambiance is pleasant and the...More

Great spot in Carytown. Best naan selection in Richmond. Some coastal sauces with coconut not seen elsewhere. New place, service was a little off on timing. Alcohol options limited. Look forward to trying again.

We have been eating at Tulsi since it opened. The vegetables are fresh and cooked perfectly. The spice levels are always balanced and pack the heat you want.

It's all about balance. Whether that's in context of freshness, spices, or heat. I'm happy to see you enjoyed Tulsi. Thank you for tying us, Lauren.

We were hoping for better, there are some great Indian places in town, so maybe we are spoiled. The menu has lots of choices, we picked our go to staples korma, biryani and masala. They were fine, but there are better options in town.
